Notice of public hearing to propose changes to municipal electoral boundaries

Proposed municipal electoral boundaries

Proposed municipal electoral boundaries

Public notice is given that a public hearing is being held to enact a bylaw that would change municipal electoral boundaries. The public hearing is scheduled for:

Date: Tuesday, Sept. 10

Time: 1:45 p.m.

Location: Council chamber; Leduc County Centre (1101 5 St.)

Leduc County’s electoral boundaries were last updated in 1988. Since that time, the county has changed in many ways. Notable changes include the Village of New Sarepta’s dissolution into a county hamlet in 2010, and four annexations of Leduc County land.

The proposed changes to the municipal electoral division boundaries would more evenly distribute the population amongst the seven electoral divisions; proposed boundaries are detailed in the included map.

If approved, a change to electoral boundaries would take effect for the next municipal election in 2021; your current elected official will continue to represent you for the remainder of the council term.

A copy of the proposed bylaw can be viewed here; it is also available for review at Leduc County Centre from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Leduc County Centre is located at Suite 101, 1101 5 St. in Nisku.

A Leduc County elector wishing to file a petition regarding the proposed bylaw must do so in compliance with Part 7 of the Municipal Government Act, which includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • The petition must be filed with Leduc County’s county manager by Oct. 29, which is within 60 days of the last newspaper advertisement
  • The petition must be signed by at least 1,317 Leduc County electors, which represents 10 per cent of the county’s total population

Written submissions mailed, delivered or faxed by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019 will be included on the council agenda.
