The Municipality is governed by a four year term elected Council, made up of four Councillors and one Reeve who is the head of council.  Council's core authorities and responsibilities are defined by the Municipal Act of Manitoba. Generally speaking, each member of council must attend council and committee meetings and participate in the development and evaluation of policies and programs that consider the well-being and interests of the municipality as a whole.
Council Meetings

Council meets at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month. except July and August, in July and August Council meets at 5:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday only.  Council Meetings are held in the Council Chambers at the Municipal Office.  All Council Meetings are open to the public to attend as an audience only, and we welcome attendance.  


The Council also welcomes input and feedback from ratepayers on all matters affecting the quality of life in our jurisdiction.  To this end, Council invites delegations to appear before them during Council Meetings.  Persons wishing to present information to or make a request of Council may do so by appearing as a delegation at any regular meeting of Council.  To ensure best use of time and to provide for a fair method of dealing with delegations at meetings, the following will apply:

  1. Requests to appear as a delegation along with a copy of any presentation or information to be included , must be received by the Municipal Office no later than 5:00 pm on Wednesday before the meeting at which you will appear.

  2. Persons registering for a delegation must provide a short, comprehensive statement as to the subject and purpose of the delegation.  This will allow the appropriate personnel/department to be contacted and research conducted prior to the delegation to provide pre-delegation information for council.

Delegations are for presenting information therefore, Council may require more time to consider the matter or make a decision and may choose to follow-up on the information at a later date.
