The City of Lacombe new council recently elected will be holding its first meeting tonight at 5pm in council chambers at City Hall. I really look forward to working with the new members of council and trust that we will have a good working relationship!
Our first order of business is to have an “Organizational Meeting” which include the swearing in of the Mayor and the councillors, setting of dates of all council meetings for the next year, to ensure proper signing authority and ratify appointments made to the Boards Committees and Commissions that we all are responsible for to council. I will announce my appointments after ratification.
Tonight’s regular meeting will cover topics such as the bylaw change for the Lacombe Library board to ensure it’s bylaws conform to minor standard changes as set out by the provincial government, discussion around a new energy retailer for Lacombe, review of a resolution coming from the City of Lacombe to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (conference in November) regarding additional support from the provincial government for the Student Resource Officer in our schools and the beginning of budget deliberations for 2014.
Sound like fun? Sure it is! I look forward to the meeting tonight!
