The municipality is completing the first comprehensive review and update of County by-laws and policies since amalgamation in 1998. The Clerk’s Office is leading the process.

The municipality is interested in finding efficiencies and ensuring regulation in a manner that is a good fit for Prince Edward County's size, capacity and social/economic character.

The Clerk's Office undertook an initial review with assistance from the consulting firm Diverse Systems Group. With input from residents and businesses, the review provided recommendations and identified opportunities to improve the quality of decision making, minimize risk for the municipality, and help staff, residents, and businesses better understand and navigate municipal services and operational functions.

County staff are now in the process of incrementally updating all by-laws and policies. During the process, there may be opportunities for the public to offer further input and feedback. See related projects at right.
