SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING

by Village of Bawlf on 06/11/14

THURSDAY JUNE 12, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

AGENDA  --  BUDGET

Hello Friends and Neighbors! April 2014

by Village of Bawlf on 04/22/14

Spring is not far off now.  We survived a few nights of near -40 and now look forward to the new season.

I am sorry I was not at the Library meeting to meet some of you there.  It was a surprise for Bruce but he has brought back your concerns.  I want to thank all who did attend and take the time to speak with him.  Please continue engaging with your Council.  We are here to listen and do our best to help you but we need your input.  You can trust us to first be fiscally responsible and then plan to fit it all together to keep Bawlf viable.   That brings up the statements about high taxes – Bawlf is on the low end of tax levels throughout our region and we will do our best to keep it that way.  It is a difficult task to keep projects and finances balanced.  I will address this in more detail later as space is limited here today.

I have contacted CDSS in regard to the request for senior’s transportation and you will soon hear of more opportunities to be involved with that concern.  A bus and driver is a very expensive option.  One, more cost effective solution, is to have our neighbors and friends offer rides when it is convenient for them to help out.  If you are interested in helping or getting more information please contact John Tessari or Clarence Hastings for now until we get a better idea of the possibilities.

I apologize for drainage being an ongoing issue.  As I have mentioned earlier we will be addressing that and moving forward with solutions as soon as weather and soil conditions are favorable.  Anyone coming forward with specific requests or solutions will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your support. 

Sincerely:   Mayor John Tessari, Council and Staff

 

Hello Friends and Neighbors! March 2014

by Village of Bawlf on 04/18/14

It is only two weeks since we greeted you last but we had our first Council meetings with our new staff and council members February 13.  Our regular meeting was rescheduled to coincide with our organizational meeting which is required within two weeks of an election.   We appreciated having a resident visit us and spend some time after the meeting to become better acquainted with Council and our views.   Impromptu discussions are greatly appreciated but if a request for decision is to be acted upon please help us and yourselves to be prepared for more formal discussions by asking to be placed on the agenda.

We have the new land title for the curling rink subdivision complete and passed a motion to offer the property for sale by tender.

With our garbage and recycle contract expired as of February 1, 2014.  A motion was passed to invite all interested parties to tender an offer to supply these services.  Until this process is complete we continue with our current collection company and current schedules.  Curbside pick-up will continue until further notice.

A discussion in regard to Recognition of Residents brought forth a few more thoughts.  Council asked to have a letter drafted to the Bawlf Lions Club and we invite any service club, Church or individual interested in helping to contact the Village office or the Lions Club to participate in this venture.

Mayor John Tessari attended two meetings since our January Council meeting.

First was the Shirley McClellen Regional Water Services Commission meeting in Stettler, January 22, 2014.  Completion of the water supply line to Bawlf is tentatively slated for 2019 at which time we will be required to have all service entries monitored with water meters.  That may not be as worrisome as some of you may think.  Some places already connected have experienced lower consumption than expected.

The next meeting was the Municipal Elected Officials Session for the Municipal Government Act Review February 7, 2014 in Edmonton.  It was a very well planned meeting and many items were identified as areas of concern needing additions, changes or deletions to the current legislation.

We are sorry for the inconvenience of the water system being shut off last week.  A valve was found to be under a considerable layer of ice so could not be accessed easily.  The repair on Jamieson Street was completed successfully and service returned later in the afternoon.

Discussions were started to focus our new council and administration on drainage issues in the Village.  Affected residents will be contacted and work is intended to commence after the snow is gone and the frost is out.

Thank you to everyone offering feedback.  We appreciate your time and willingness to speak out.

 

Sincerely;

Your Village of Bawlf Council; Mayor John Tessari, Deputy Mayor Leonard Thompson and

Councillors; Ryan Mohan, Bruce Wells and David Genio
