Kneehill County ratepayer evening returns


Ratepayers and residents of Kneehill County will have the opportunity to meet with council members, staff and administration at a ratepayer evening after a two-year hiatus.
The event has also faced rebranding, from the Kneehill County Discovery Fair to the Kneehill County Ratepayer Evening, to help clarify the intention of the evening and differentiate it from a similarly named Discovery Night hosted by the Kneehill Regional Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).
Kneehill County council had previously approved two ratepayer events in Carbon and Torrington in February 2022; however, due to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic and gathering restrictions, these events were cancelled, and the 2021 events also faced the same fate.
With restrictions relaxed, Kneehill County council were presented with the opportunity to bring back the ratepayer evening, either as a singular evening event or hosted over two evenings as originally planned, during the March 2022 council meeting.
Council voted in favour of hosting the event over two evenings using Carbon and Torrington as originally intended in 2020.
It was also agreed the event would be moved from an April date to the early summer to avoid interfering with seeding or the fall harvest.
A total of $15,000 was included in the 2022 budget for the ratepayer evening events.
