Town council has been brought to task for taking an issue in-camera which a Rimbey resident said should have been public.

Gayle Rondeel, who attended Wednesday’s council meeting questioned council as to why they went in-camera at a previous meeting regarding town owned land.

CAO Lucien Cloutier confirmed the land in question is owned by the town.

“It’s industrial land in the northeast corner of the municipality near the recycling centre. There is a party that has expressed an interest in it, at this point, there’s an active negotiation going on. At this particular point we cannot disclose the nature of the potential developer,” he said. “The party that we’re having discussions with has as explicitly requested negotiations proceed in confidence.”

Land, labor and legal matters need to be discussed in-camera according to the municipal government act, he said.
