Strategic visioning sessions

Council passed a motion to hire a consultant for up to $30,000, paid for out of municipal reserves, to facilitate a strategic planning session and economic visioning for Crowsnest Pass. Six to seven sessions will be held starting at the beginning of September. The Crowsnest Pass Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures, the municipal Economic Development Committee and other relevant groups will be invited to attend.

Budget season

For many of us, fall is just around the corner. But for the municipality and Council, it’s budget season.

For the first time, Council is considering seeking resident feedback on the budget. If approved, once the draft budget is complete, it will be shared publicly and residents will receive a targetted survey through their utility bills. The purpose is for Council to receive additional feedback and guide the budget deliberations. Council will be approving the budget timetable at a later meeting.
