Impound yard at discussion state only

Rumours that council is going to build its own impound yard at the public works yard may be unfounded.

Rumours that council is going to build its own impound yard at the public works yard may be unfounded.

“It’s not even on my radar,” said interim CAO Donna Tona. “To date there has been no decision and no direction given to administration.”

The issue was brought up during an open mike ses- sion at the April 13 meeting by Rimbey resident Helen Coers.

“Have the RCMP been contacted?” she questioned. “Has there been any discussion?” Tona noted the RCMP do

keep some of their equipment there and there have been some initial talks about fencing the property for security, but nothing has been determined.

“It would be another rev- enue source for the town of Rimbey,” said Mayor Rick Pankiw.

“The matter was discussed at a committee of the whole meeting,” Tona said, later. “That is the purpose of the committee of the whole meetings; simply to discuss issues. The purpose of administration is to look at all systems and processes within the town. When and if we go ahead, the proper business protocol will be discussing it with the current business provider, Ed Rondeel to get his expertise and input.”

The minutes of the meeting, which are posted on-line, state Coun. Jack Webb suggested that the town could increase revenue by having its own impound yard.

In the January minutes, Sgt. Koller indicated there is a need for an impound yard. He noted he has recently had two 30-day vehicle seizures and he has had difficulty finding an impound lot when needed.
