Council to spruce up town for spring

Council agree to spend dollars on beautification

Sprucing up Rimbey and making the town look bright and fresh as winter slowly releases its grip on Alberta and spring takes over is a priority for the Town of Rimbey.

At its Tuesday meeting, council discussed ways they planned to do their part to ensure the face of Rimbey is as bright and shiny as possible.

While council has decided not to opt into the Communities In Bloom project, they plan to spearhead their own beautification projects.

Councillors Lana Curle and Gayle Rondeel have met with Rimbey Lions Club and agreed to partner with them when they undertake the town’s cleanup in the spring.

Mayor Rick Pankiw agreed to accompany the councillors to determine what was needed in town to help spruce it up.

The cost of the needed materials will be discussed during budget deliberations.
