A tri-party agreement between Rimoka, the town of Rimbey and developer Stan Cummings came up for questioning at the Monday council meeting.

Earl Giebelhaus, who was in the gallery, asked council about the agreement regarding the proposed new lodge.

Under the terms of the agreement, he said he wanted clarification that the anticipated $340,000 cost of the road construction was to be shared by the town, Rimoka and the developer with the developer paying $200,000.

Giebelhaus wanted council to clarify if the invoice had been paid.

However, council agreed they would have violated their council’s procedures bylaw by answering this question as it did not pertain to the agenda of the council meeting.

“We are not prepared for answering questions (such as that) in an open meeting,” said Coun. Paul Payson.

“I respect council’s decision,” said Mayor Rick Pankiw.

Acting CAO Donna Tona said the question needs to be put in writing and sent to administration.

“The question was out of order.”
