Youngstown council held a special meeting on Wed. Dec. 23 to tidy up any last minute items needing to be addressed before the new year arrived.
One item on the go was the suggestion of buying a locally supplied tablet and laptop for administration and public works to use for village business.
With the new wave of video conferencing usage for meetings, administration has found their outdated computer to not have a video camera so personal laptops have been used at home instead.
Under the Municipal Operation Support Transfer (MOST) grant offered by the provincial government, Youngstown has chosen to move ahead on purchasing a laptop from Bowerstone PC for $1,200 and a tablet from Reality Bytes for $2,409, both from Hanna.
Warranty has been added as well.
The Emergency Management bylaw and Regional Emergency Management were passed.
As well, a motion was made and passed to sign a Fire Dispatch Agreement with the City of Red Deer.
Lastly, a motion to participate in an application for the Palliser Regional Service Enhancement Project with PRMS was conducted and passed.
