Mayor and council are pleased to announce the members of the Economic Task Force steering committee.
The Economic Task Force was created by Mayor and Council as an additional resource to the Economic Development Advisory Committee and Council. The task force will be a think tank responsible for inventive and innovative recommendations that will assist Council in determining strategies for growing the local economy. “It proves we live in an amazing community, where people want to help make Drumheller a better place to live and do business. We were so fortunate to have so many strong candidates apply,” exclaimed Mayor Heather Colberg “I am looking forward to an amazing 2018.”
The Task Force is expected to provide advice to Council on business retention, investment attraction (both existing expansion and new business), and encouraging entrepreneurship.
After a successful recruitment process, 43 members of the public applied to the Task Force, seven of which have been appointed to the steering committee. These people are; in alphabetical order:
Blair Christianson
John Goudy
Trevor Gough
Tony Ibrahim
Ken Schinnour
Bob Sheddy
Kim Suntjens
There will be a meeting before the end of December for the Steering committee to get organized. In the New Year sub committees will be created. The steering committee will be reaching out to the other applicants to get involved.
