Rimbey updates fees and services bylaw

Increased user and service fees were recently added to the Town of Rimbey’s fees and services bylaw.

Increased user and service fees were recently added to the Town of Rimbey’s fees and services bylaw.

“We hadn’t updated it in a long time. We had certain land use stuff we were doing that had no fees attributed to it,” said interim CAO Donna Tona.

Tona says the town and administration are not looking to go crazy with the update. “(We’re) just kind of catching up to the21st Century.”

Development fees were also updated and the changes now make any future handling of the bylaw more efficient. If the fee schedule needs changing it can now be done with council’s approval through resolution, rather than repealing the bylaw, says Tona.

Before any changes were made eight to 12 other communities in the region were looked at to see how and what their bylaws are set at.

Tona says Rimbey’s bylaw now falls in line with others in the region.
