Emergency Management Plan for the Municipality
Under the Municipal Government Act that came into effect in December of 2017, municipalities are required to put in place an Emergency Management Plan. As part of this plan, council needs to take stock of what resources and skills we have within available within North Wiltshire. Some of the resources that we need to account for are the following: snowmobile owners, ATV owners, Buses, heavy equipment owners/operators, generator owners, construction contractors, plumbers, electricians, amateur radio operators, doctors, nurses, first aid providers, veterinarians, clergy, volunteer organizations, clubs and any others that would be available to call upon for assistance in event of an emergency. If you would be willing to provide use of any of these resources or skills please let us know by calling our CAO at 902-621-2170 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also indicate this as part of the resident survey.
Municipal Government Act
In December of 2017 the Province of Prince Edward Island passed and enacted the new Municipal Government Act. This meant a variety of changes to the way that small municipalities are run. For more information on what these changes you can access information at https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/fisheries-and-communities/municipal-government-act-and-regulations
Gas Tax Funding
The Rural Municipality of North Wiltshire Council has recently signed on to the Gas Tax Funding Program available in partnership from the Federal and Provincial Governments. Between 2019 and 2024, North Wiltshire will receive approximately $28,600 for qualifying, approved projects in the community. Council is exploring a couple of options for use of the funding. Please consult the resident survey and let us know how you would like to see the funds spent.
