Mayor lays out goals for new year
The construction of a community facility will be the priority of Drumheller Town Council moving into the new year, says Mayor Bryce Nimmo.
The Mayor made himself available to members of Drumheller’s media on Wednesday, January 15 to outline some of the struggles and accomplishments of the previous year, and to map out a course going into 2009. High on the list of accomplishments, and priorities moving forward is a community facility.
Last year the town conducted a survey along with a census. This survey revealed support for developing recreation facilities. A successful plebiscite signaled the town could move forward on planning and building a facility.
“The survey indicated it is important for our citizens, and secondly, it is at a time that more than likely when we get our funding in place, and decide what we would like in the facility, there is a good chance we could build that facility for less that we thought we could,” said Nimmo. “It appears the slowdown in the economy is helping a lot for projects that were getting out of line because of costs.”
