A bylaw is defined as a rule or law by an organization or community to regulate itself, as allowed or provided for by some higher authority. A local council or municipal government gets its power to pass laws through a law of the national or regional government which specifies what things the town or city may regulate through bylaws. It is therefore a form of delegated legislation.

In Arcola, bylaws must be read three (3) times and then passed by Council. Certain bylaws must be sent in to other government agencies to be approved before they can be passed by the Arcola Council. For example, the building bylaw must be approved by Buildings Standards of Canada and the water and sewer rates bylaw must be approved by the Saskatchewan Municipal Board.
