Boissevain-Morton Council

Boissevain-Morton Council is the governing body for Municipality of Boissevain-Morton which was officially formed in 2015 from the amalgamation of the former Town of Boissevain and Rural Municipality of Morton. The council deals with matters requiring policy direction, by-laws or by-law amendments, response or actions to pertinent issues.

The nine council members are elected by residents and ratepayers of the municipality for a four-year term of office. The Mayor as head of council is elected at-large by the entire municipal electorate. Four councillors are elected within the Boissevain and Morton wards—representing the territory of the former Town and RM respectively—for a total of 8 councillors.

Council meetings are regularly held twice a month at the Civic Center at 420 South Railway Street in Boissevain.

The next election will be held on Wednesday, October 24th, 2018.
