Council grants request

A request by Rimbey Elementary School to use the Peter Lougheed Community Centre’s main auditorium for three days

A request by Rimbey Elementary School to use the Peter Lougheed Community Centre’s main auditorium for three days free of charge for their annual school Christmas concert has received the thumbs up from town council.

At its regular meeting, Mon., June 9, council unanimously gave the go-ahead.

“The RES Christmas Concert is a well-attended school event; with our gym being too small to accommodate the community members who attend,” said principal Jodi Bramfield, in a letter to council. “The staff, students and parents of RES would appreciate a donation to cover the evenings of Ec. 16 and 17.”

Although council complied with the request, the former director of community services Peter Stenstrom told the school it does fall outside the time frame covered under the joint use agreement and overlaps with community programming timeslots in the evening.

He suggested Bramfield write a letter to council regarding the request.

The letter was included in the council package and Councillors agreed the elementary school was being pro-active in making its request several months in advance.
