New Council policies are developed to support and communicate The City of Calgary priorities, respond to social/economic/political changes, and to introduce new initiatives, programs, and services. The City of Calgary Council, any Standing Policy Committee, the City Manager, and General Managers may initiate new Council policies at anytime for consideration by Council.
Council policies are amended to ensure alignment with current Council priorities, initiatives, and practices, as well as with legislation and regulations.
Council policies are rescinded when they become out of date and are no longer required. Council policies may also be rescinded when an existing Council policy has been replaced by a new Council policy.
