Since the inception of Savary Shores Improvement District in 1980, the District has issued over 100 bylaws. Some have been repealed, some superseded, some amended, and some must be rewritten every year.
The most important 4 bylaws affecting property owners are: the Water Use Bylaw 102 which outlines the responsibilities of the District and the property owners, the Excess Water Toll Bylaw 120 which sets a price per cubic metre of water use that is greater than the 100 cubic metre allotment of the previous year, the Assessment Bylaw 126, which determines how tax classes will be defined for the year, and the 2019 Taxation Bylaw 125, which specifies the tax amounts payable for the different assessments in 2019. The 2020 Taxation Bylaw has been written and is waiting for registration by the Provincial government before the end of March 2020.
The SSID Transfer of Water Service Contract Charge Bylaw 127 was adopted October 22, 2019, and is applicable to new owners of properties already connected to the SSID water system.
The Drinking Water Protection bylaw that was in development in 2018 has been put on hold.
