Yorkton Council gave unanimous approval to second and third readings on amendments to the City’s Traffic Bylaw.
The proposed amendments were introduced and given first reading at the regular meeting of Council Oct. 29.
“At that meeting, Council authorized Administration to give Public Notice. As such, Public Notice was given permitting the public to review the Bylaw and express their concerns or opinions with the Bylaw content by either providing a written submission or attending the Public Hearing which was held earlier in the meeting. As of the date of this report, no written submissions were received,” explained Nicole Baptist, Assistant City Clerk with the City Monday.
Having received no feedback from the public, Administration wishes to move forward with the proposed amendments.
The Traffic Bylaw No. 18/2016 came into effect in February 2017, which involved numerous changes from the previous Traffic Bylaw of 2000, explained Baptist, at the Oct. 29 meeting.
So updates are on occasion needed to address small things, said Baptist.
“Administration has completed a review of the Traffic Bylaw and identified some amendments to improve the clarity and address small clerical errors in the Bylaw. None of the proposed amendments look to change the intent of the Bylaw, merely to improve clarity,” she said then.
