HRM Electoral Boundary Recommendations to go to NS Utility and Review Board

(Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2010) - Halifax Regional Council will send recommended revisions to municipal electoral boundaries to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board for review.

Every eight years under the Municipal Government Act, municipalities are required to review the “fairness and reasonableness” of the number of polling districts (electoral boundaries) along with the number of councillors for the municipality. The HRM review was conducted by the Governance and District Boundary Review Committee, chaired by Mayor Peter Kelly.

“The committee put many hours and a good deal of hard work into these recommendations. This effort included extensive public consultations that have informed the final report,” said Mayor Kelly following today's Council vote.

The full report and recommendations can be found at http://www.halifax.ca/council/agendasc/101130rcAgenda.html .

Recommendations on the size of Council were approved by Council in August 2010 and will be forwarded to the Utility and Review Board along with the boundary recommendations.
