We were wondering when the new mayor and Council take up their seats. The answer is – soon.
WHEN DO THE NEWLY ELECTED MEMBERS ASSUME OFFICE?
For council members, the successful candidates, including candidates who
were elected by acclamation, are declared elected by the clerk at the first
meeting of the council after the time for applying for a recount has expired.
The meeting must be held within 4 weeks after ordinary polling day.
The deadline for a recount application is 10 days after polling day ie the 28th of October.
There is an introduction to the MGA here which will put you all to sleep but no doubt will be a new councillors’s bible for a while.
The orientation for new councillors will be held in Truro!
This year’s Orientation for Newly Elected Municipal Councillors will be held on Thursday November 20, and Friday November 21 at the “soon to be” Holiday Inn at 437 Prince St. in Truro. . [more info here]
