Stagger Urban Municipal Terms of Office

Year: 2014

Resolution

Whereas urban councils in Saskatchewan communities may become completely vacant and change entirely in membership in the same year; and Whereas this situation does not ensure some form of continuity of knowledge and experience on these councils; and Whereas this can be disruptive to both the governance and operations of a community; Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association promote the concept that the elected terms of office for urban councillors be staggered, similar to rural municipalities, to promote good governance and ensure continuity of knowledge and experience on urban councils.
