Public Consultation on Bylaws

Bylaws created by the Town of Okotoks are regularly reviewed and updated by Council. All bylaws require three readings by Council before they take effect. The Town encourages public feedback  on bylaws which have a significant effect on citizens of Okotoks, such as animal control or traffic bylaws.

Public Hearings

Some bylaws, especially land use bylaws, require advertising and a public hearing before Council may approve them. These are referred to as statutory public hearings. Notice of the public hearing is posted on the Town’s website and advertised in the local paper in advance of the hearing.

Public Hearings are held at the Municipal Centre, Council Chamber at 5 Elizabeth Street at 7:00 p.m. on a regularly scheduled Council meeting date. 

LEARN MORE ON HOW PUBLIC HEARINGS ARE CONDUCTED

Public feedback is welcome on bylaws. Please note that any feedback, including letters, emails, or in person, become part of the public record and may be published in a Council agenda package which is posted on the Town’s website for public viewing.
