Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the Fall weather. I’m going to try formatting this week’s post a bit differently as I learn how best to utilize our new Agenda software. I will include a link to the main Agenda Report for each of the items on the agenda this week. These reports have the proposed recommendations as well as some background on the issue being discussed. For additional background (e.g. reports, related documents), you will need to click on the Full Meeting Agenda and click on the links beneath each of the agenda items. So, here’s what on tap this week…
This past week I was in Oakville for a Board Meeting of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. It was a good opportunity to connect with my municipal colleagues from across the country to discuss priorities for the coming year. As a result of being away, this post is a bit later than usual, my apologies.
This week, St. Albert City Council will be switching to new Agenda software for managing our meetings. The previous system, which had been custom designed for St. Albert is no longer supported, and therefore a new system was needed. I suspect there will be a few bumps along the way, but hopefully it will be a relatively smooth transition. The new system makes it harder to link to individual items in their entirety, so here is a link to the Agenda which contains all of the relevant information. Now here’s a look at the Agenda for Tuesday’s meeting:
For the past three years, I have been preparing these summaries that highlight what will be on the Agenda for the coming week’s Council Meeting. As a reminder, you can click on the name of the item to view the full Agenda Report for each topic. If you have any feedback regarding the topics on the agenda, please don’t hesitate to leave a question or comment.
I hope everyone has had a great summer. On Monday, we will have our first City Council meeting in a few weeks. Here’s a look at what will be on the Agenda:
Monday will be our final Council meeting prior to our summer break. Council will reconvene on August 22, 2016. We’ve packed a lot into this final meeting. Here’s a quick look at what is on the proposed Agenda:
I hope everyone enjoyed an excellent Canada Day weekend. A big thank you is owed to all of the volunteers around St. Albert who made so many great activities available to our community! Now, here’s a look at what is on the Agenda for Monday’s Council meeting:
Council has three meetings remaining before we take our summer break. Here’s a look at what is on the Agenda for Monday’s meeting:
This past weekend showcased so much of the best of St. Albert: Relay for Life, St. Albert Pride BBQ, Father’s Day Soapbox Derby, National Aboriginal Day celebrations, Food Trucks at the Grain Elevators and so many other events. Thank you to all of the volunteers who make these events possible!
Just back from Winnipeg where I was honoured to be re-elected by my peers to the Board of Directors of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. As several of us were at the FCM Conference, this week’s Council meeting will be taking place on Tuesday instead of the usual Monday. Here’s a look at what will be on the Agenda:
