Potential change to council meetings

Turner Valley residents can expect some changes to the community’s council meetings this year.
The Town’s monthly committee of the whole meetings may take place during the day rather than evenings to better accommodate administration and council members’ schedules, according to Mayor Kelly Tuck.
She expects council to make a decision about when the meetings will be held during its regular meeting this month.
“After our planning session we will start looking at doing our committee of the whole meetings during the day and council meetings still at night at 6:30 p.m.,” she said.
Tuck said council and administration are testing the idea by holding this month’s committee of the whole meeting on Jan. 13 at 9:30 a.m. in the Flare ‘n’ Derrick Community Hall. She said the Sheep River Library, where council normally meets, was not available.
In addition to a possible time change, Tuck expects the regular council and committee of the whole meetings to no longer take place in the Sheep River Library as early as next month.
The Town purchased an Atco trailer last fall to add on to the municipal building to allow for the addition of a meeting room for council and public events. Tuck hopes it will be ready sometime next month.
Regular council meetings for Turner Valley will continue to be held the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
