Sanitary Conditions Law amendments enacted


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke would like to inform the community that amendments to the Sanitary Conditions Law were officially accepted and enacted at today’s Council meeting without objection. The amendments deal directly with demolition waste management, allowing for further legislation to be developed to deal specifically with those issues. Other areas of the law were not affected by this process. 

The Sanitary Conditions Law amendments were enacted using the Kahnawà:ke Community Decision Process designated as a “Type 2” law (those that are regulatory in nature). No objections to the actual proposed amendments were raised in either of the two 30-day Reviews or the two official Readings.

“It’s historic, it’s the first piece of legislation to make it through the Community Decision Making Process,” said KLCC Coordinator Kahente Horn-Miller. “It proves that we, as a community, have the ability and the power to make our own laws and hopefully more people will be encouraged to participate and be part of the legislative making future of our community.”
