At the Special Council Meeting on March 27, 2020 held at the Community Hall, the CAO of the Village of Longview in compliance with section 226(1) of the MGA declared the petition requesting the repeal of Bylaw 394-17 appointing Dale Harrison passed February 21, 2017 not sufficient based on the section 233(2) of the MGA. The petition was filed on March 10, 2020 well outside of the 60 days established by section 233(2).
Council acknowledged the declaration of not being sufficient and according to section 226(3) of the MGA Council is not required to take any notice of it.
Council is fully behind the Peace Officer Program. During the time the Village is without a Peace Officer we have asked the RCMP for enhanced patrols.
