With another year as councillors under their belts, Rimbey town councillors are moving forward.

During their organization meeting held Oct. 23, councillors made some changes and kept other meeting dates and town appointed positions status quo.

Councillors agreed to hold committee of the whole meetings every second month, unless otherwise deemed necessary.

“What is the true purpose of committee of the whole meetings?” questioned Coun. Matthew Jaycox.

“They are set up to discuss issues, not meant to replace council meetings, said CAO Lucien Cloutier. “They are to allow council a chance to flesh out issues such as snow removal.”

Council agreed additional meetings could be held if the issues involved at the time warranted more discussion.

Council set the date for committee of the whole meetings to be at 9 a.m. on the last Friday of every second month.

Council meetings will continue to be held the second and fourth Monday of the month commencing at 7 p.m., excepting if a regularly scheduled meetings falls on a statutory holiday.

When such a holiday occurs the meeting will be moved to the Wednesday of the same week.

Council will hold only one regular meeting in July and August on the fourth Monday of the month and only one meeting in December on the second Monday of the month.

Also at its organizational meeting, council agreed to go with Seniuk & Company as its appointed auditors and Don Sheridan of Municipal Property Consultants Services as its assessor.
