Minister plans to meet with municipalities

The Town of Stettler received an email from Minister of Municipal Affairs Danielle Larivee informing municipalities that she will be at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association Convention in October and requested that anyone wishing to meet with her forward a request to the minister.

According to Assistant CAO Steve Gerlitz, council motioned at the July 19 meeting to send in a request for a meeting time.

Updated bylaw

Cemetery Bylaw 2085-16 got an update after remaining unchanged for several years.
Changes include updated definitions of burial permits, markers and monuments, decorations and proper receptacles. The associated costs of plots are also under review. The bylaw received first reading.

Tax recovery

Only two properties have landed on the tax recovery public auction list. Council set the auction date for mid October.

One house valued at $143,980 and one manufactured home valued at $16,920 will go to auction to recover outstanding taxes unless the taxes are paid prior to the sale date.
