In order to ensure that your elector response form is counted as valid please note the following:
Following the response deadline the Regional District’s corporate officer must determine and certify whether or not assent of the electors has been obtained.
If the number of valid responses meets or exceeds the required minimum number the Regional District must seek elector assent by voting before it may proceed with the bylaw or other matter which was the subject of the AAP.
If the number of valid responses is less than the required minimum number the Regional District is deemed to have received assent of the electors and may proceed with the bylaw or other matter which was the subject of the AAP.
Elector response forms received after the deadline will not be considered in the official count.
Further information regarding the Alternate Approval Process may be obtained by contacting the General Manager of Legislative and Corporate Services (250) 960-4400 or email@example.com.
