What Are Bylaws?
A bylaw is a rule or law established by an organization or local government to both regulate itself and the people it serves. Bylaws can be enacted for various reasons, to establish a set of commonly adhered to policies or rules, to detail a service to be provided, or to outline a process or regulation.
In general, bylaws are enacted and fall into one of the following categories:
- Establishing a service
- Authorizing the imposition of rates and levies to pay for services
- Regulating persons or their property for the general public good
- Regulating processes or procedural matters related to the governance or administration within the local government
