Roles & Responsibilities Council is the governing body of the municipal corporation of the Town of Nanton. Nanton’s Council consists of six Councillors and one Mayor. These positions are elected for a four-year term, beginning 2014.
The principle role of the council is to create policy for the governance of the town and its residents. The forum for local government policy making is the Regular Council Meeting. The Council relies on input from many sources, including the public, various community organizations, citizen’s groups, advisory committees and staff. It is the Council’s responsibility to consider the merits of each idea before proceeding with its decision. In doing so, Council members analyze community needs, program alternatives, and available resources.
