Steel Wheel Stampede
Unfinished business arising from April’s council meeting included further discussion concerning the Steel Wheel Stampede committee’s request for support for their annual rodeo.
While debating the merits of sponsoring the Stettler Stampede, Councillor Dave Grover reminded council of the other rodeos in the area and questioned if council would sponsor the Steel Wheel and not other community rodeos within the county.
The motion to award $7,000 to sponsor the Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede was defeated.
