The Local Services Board of Round Lake is requesting a Boundary Alteration.
Bill or Act:
Northern Services Boards Act (NSBA)
Summary of Proposal:
The LSB wishes to alter its boundary so that Fire Protection and Emergency Telecommunications services can be provided to properties currently not within the geographic boundaries of the LSB.
The LSB currently has the power to provide Fire Protection and Emergency Telecommunications services.
Late in the 2014-2015 fiscal year it became evident to the LSB that they had been providing services to inhabitants who did not live within the LSB geographic boundaries.
The Boundary Alteration request if approved would bring the LSB into compliance with the NSBA in providing Fire Protection and Emergency Telecommunications services to inhabitants within the LSB geographic boundaries.
Information meetings were held on February 25, 2016 and May 16, 2016. A vote meeting, which included current LSB inhabitants and inhabitants of the proposed area, was held on July 16, 2016 and the result was unanimous in favour of the proposal for the Boundary Alteration.
The boundary area of the LSB would be slightly larger than the current geographic area.
