Feb 13, 2024 | 0 comments

The following are highlights from the Monday, February 12, 2024 Regular Meeting of Town Council.


Traffic Bylaw – Excessive Vehicle Noise

At the January 22, 2024 Regular Meeting of Council, Administration proposed updating the Town’s Traffic Bylaw to include provisions regarding excessive vehicle noise. After discussion, Council carried motions giving the updated bylaw first and second readings but could not give third and final reading since the vote was not unanimous. On Feb. 12, the bylaw received third and final reading.

Alberta Municipalities – Resolution Information

Previously, Council had discussed potential resolutions to be presented for consideration by Alberta Municipalities. At the Feb. 12 Council Meeting, Administration presented information from Alberta Municipalities regarding their recommendations for preparing resolutions. Council discussed demand-side management and models for selling power into the grid as potential areas of focus for a resolution, and then carried a motion accepting Administration’s report as information.

Groundwater Monitoring – Dodd’s Lake, Former Landfill

In 2023, Envirowest Engineering began monitoring Town-owned land near Dodds Lake and at the site of the former landfill. Administration provided Council with a report on the results at the Feb. 12 Meeting, suggesting that monitoring continue at both locations. Council then carried a motion to accept the report as information.

Aquatic Centre Fundraising

In 2023, Council directed Administration to research the possibilities of utilizing a consultant to plan a fundraising campaign for a proposed recreation facility. Administration has gathered information and on Feb. 12 provided Council with a report on the project’s phases and associated costs. Council then carried a motion accepting the report as information, and carried a second motion directing Administration to coordinate further strategic meetings about the facility.

Carbon Credit Sale Contract – Solar Offset

The Town has installed solar panels on many Town-owned facilities. Administration is now recommending that the Town enter into a contract to quantify, validate and market the credits for a ten-year term with a 25% commission rate. After receiving Administration’s report, Council carried the recommended motion at the February 12 Council Meeting.

Residential Listings – Napoleon Meadows Lots

On January 15, 2024, Council directed Administration to issue a request for quotation (RFQ) for real estate services for the remaining lots in Napoleon Meadows. After completing the RFQ process, Administration provided Council with the submitted quotations. At the Feb. 12 Meeting, Council carried a motion awarding the listing to Coldwell Banker/OnTrack Realty (Susan Jamieson and Leslie DeRuyter) for a period of 12-months.

Diversity Magazines – Diversity Award Nomination

Diversity Magazine is hosting the Diversity Awards this April and has contacted the Town asking for nominations. On Feb. 12, Council fulfilled the request and carried a motion to nominate the Town of Innisfail.


Innisfail Town Council strives to maintain a level of openness with its residents. The highlights only briefly touch upon the exchanges and decisions reached during the most recent Council meeting.
