Just read the Unapproved Council Minutes of last Tuesday and some business here really got my attention.
Chief Administrative Officer’s Report
The Chief Administrative Officer advised that a reception will be held with Riversdale Resources in February 2013, and will ensure an invitation is extended to business and community leadership. An agenda for the event will be provided for Council’s review at the January 22, 2013 Council or Governance and Priorities Committee Meeting.
Comment #1: I was under the impression Riversdale execs. were meeting with the general public at large in the community and not just with a select chosen few?… can’t wait for my invite.
Councillor Gallant excused himself from the meeting at 8:02 pm due to pecuniary interests.
The Director of Finance and Corporate Services confirmed any changes to Bylaw 862, 2013
would have to be presented to Council for approval.
• A fee for showers only at the Crowsnest Pass Swimming Pool will be added to the Bylaw
• Suggested that the Maps section requires further clarification, including definitions added in
reference to the size of maps requested
M#-6737-13: Councillor Mitchell moved to defer First Reading of Bylaw 862, 2013 to the
January 22, 2013 Council Meeting.
Councillor Brian Gallant returned to the meeting at 8:07 pm.
Comment #2: Where exactly does Gallant have a pecuniary interest here? The swimming pool? Mapping?
Diamond Jubilee Medal Award – Albert Headrick
Myron Thompson, Chief Administrative Officer, reviewed a written report in reference to acknowledging
and congratulating Albert Headrick as the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
On behalf of Council Mayor Decoux expressed congratulations and a thank you to Mr. Albert Headrick.
The Chief Administrative Officer advised that a reception will be hosted for local recipients of the Queen
Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Comment #3: I don’t understand this one at all as Mr. Headrick has only been in the community a few months? This does have all the earmarks of ‘politics’ at play here, now doesn’t it?
I was born at night, but not last night.
