Council instructed administration to begin a ‘trial period’ for an enhanced internet service through Telus at their April 8 regular council meeting following a lively discussion.
Administration is to advise council as to the degree of satisfaction for the service to the village over that trial period.
Council also agreed to renew the contract with Wild Rose Assessments.
The contract is for 10 years and will cost the village the same rate for the first three years with slight annual increases through year’s four to 10.
Building a stronger relationship with the businesses serving Delburne was discussed by council. One idea suggested would be to host a Business Owner’s Appreciation event in the fall of 2019.
Coun. Tim Wilson told council that his mantra has always been ‘your success is our success!’
It is hoped that this mantra will encourage closer relationships among the business community.
The Delburne Centralized School sent a request to close a street for its annual Soap Box Derby which attracts a large number of schools to compete. Administration will request further clarification from the school.
