Take notice that the Council of the Town of Yarmouth will hold public hearings regarding the following matters:

1. Amend Bylaw 6.11 Election Signs Bylaw
This hearing addresses a motion that council amend Bylaw 6.11, Election Signs Bylaw, found within the Town's Land Use Bylaw. The proposed change is to ban the placement of elections signs on public property while permitting election signs on private property. This would ensure a provision within the Town's bylaws that signs cannot be posted on public land. A copy of 6.11 Election Signs Bylaw can be found here (contained within the Land Use Bylaw): https://www.townofyarmouth.ca/665-land-use-by-law-3/file.html

2. Amend Civic Addressing Bylaw
