Mayor’s Report to Council
In February, the Mayor attended a First Nations – Municipal Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI) meeting.
The report listed a number of sub-committee updates, including information from the waterline and wastewater infrastructure subcommittee, joint regional emergency plan sub-committee, multi-use centre, and community and High Level updates.
Mackenzie House Seniors Complex Tour
In January, the Town CAO attended a Mackenzie House Seniors Complex tour of the construction site and included two suites that have been nearly completed to this point. There will be more opportunities for individuals to view the facility once the area is safe to enter. If everything remains on schedule, the first residents could be moving in by the end of June this year.
Deputy Mayor Langford attended the Northern Alberta Elected Leaders meeting last month. Intermunicipal Collaborative Framework and Intermunicipal Development Plans need to be in place by April 1. Some rural areas are struggling due to provincial budgeting and some oil and gas companies refusing or being unable to pay their taxes.
Coun. Morgan attended a Municipal Library Board meeting in January, and reported that work is ongoing to find a way to provide improved levels of service to residents who live in Mackenzie County. Currently, residents in the County are able to access the High Level library but are unable to borrow items from the Peace Regional Library System.
