The District of Invermere is governed by an elected Council comprised of a Mayor and four Councillors. Councillors are elected for four-year terms and each member of Council represents the municipality at large. The Community Charter gives Council the authority to set budgets, levy taxes, and establish policies to guide the growth, development and operation of the municipality for the benefit and protection of its citizens.
The powers of the Mayor and Council are exercised through the adoption of resolutions or the enacting of bylaws at regularly scheduled Council meetings. The rules governing the conduct of the meeting are outlined in the Council Procedure Bylaw and Robert’s Rules of Order.
Regular Council Meetings: The District of Invermere Council meets regularly throughout the year on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Office (914 – 8th Avenue, Invermere).
Members of the public are welcome to attend the open meetings of Council. The public can address Council at these meetings if arrangements to do so are made ahead of time.
