The AAMDC would like to remind our members that Alberta Municipal Affairs is seeking public input on possible changes to the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA). The 36 question survey seeks input on pertinent issues, such as; term of office, timing of elections, eligibility and campaign financing.
The deadline to submit your feedback is July 31, 2012.
The Local Authorities Election Act sets out the election processes and procedures for municipal and school board elections. It was enacted in 1983 and has been amended several times since that date.
Currently, the AAMDC has one active resolution specific to the LAEA:
- 2-11S: THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties request the Province of Alberta amend theLocal Authorities Election Actto set a 4-year term for municipal elected officials.
