Policies and Plans

Council Policies

Council policies and Administrative Orders provide direction on the administrative affairs of the municipality.

These policies provide broad direction to the Administration for the delivery of programs and services.

Current policies are available to download in pdf format. The policy documents posted here are for reference only and every effort is made to ensure the policies contain the most recent revisions. For additional policies, go to Administrative Orders.
