Drumheller Town Council
Regular Council Meeting
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Council passed a motion to change the April 24 Committee of the Whole Meeting to a Special Council Meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to approve the town’s Audited Financial Statements.
Council was audience to a delegation by Dr. Rithesh Ram. He presented a survey he commissioned on health care in Drumheller and introduced his project of the Riverside Clinic. Construction is underway and he has a long-term goal of bringing 5 to 9 new physicians to the valley over time. His goal is to create a “Patient’s Medical Home” and the clinic will have a pharmacy operated by Ray Ainscough of Riverside Value Drug Mart. The clinic is also looking at offering evening hours.
Director of Infrastructure Services Darryl Drohomerski provided Council an update on the Aquaplex renovations. He says to expect crews to be on site at the beginning of May. The plan is to open the outdoor pool by May 15, depending on weather, to prepare for the bulk of the shutdown, allowing residents to swim over the summer. A temporary men’s locker room will be opened during the construction.
Council agreed to a motion to allow Dino Donuts to place their trailer on the South East corner of Rotary Park to operate this season. This comes after the site the vendor occupied last season is no longer available due to the construction for the Aquaplex.
