As I mentioned in last week’s post, we do continue on with our regular Council meetings during our Budget deliberations, of which we are about halfway through. A couple of highlights from Thursday’s meeting included approving funding for the Healing Garden which will recognize our community’s history with Residential Schools and allocating funding to ensure that the Art Gallery will be fully accessible to all residents. Budget deliberations will resume on Tuesday at 2 p.m.. In the meantime, here’s a look at what is on the Agenda for Monday’s meeting:
Because one Council meeting is never enough, this week features two meetings! The first will be our annual Organizational Meeting. This is a requirement of the Municipal Government Act and is when we set the meeting schedule for the coming year as well as approve our Committee assignments. The second meeting is our regular meeting and here’s what we’ll be discussing:
Would you believe that as of today, we are exactly one year away from the next Municipal Election? It certainly has been an interesting three years so far! Here’s a look at what we’ll be discussing at Monday’s City Council Meeting:
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.
