Town Hall in Golden

Town Council

The Town of Golden is governed by an elected Council comprised of a Mayor and six Councillors. Councillors are elected for four-year terms and each member represents the town at large.

In British Columbia, the Community Charter and the Local Government Act grant the elected Council the authority to establish policies to guide the growth, development and operation of the town, set budgets, and levy taxes to provide services. Council delegates administrative responsibility to the Chief Administrative Officer who oversees corporate operations.

The Community Charter

The Community Charter establishes the basic structure and manner of operation for municipal councils. For example, the Community Charter addresses municipal purposes and powers, public participation, council accountability, municipal procedures, bylaw enforcement and related matters, and government regulations.

The Local Government Act

The Local Government Act addresses boundary expansions and amalgamations, elections, land use regulations, and Regional Districts.

The authorities and responsibilities of municipalities in British Columbia are regulated through the Local Government Act of British Columbia and the Community Charter.

Municipal governments operate within these powers given to them by the Province. Municipal authority is found partly in the legislation and laws from the province, including the Community Charter and the Local Government Act.
