Procedural Bylaw 555

  • Removed provisions that allowed for councillors to cancel meetings in writing
  • Removed the allowance for all votes that were not unanimous to be recorded votes
  • Corrected the term “in Camera” to a “closed session.”

  • New definitions for Nuisance, Service and Restricted Dogs
  • New Licensing categories for Nuisance, Service & Restricted Dogs
  • New requirements of an owner whose animal/dog has been classified as a nuisance or restricted animal
  • New restrictions the CAO may impose for Nuisance and Restricted Dog
