Grassy Mountain Coal Project letter of support

Council passed a motion to provide a Letter of Support for the Grassy Mountain Coal Project.

“To anyone that thinks we don’t need this mine, I invite them to come to the next few days of budget discussions,” said Councillor Dean Ward, alluding to the upcoming 2018 budget deliberations and fiscal difficulties of the municipality.

Budget

Annual budget deliberations were in full swing this past week.

Council reviewed their Category 1 and Category 2 funding requests. Council voted on which fund requests to approve and for how much, but changes can still be made as operational budget discussions progress throughout the month of December.

According to the Community Funding and Support Policy, fund requests that fall into Category 1 include those submitted by organizations that provide the Municipality with an operational service. In this category, Council received requests from groups like Crow Snow Riders, United Riders of Crowsnest Pass and the Bellevue Underground Mine.

"Category 2 Requests" are associated with organizations that coordinate and offer annual events/activities to the general public within the Municipality. In this category, Council received requests from groups like the Crowsnest Pass Chamber of Commerce, the Kananaskis Rodeo Association and the Coleman Community Society.

Council also heard presentations from municipal committees and boards. Representatives from each of the boards provided updates on their operations, their recent achievements and their goals for the upcoming year.

Budget discussions continue this week.
