Municipal Law

Municipal government is arguably the most important level of government we have in Canada. It is, in fact, the level of government closest to the electorate and it is the most accountable and amenable to influence and change. Andrew Montgomery has had considerable experience advising municipal governments at all levels e,g, villages, towns, districts and counties. This advice covers all planning related matters, municipal governance, the conduct of council and commission meetings and business, municipal labour and employment, public procurement, municipal conflict of interest and municipal finance.

Many municipal units in Nova Scotia today are discouraged from seeking timely, regular legal counsel due to high costs and shrinking budgets.  ANM Legal Services  is committed to providing timely and more affordable legal advice to municipal governments so such advice can be available in the most cost effective way and at the most opportune time.
