The new Rossland council has started the process of putting to rest a bylaw that got the municipality into so much trouble.
The now infamous delegation bylaw is set for the scrap heap. It saw an earlier council give sweeping powers to then CAO Victor Kumar before he retired.
New mayor Kathy Moore says too much power in the CAO’s hands is what contributed to a lack of oversight on certain projects.That cost taxpayers money and led to the the difficulties Rossland got into a few years back.
A new bylaw putting most decision-making back in council’s hands is expected to be on Rossland’s books by the summer.
