Dear Citizen of Lower Kootenay First Nation
This is your opportunity to help shape the Lower Kootenay Band Constitution. The Constitution will be the Supreme Law for your First Nation. The draft Constitution was developed over the past few months by a Constitution Committee. Following the Committee review, the Constitution was reviewed by Chief and Council and is now ready for review and comment by all Lower Kootenay Band Citizens over 16 years of age. Additionally, workers will visit citizens living in the Creston area.
Please download (see link below) and review the draft Constitution and provide comments to a Constitution Committee member or a Chief and Council member. Their contact information is included with the Constitution. Please send comments or questions by March 31, 2014 to ensure your input is considered.
After 6 months all input will be reviewed by the Constitution Committee and Chief and Council and decisions made on what amendments are needed. Finally, the completed Constitution will be sent back out to all eligible Voters for Ratification.
