Policies and Bylaws

Policies

Wheatland County has a number of policies which outline how the County conducts its business, actions and services.

Policies

Bylaws

Wheatland County Bylaws are set by County Council, and are unique to this municipality.

Section 7 of the Municipal Government Act (MGA) sets out the general jurisdiction to pass bylaws. Council may pass a bylaw to govern the affairs within the council (the procedural bylaw) and bylaws that govern within the municipality.

A municipal by-law is no different than any other law of the land, and can be enforced with penalties; challenged in court; and must comply with higher levels of law. Municipal bylaws are often enforceable through the public justice system, and offenders can be charged with a criminal offence for breach of a bylaw.
