Recent Changes to the Bylaw

Council recently consulted on some changes to the Speed Limits Bylaw 2005.  The changes made our Bylaw consistent with new legislation and other speed limit bylaws in Northland, without changing any current posted speed limits or the enforcement of speed limits.  We also renamed the Bylaw to Speed Limits Bylaw 2019. 

The Decisions and Recommendations Report for this change can be viewed by following the link below:
