79.8. Not later than 15 days before a public meeting is held, the secretary shall publish in a newspaper circulated in the territory of every municipality whose territory the draft by-law concerns a notice of the date, time and place and the purpose of the meeting, and the secretary shall have a copy of the notice posted in the office of every municipality whose territory is situated within the territory concerned.
The notice must include a summary of the draft by-law.
Every meeting concerns all the local municipal territories concerned, unless meetings are planned in all those territories, or unless the council of the regional county municipality, in its decision under the first paragraph of section 79.7, specifically identified the local municipal territories that each meeting concerns, so as to ensure that no territory is overlooked.
If all the meetings concern all the local municipal territories concerned, the secretary may give a single notice for all of them not later than 15 days before the first meeting is held.
If the council of the regional county municipality so chooses, the summary, rather than being included in the notice provided for in the first paragraph, may be mailed or distributed to every address in the territory concerned not later than 15 days before the first or only meeting is held. In that case, a notice of the date, time and place and the purpose of every meeting planned shall be enclosed with the summary.
Every notice must mention that a copy of the draft by-law and of the summary may be consulted at the office of the regional county municipality and, if applicable, at the office of every municipality whose territory is concerned.
