Municipal Council

A municipality is a corporation of the residents of its area and the governing body of a municipality is its Council. Village of Kaslo  Council is composed of a Mayor and four (4) Councillors who hold office for a four (4) year term. The Mayor is head of Council, and as noted in Section 116 of the Community Charter, is the Chief Executive Officer of the Village of Kaslo.

Council is a legislative (law-making) body with the responsibility for exercising virtually all legislative and administrative authority conveyed upon the Village of Kaslo by the Province through the Community Charter, the Local Government Act and other statutes. Together, the Mayor and Councilors are ultimately responsible for establishing the policies of the Village, for the carrying out of those policies, and for the general administration of civic business.
