I will make sure to achieve set goals but not limited to:
To work with other council members to set the overall direction of the municipality in my role as a policy-maker. The policies that the council sets are the guidelines for the administration to follow as it handles the operations of the municipality. Much ofmy time on the council will be spent considering new policies and programs and reviewing the current ones to make sure they are working as they should. In the spirit of collaboration, a municipality may enter into an agreement respecting services with Indigenous peoples or a Métis settlement and is required to consult with Indigenous peoples or Métis settlement when developing certain land use plans
I commit to helping my council in the municipal organization of:
a) Developing and evaluating the policies and programs of the municipality;Council’s primary role is to ensure that services are provided to citizens andproperty owners.This involves establishing policies about what programs and services are to be delivered, the level at which they are delivered, and the budgetary requirements. Council evaluates the policies and programs through information obtained from the CAO and feedback from the citizens.
b)Carrying out the powers, duties and functions expressly given to council under the Act or any other legislation.
The council is responsible for ensuring that the municipality acts within its enabling legislation. A municipality can be taken to court by any person if itis perceived to be acting outside its legal authority. As well, the council is responsible for ensuring that the municipality meets all requirements established in legislation, such as the requirement to hold public hearings on certain matters, develop a budget and levy taxes, appoint an auditor, etc. The legislation establishes minimum requirements; however, the council can go beyond these minimums, provided that they act within their legislative authority
