2016 Year End Message from Reeve Daryl Watt:
Another New Year is upon us! Thank you to all our staff, ratepayers, partners and my fellow Councillors for another successful year. This year, we welcomed new councillor Lonnie Wolgien to Division 4. Lonnie comes to Council with a strong Agriculture background both from an industry perspective and as a producer. Lonnie is well-acquainted with roads and infrastructure across the County.
Council continues to work with municipal, regional, and provincial colleagues, as well as our local community and industry partners on projects and initiatives that will enhance communications and growth. Our focus on sustainability, while accommodating growth helps us to build stronger communities. Working together to strengthen our region’s position continues to be a priority. We are constantly looking for regional opportunities that can create efficiencies, cost-savings and be a positive benefit to the region as a whole.
As an organization, we strive to be open and accessible to all ratepayers. Our documents, bylaws, forms, minutes, agendas and so forth are available online on our website or by direct request from the main office. Council meetings are open to attendance by the public should anyone want to observe.
A few highlights of the County’s activities in 2016 include:
Our Council is committed to providing our ratepayers and stakeholders with high quality service levels balanced with fiscal responsibility. We are motivated to be open, transparent and accountable to our citizens while ensuring that our municipality remains
“A sustainable, vibrant and diversified community with opportunities for all”.
