Niagara Region has requested a regulation from the Minister of Municipal Affairs for authorization to change the composition of Niagara Regional Council to allow an additional representative from the Township of West Lincoln.
The additional representative would be elected at large by the voters in West Lincoln only to serve on Regional Council. This would result in West Lincoln being represented at Regional Council by the Mayor and a Regional Councillor.
Members of the public can provide comments on this proposal to the Regulatory Registry until October 8, 2017.
The proposed legislation would authorize Niagara Region to exercise its power under the Municipal Act, 2001 to pass a by-law to change the composition of regional council.
