Acting Mayor Schedule

Council is required to assign a member of Council to act in place of the Mayor when the Mayor is absent or otherwise unable to act, as per the Community Charter.

Part 3 of Council’s Procedure Bylaw assigns Acting Mayor designation on a monthly rotating basis, in alphabetical order by surname, commencing the first month of Council’s term following a local general election.

Each Councillor designated must fulfill the responsibilities of the Mayor in his absence. If both the Mayor and designated Acting Mayor are absent from a Council meeting, the members present must choose the next Council member in the acting rotation to preside. In addition to providing support in the Mayor’s absence, the Acting Mayor chairs all Committee of the Whole meetings.
