A municipality is a corporation of the residents of its area and the governing body of a municipality is its Council. Village of Port Alice Council is composed of a Mayor and four (4) Councillors who hold office for a four (4) year term. The Mayor is head of Council, and as noted in Section 116 of the Community Charter, is the Chief Executive Officer of the Village of Port Alice.
Council is a legislative (law-making) body with the responsibility for exercising virtually all legislative and administrative authority conveyed upon the Village of Port Alice by the Province through the Community Charter, the Local Government Act and other statutes. Together, the Mayor and Councillors are ultimately responsible for establishing the policies of the Village of Port Alice, for the carrying out of those policies, and for the general administration of civic business.
As well, Council members are appointed as liaison and committee members to various committees and local organizations.
If you wish to make a presentation to Council you may submit a Delegation Request Form (see Important Links) or let Council know how you feel about an issue. You can email Mayor and Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
