Further to the October 3, 2019 public update, Mayor Smylie met with Municipal Affairs Minister Madu and MLA Getson on October 16, 2019 to discuss governance options and the input garnered through the Strategic Planning process, meetings with Parkland County Council and the petition that was received September 17, 2019. Attached below you will find the recent correspondence from Minister Madu regarding restructuring options for Wabamun along with the Minister’s decision to hold a Viability Review. While this letter will be on the agenda for the November 19, 2019 meeting of Village Council we wanted to take the opportunity to share it with our residents in advance.
“Wabamun Council appreciates the Minister’s decision to expedite the process. In order to provide good governance, Council feels that it is important that we explore all options available to us to help Wabamun grow and prosper well in to the future. The viability review process will help to involve our residents in the process and inform citizens of all relevant facts and options. It will also allow our residents to make an informed decision about the future of our community.”
-Mayor Charlene Smylie
