Meet Your Council

North Dumfries Township Council consists of 1 Mayor, elected at-large across the entire Township, and 4 Councillors representing 4 wards. The Mayor is the head of Council and the spokesperson for the Township on municipal and political matters. The Mayor is also the Township representative on Regional Council. The Mayor and 4 Councillors are elected to serve a 4-year term.  The next municipal election is scheduled for October 2018.

Through a mandate given to Township Council by the voting majority at election time, Council provides general direction
to the municipal corporation through its policy decisions. These decisions are the 'policy tone' that drive service levels, property taxes to name a few. The Township Council is a legislative body that, among other things, establish and interpret bylaws, establishes planning guidelines for the Township, and approves operating and capital budgets.

With the new structure of Township Council (reduced from 6 Councillors to 4 in 2000), the demands and workload
of each Councillor is significant. The Mayor and Council are always receptive to your input and comments, and your attendance at Committee or Council is welcome.
