Quote of the Week
“If a fire of the magnitude of the Lost Creek fire of 2003 were to happen now, it would be hard to bring resources to it.”
- Tully Clifford  
   
   

 

 
Bylaw enforcement report
Councillor Siegbert Gail moved that Council direct Administration to provide a quarterly report to Council on bylaw enforcement activities within the community, and that the media also be made aware of such information.
The motion was passed unanimously.

SRD correspondence
Councillor Emile Saindon moved that Council direct Administration to draft a letter to Alberta Sustainable Resource Development Minister Mel Knight, requesting that the Municipality be included as a stakeholder in all issues relating to Atlas Road.
Councillor Brian Gallant originally brought forth the issue at the May 10th GPC meeting.
“We (currently) don’t have direct stake in what happens with the road,” said Councillor Gallant. “We want to be brought to the table for discussions.”
The motion was approved unanimously.

Policies and Procedures review
Councillor Andrew Saje moved that Council direct Administration to ensure that an ongoing review of policies and procedures occur within each municipal department, such that each department benefits from such a review, not less than once in each five year period.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Three year budget

Mayor Bruce Decoux moved that Administration review the concept of a three-year budget process and report back to Council through the Policy Committee.
“It’s an excellent move,” said Mayor Decoux. “It’s the way of the future.”
The motion was passed unanimously.
  Blairmore Liquor Store signage
Councillor Larry Mitchell moved to approve the request from the Blairmore Liquor Store for placement of a portable sign in front of its building on 20th Avenue.
The motion was passed unanimously.

Slave Lake donation
The Town of Nanton issued a challenge to all Alberta communities last week, asking that they donate anything they can to the town of Slave Lake, roughly one-third of which was destroyed by wildfire last week.
Councillor Brian Gallant noted that he and his wife plan to make a personal donation once they identify the appropriate charity to send the funds to, and Councillor Larry Mitchell noted that he and his wife plan to donate clothing.
Mayor Bruce Decoux said he felt it was premature to make a donation as of May 17th, as the fire was still burning and the full extent of damage and need would not be determined until more time had passed.
He moved to defer the matter to the May 24th GPC meeting for further discussion, so that Council can determine the needs of the community and how best any funds can be allocated.
The motion was passed unanimously.
Anyone interested in making a personal donation is encouraged to do so through monetary donation to the Canadian Red Cross on their website at www.redcross.ca, by phone at 1-800-418-1111, or by contacting the nearest Red Cross office.
