WHEREAS the provisions for the establishment of a municipal district under The Municipalities Act do not allow for a
portion of a rural municipality to form a municipal district and requires that a municipal district contains at least one
former rural municipality and one former urban municipality in their entirety.
WHEREAS organized hamlets located adjacent to lakes have unique governance interests from the rural municipality.
Establishing provisions for the formation of a lake district that may include portions of a former rural municipality,
organized hamlet, unorganized hamlet, and/or urban municipality will provide a legislative governance framework to
satisfy these unique interests and foster collaboration.
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Ministry of Government Relations to amend The Municipalities Act to allow for
the establishment of a Lake District.
