County of Paintearth ratepayer request shut down

Correction (Jan. 27 at 11:38 a.m.): The Review reported an error regarding the County of Paintearth Jan. 12 meeting agenda item 7.A. A Request from Ratepayer for Reimbursement was retracted at the request of the ratepayer and therefore was not discussed at the meeting. The Review apologizes for this error.

Nomination deposit bylaw

The Nomination Deposit Bylaw is a bylaw that governs the process of nominees, submission of paperwork and more for the upcoming municipal election.

The nomination period began on Jan. 1 as new rules were enacted by Municipal Affairs.

The bylaw was given all three readings after administration shared that a sentence had been missed previously.

The addition of allowing debit and credit card payments for the 2021 general election year has now been included.

Missed change

Council passed two motions.

The first was to correct a small error in calculations for the Provincial Education Requisition Credit (PERC) application in the amount of $2.33 and the other was to write off three tax roll accounts in the amount of $57,109.46 and apply the PERC for $8,682.43.

Brownfield Recreation Centre donation

Council was notified of a grant cheque given to the Brownfield Recreation Centre for $1,250 from the Battle River Community Foundation.

It was awarded from the David Creasy Memorial Fund and will be used toward future recreational programming.

About the author

Terri Huxley

Terri grew up on a grain farm near Drumheller, Alberta with an eye for the beautiful and uncharted. Living in such a unique and diverse area has helped her become the photographer and reporter she is today.

Coming from the East Central region getting this newspaper on her dinner table growing up, it helped her understand the community she now serves.

In May 2019, Terri was awarded Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association (AWNA) Canada's Energy Citizens Photographic Awards Sports Action – First Place as well as first for the same sports action image nationally with the Canadian Community Newspaper Association (CCNA). Fast forward to 2020, she has won second in the same category for the AWNA.
