Council Notes
From the regular meeting of January 25, 2016

During opening remarks, Mayor Terry Yemen spoke about the signing of a new contract for a vendor at the Badlands Community Facility. They will be selling healthy alternatives to sandwiches and smoothies.
Council had their first reading to adopt bylaws to rezone the old St. Anthony's play ground for a new residential subdivision. A public meeting attended by over 35 residents was held January 21 and received favorable comments. Lots will be 45' in width allowing homes of approximately 1200 sq. ft. Architectural controls will be in place.
The Business License mandatory Bylaw that charged a 2% fee to travellers using the valley hotels and motels has been removed. Travel Drumheller received this 2% to fund their operations and will now have to look at other sources of revenue in order to exist. Several delegates from Travel Drumheller attended the Council meeting and Marketing Advisory Committee chair Carrie Lunde advised Council that she had received verbal support from the hotels/motels to have a voluntary system. Lunde was advised by Council to obtain written contracts now that the bylaw is no longer in place.
The Strategic Business Plan 2016 was presented by CAO Ray Romanetz and was approved by Council.
Council awarded a three year contract to David Meeres to supply the Janitorial Services at the Badlands Community Facility.
