This is the last issue of the Bay Ward Bulletin that will be published until after the October 24 Municipal Elections. A 60-day “blackout period” will be in effect from August 25, 2022 as described in the Election-Related Resources Policy (ERRP) to October 24, 2022 (Voting Day) inclusive. The Election-Related Blackout Period Procedures address restrictions during this 60-day period. In establishing the blackout period, Subsection 5(1) of the ERRP states: “In a municipal election year or in the event of a by-election, City resources including Members’ Constituency Budgets are not to be used to sponsor any advertisements, flyers, newsletters, householder and other communications with ward constituents for the 60-day period prior to and including Voting Day. General prohibitions and restrictions also apply during this period to the holding of events by Members, event-related activities, and other uses of City resources, as described in the Election-Related Blackout Period Procedures.” Please note that my office remains open to help with any resident inquiries or concerns.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe remainder to your summer and best of luck to students who are just starting or going back to school in September!
