Town Council highlights from the November 25 meeting
The Town will continue to work CN to ensure rail crossings meet regulations
The Town received a letter from Sean Finn, Executive Vice-President of Corporate Services for CN, regarding Grade Crossing Regulations and how they pertain to rail crossings in Vegreville. Mr. Finn also advised the Town that they will be reaching out to our Public Works department to discuss the matter further. Council accepted the letter as information.
Council approved a revision to Policy HR – 4001 to align with changes to Provincial legislation
The Provincial Government recently passed Bill 2- An Act to Make Alberta Open for Business, which included changes to the requirements for Banked Overtime. Under the new legislation, employers may allow employees to bank overtime at a rate of 1 hour banked for each hour of overtime worked as part of a written overtime agreement between the employer and the employees. This is substantially different than previous legislation that required 1.5 hours to be banked for each hour of overtime worked.
Council passes Bylaw No. 14 – 2019, Assessment of Designated Manufactured Homes in a Manufactured Community
Starting January 1st, 2021, owners of a manufactured home community shall be the assessed person recorded on the assessment roll in respect of a designated manufactured home on a site in a manufactured home community, and any other improvements located on the site and owned or occupied by the person occupying the designated manufactured home. For purposes of identifying the assessed person, the owner of a manufactured home community shall be the person(s) listed as the owner(s) on the Certificate of Title for the parcel of land constituting the manufactured home community.
