Council clarifies equipment policy

An earlier motion by council to limit access to Town equipment by volunteers resulted in a resident not being permitted to use the Townís hoses to flood the outdoor ice rink.

An earlier motion by council to limit access to Town equipment by volunteers resulted in a resident not being permitted to use the Townís hoses to flood the outdoor ice rink.

Councillor Larry Martin made it clear that this was not the intention, and moved to allow the resident, and anyone designated by him, access to the hose while flooding the rink. It was later clarified that Town employees lay the base for the ice, a volunteer resident maintains the surface and when scraping is necessary it is done by the Town.

After a late start due to warm weather the rink is now available for use.

Martin received permission to attend the provincial Economic Development annual general meeting and conference in Kananaskis, April 11 to 13.

The estimated cost of $1,925.25 for Martinís attendance will be taken from the legislative portion of the Townís general budget.

It will now cost $5 for residents and campers to use the sewage dump in the park. Overnight camping fees for serviced sites will drop to $23 per night from $25. It is hoped the user fee will enable the Town to better control what is being put into the system. It has not yet been determined whose responsibility it will be to collect the fee. A coupon system is being explored.

Chief Administrative Officer Alvin Melton reported the Town is proceeding with obtaining quotes to repair Old Smoky, the local icon that was damaged by vandals earlier this winter, and will continue to work with the RCMP on restitution or charges for the vandalism.

Staff will presents quotes for an audio-visual system for the purpose of taping meetings and for other Town uses at the next meeting.

The next meeting of Irricana council is Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. in council chambers. The public is welcome.
