Residents and property owners in the Town of Stellarton are advised that the Town of Stellarton will hold a public consultation meeting to consider the current number of town councilors and the existing number of municipal polling districts in the Town.
The Town of Stellarton is required, under Section 369 of the Municipal Government Act, to conduct a review of its polling districts every eight (8) years. The current review is taking place this year in preparation for the next municipal election in 2024. The public consultation is scheduled for Monday, June 13, 2022 at 5:00pm, in the Council chambers, located on the second floor of the Town Hall (250 Foord Street).

Following the meeting, Town Council can then submit a recommendation to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.
The public is encouraged to read the preliminary report and provide feedback. If anyone is unable to attend the public consultation meeting in person, they can drop off a letter at the Town Hall, 250 Foord Street, email their comments to , or by regular mail at:
