History

Although the Act to Incorporate the Town of Bedford was not assented to until December 28, 1979, the Council of the Town of Bedford started to perform their duties of office effective November 14, 1979. According to the Towns Act, the Council exercised all jurisdiction, power and authority which, but for the incorporation of the town, might have been exercised by the municipal council of the County of Halifax. Council consisted of the mayor and six councillors, all elected at large (no wards) for a term of three years. Quorum at Town Council was four members, including the Chair. Meetings were called by the Mayor as often as he or she deemed necessary. Special meetings could be called upon the request of three members of Council. Emergency meetings could be called by the Mayor on short notice when necessary, but no business could be transacted at these meetings save the business indicated by the notice of the meeting. The Mayor presided as Chairman for all meetings, or the Deputy Mayor or some other member chosen, if the Mayor was absent. In Bedford, the Chairman had a right to vote. In the event of a tied vote, the motion was deemed to have been lost. The last meeting of Council was held March 29, 1996; the Town was amalgamated into Halifax Regional Municipality on April 1, 1996.
