An online public consultation session to discuss the Alternate Approval Process for the establishment of the Electoral Area E Library Financial Aid Service Bylaw.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) will seek approval of the electors within Electoral Area E to establish the Electoral Area E Library Financial Aid Service Bylaw. If adopted, the bylaw will establish a financial aid service in Electoral Area E for the purpose of funding the Nelson Public Library. Approval will be sought through the Alternative Approval Process (AAP).

Currently, residents of Electoral Area E are required to pay a subscription fee of $90 per family or $45 per individual for a Nelson Public Library membership. If the new bylaw is approved, residents of Electoral Area E will receive free membership like residents of the City of Nelson, Electoral Area F, and defined portions of Electoral Area H.

Under Section 86 of the Community Charter, eligible electors within the service area who are opposed to the new bylaw may petition against the adoption by signing an Electoral Response Form. At least 10% of electors must petition against the proposal prior to 4:30pm on September 5, 2022. Electors who support the proposal should not sign the form.
