Public notice is hereby given that the Board of Directors for the Strathcona Regional District may proceed with final passage and adoption of Bylaw No. 457, being Oyster River Flood Protection Service Establishing Bylaw 2022, at its meeting of Wednesday, July 13, 2022 unless at least 10% of the eligible electors within the proposed service area submit elector response forms not later than 4:30 p.m. on July 4, 2022.
Bylaw No. 457 would establish a service for funding the operation and maintenance of flood protection infrastructure within the proposed service area.
The number of eligible electors within the boundaries of the proposed Oyster River flood protection service area has been fairly determined to be 797 and the number of valid elector response forms required to prevent the adoption of Bylaw No. 457 without first obtaining the assent of the electors by voting is 80.
