At the March 4th, 2019 Council meeting, Council gave Bylaw #01-2019 second reading.
The purpose of this Bylaw is to establish the Legal Municipal Library Board to oversee the public library system within the Town of Legal in accordance with the provisions of the Libraries Act.
This report analyzes the operating spending of 182 municipalities across Alberta from 2006 to 2016. Alberta's largest municipalities (i.e. with populations of 1,000 residents or more) are ranked. Additionally, all of Alberta's 182 municipal governments are organized according to municipal spending and revenue.
Each municipality was given an overall provincial ranking based onits spending, where #1 is the best performing municipality, and #182 is the worst. The rankings are based on growth in real operating spending per capita from 2006 to 2016. The complete provincial rankings are included in Appendix C. Legal is ranked #26 out of 182.

The Government of Canada has introduced legislation to legalize cannabis. There will be new federal, provincial and municipal processes for cannabis production, sale and consumption.
The legalization of cannabis will have many impacts. The Town of Legal is reviewing federal and provincial direction and legislation as it becomes available to help manage the legalization of cannabis in the best interest of our community.
The Town of Legal thanks everyone who participated in completing the Legalization of Cannabis and Land Use Survey.
