HALIFAX – Leading up to the 2012 election, The Governance & Boundary Review Committee of Council is undertaking a review of the polling districts and boundaries, hoping to address key questions around how Council can work better for HRM citizens. The first of the public meetings took place last night, with six more to follow across the different HRM districts through March 10th. Discussion topics include the size of electoral districts, the role of district councillors, and the decision-making power and size of Community Councils and Regional Council.
The public meetings are one aspect of the larger review, which also includes an online presentation, survey, and the opportunity to make written submissions by March 26th. Take at least one of these opportunities to contribute, air your post-amalgamation woes, celebrate your councillors, or simply muse on what works and what doesn’t.
