We Want to Hear From You! On...
the COUNCIL SIZE for the TOWN OF WINDSOR & its MUNICIPAL BOUNDARIES OF POLLING DISTRICTS
COUNCIL SIZE - Currently Windsor Council consists of one (1) Mayor and four (4) Councillors elected at large by 2,350 eligible voters. (This current council size started in 1996; before then, there was one mayor and six councillors).
BOUNDARIES & POLLING DISTRICTS - Windsor Council is elected at large and is 9.06 square kilometres, so there is currently no need to review boundaries of polling districts.
WHAT IS NEEDED FROM YOU - Councils of EVERY town & municipality in Nova Scotia are required, every eight years, as per Section 369 of the Municipal Government Act, to review their council size and keep or alter the number of boundaries of polling districts.
SO, we the Town would like to hear from you, our citizens, your opinions and perspectives on Windsor’s Council size before Friday, October 3, 2014. They may be submitted the following ways:
• By snail-mail to Shelleena Thornton c/o Town of Windsor, PO Box 158, Windsor, NS B0N 2T0
