Waste Reduction Week in Canada – October 19-25, 2020

Columbarium Purchase – Innisfail Cemetery

Current columbaria at the Innisfail Cemetery are reaching capacity and Administration identified the need for the purchase of a new, additional 64-niche structure. Council approved the purchase of the feature in early 2021 with funds from the cemetery reserve.

 

Park Donation & Memorial Program Policy 2020-003

Public Space Maintenance Policy 2020-005

Council approved the proposed Public Space Maintenance Policy which replaces and consolidates a number of existing Town policies.

Parkland Regional Library Budget

Council approved the 2021 Parkland Regional Library Budget which contained no increase to the municipality per capita requisition.

Government of Alberta Municipal Stimulus Program

Council gave Administration direction to include the 53 Avenue infrastructure improvements and a mill & overlay project in the Town’s application for the province’s Municipal Stimulus Program.
