PLEBISCITE QUESTIONS WITH BY-ELECTION
What is a plebiscite?
A direct vote by eligible voters to express an opinion for or against a proposal. These questions are Council's way to gage the public's level of interest, and the results of these questions are not binding on Council.
Over the course of Council's term (and beyond), there has been numerous requests on both sides of both issues. With the upcoming by-election required to fill vacancies, Council has decided to take the opportunity to engage the public as much as possible for their actual opinion.
Refer to the January 24 Council Meetings for the motions on these 2 questions https://reginabeach.ca/council-agendas-minutes
Currently the Town does not have any bylaws in regard to Golf Carts or ATV's meaning neither are allowed on Town streets and the rules follow Provincial Regulations and are enforceable by the RCMP.
