Notices found on this page were previously required to be advertised in a local newspaper, in accordance with section 606 of the Municipal Government Act (MGA).
Although they may additionally be advertised through other channels, including the Western Wheel, the Town is now required to provide our citizens with the necessary information on our website. Such items might include Public Hearings, Municipal Elections, bylaws or resolutions requiring Public Hearings or other items required by the MGA or other statutes.
