By-Laws

Looking for a bylaw?  Here's some things you should know:

All of the original bylaws have been signed.  Most of the bylaws you will find here are not scanned copies of the signed originals, but digital reproductions.  However, we never post bylaws on our website until they have received 3rd reading by Council, and been signed by the Mayor and the Town Manager.  So, any bylaw that's posted on our website is a current and valid bylaw.

All bylaws are subject to amendments.  We make every attempt to keep our bylaws current and timely for our residents to research, but if you wish to ensure that you have all of the available bylaws and amendments applicable to any topic, please contact us.

All Town of Black Diamond bylaws are numbered in the same fashion.  We use a YR-## format.  The first 2 digits indicate the year the bylaw was passed.  The last digits indicate the chronological order in which the bylaw was researched and then prepared for Council's deliberation.
