26-Feb-2019

Top Common Clerk

Public Notice is hereby given that the Common Council of The City of Saint John intends to consider adopting a By-law respecting Closing of Roads, Streets or Highways in The City of Saint John at its regular meeting to be held in the Council Chamber on Monday, March 11, 2019.

 

The Local Governance Act (“LGA”) which repealed and replaced the Municipalities Act does not stipulate the process to be followed prior to a Council closing a public street.  The LGA simply enables a council to adopt a by-law respecting: “(p) subject to the Highway Act, (ii) the temporary and permanent opening and closing of roads, streets, and highways, ….”.  The proposed by-law assures from a legal perspective the legitimacy and effectiveness of any Council decision to close a public street or portion thereof.

 

The proposed by-law may be inspected by any interested person at the office of the Common Clerk, City Hall, 15 Market Square, Saint John, NB between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, inclusive, holidays excepted.

The proposed By-Law respecting Closing of Roads, Streets or Highways in The City of Saint John may be read in summary only if no member of Council objects.
