Drumheller Town Council
Regular Council Meeting
Monday, January 8, 2018
Mayor Heather Colberg called the meeting to order at 4:32 p.m.
MLA Rick Strankman formally introduced himself to council. He explained the new boundary lines for the constituency will be quite large compared to the previous one. He also explained his top priority for Drumheller involved flood mitigation. He believes Drumheller needed more publicity during the flood of 2013 compared to the flood of 2005. With this publicity, he hopes to raise awareness to current government, potentially setting more work in motion for a new mitigation system.
The 2018 Strategic Business Plan represents the work done in November 2017. An amendment was made where the Flood Mitigation was listed as number one the list of priorities it was moved to number five on the list. Council adopted the plan as represented.
Safety Policy C-01-18 was reviewed. The purpose of the policy is for council to commit, understand and recognize the level of safety the Town of Drumheller works under. Council made the decision to adopt the safety policy as presented.
Barb Miller, Director of Corporate Services, went over the 2018 Service Fees Discussion. She mentioned the most noticeable part of the document will be a 2 per cent increase on the cemetery and recreation fees.
Mayor Heather Colberg brought the live streaming of council meetings to attention. She asked if council wished to add Committee of the Whole meetings to the times of livestreaming. The topic was tabled to the next meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:06 p.m.
