This is to service notice that the Council of the Town of Yarmouth, at its meeting on Thursday, April 8th, 2021, at 7:30 pm, approved the following...
1. Repeal of Curfew Bylaw
The recommendation for repeal was brought to the Police Advisory Committee by the Staff Sergeant (Municipal RCMP) on the grounds that the bylaw could be deemed contrary to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, namely, section 6-9, inclusive. More details on the recommendation for repeal, including the letter from the Staff Sergeant, can be found in the minutes for the March 11th council meeting at townofyarmouth.ca/agenda-and-minutes.html
2. Repeal of Officers Bylaw
Council approved the repeal of this bylaw as recommended by the CAO. The Officers Bylaw dates back to 1983 and had relevance during a time when town council essentially performed the duties of the CAO. It contains outdated directives and references positions that no longer exist, making it a candidate for repeal.
3. Sale of South Centennial School
A public hearing is required when a property is being sold to a not-for-profit below market value, and the subject property is valued at higher than $10,000. The Boys & Girls Club (bgc Yarmouth) made a presentation to council detailing its plans to use the former school for the delivery of their community programming while also maintaining the right to incorporate other institutional uses. The proposal was well-received and council unanimously passed a motion to enter into a purchase of sale agreement with bgc Yarmouth.
