Council Highlights – September 25, 2023

Sep 26, 2023 | 0 comments

The following are highlights from the Monday, September 25, 2023 Regular Meeting of Town Council.


Delegation: Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 104

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 104 (Innisfail) proposed a banner program to recognize veterans. The program would require the Town’s participation by providing the location, hardware, and service to install the banners provided by the Legion. After hearing the presentation, Council carried a motion to support the Legion’s proposed project in the capacity requested.

Mutual Aid Agreements

The Town historically has had mutual aid agreements with emergency services departments from other municipalities. At the September 25 Council Meeting, Administration presented a draft agreement that would see the Town move into formal agreements with other regional emergency service providers. Council then carried a motion to approve the signing of Mutual Aid Agreements with the Sylvan Lake, Penhold and Olds Fire Departments.

Renewable Power Moratorium – Alberta Municipalities (AM) Emergent Resolution

At a previous meeting, a motion was carried directing Administration to prepare a draft Emergent Resolution for the upcoming AM Convention. At the September 18, 2023 Agenda & Priorities Meeting, Council discussed the potential content of the proposed resolution and determined it was not prudent to proceed. At the Sept. 25, 2023 meeting, a motion was carried directing Administration to cease the development of the AM Renewable Power Moratorium Emergent Resolution.

Vehicle for Hire Bylaw 1714-2023

Administration, after receiving direction from Council at an earlier meeting, presented updates to the Town’s current Taxi Bylaw. On September 25, 2023, Council reviewed the proposed bylaw – which repeals and replaces the Taxi Bylaw – and made one amendment. Council then carried motions giving the new bylaw all required readings.

Rates and Fees Bylaw Amendment

With the passing of the Town’s new Vehicle for Hire Bylaw, changes were required to the Town’s existing Rates & Fees Bylaw. On September 25, Council reviewed the proposed changes to the bylaw and gave the amendments all required readings.

Contract for Assessment Services

By law, the Town is required to appoint a qualified individual to “carry out the functions, duties and powers of a municipal assessor”. After the required request for proposal process was complete, Administration reviewed the sole bid submitted. On September 25, Council carried one motion awarding the Assessment Services Contract to Wild Rose Assessment Services from October 1, 2023 to September 30, 2028 in the amount of $80,220 for each year, and then carried a second motion appointing Wild Rose Assessment Services as the Town of Innisfail’s Municipal Assessor for 2023 to 2028.


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.
