Parking changes not considered

Dear Editor:

The Nov. 30 story, “Bylaw officer is cracking down on parking” regarding angle parking in Rimbey, may have been taken out of context by readers, and resulted in some unnecessary concerns.

On Nov. 22, Rimbey’s part-time bylaw enforcement officer, Joe Croken, submitted his report to council. Mr. Croken made a number of suggestions and council took them under advisement.

In regards to Mr. Croken’s report, the council, has not, and is not, considering any initiative to change the current parking scheme within the town. The Town of Rimbey has limited parking, among many other issues, and we welcome suggestions on how to improve our community.

Council meetings are open to the public on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month starting at 6:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. All suggestions will be listened to respectfully. Not all will be acted upon.

Coun. Joe Anglin
