SUMA passes ‘anti-democratic’ resolution

As some of you may have already heard, a resolution to modernize public notice requirements was recently passed at the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association convention.

This means that SUMA will now lobby the Provincial government, as the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) does, to change the Act to allow alternative methods of disseminating public notices.

The SWNA will now be looking at contacting Warren Kaeding, Minister of Government Affairs, who’s department oversees The Municipalities Act, and will be lobbying to have the Act remain as it is when regarding the public notice requirements of being advertised in a newspaper.
