What is a Bylaw?
A bylaw is a law created by the local government, in our case The Town of Wadena, to meet the needs of citizens and resolve issues. Bylaws apply within the town limits. In Saskatchewan, a local government's powers and duties are given to them by the Province of Saskatchewan under The Municipalities Act, including the power to enact bylaws.
The Town may create bylaws for a municipal purpose in relation to those matters listed in The Municipalities Act. Matters include:
- Public safety
- Citizen health and welfare
- Protection of private and public property
- Nuisances and unsightly premises
- Public places
- Business activities
- Services provided by the Town
