Town Council highlights from February 24, 2020
Council reduces lot prices in Fox View Subdivision
In 2017, the Town developed 15 residential lots in Fox View Subdivision. The lots were appraised, and the sale prices for all lots were set in February 2018. There has been no sales activity for those lots, and the real estate conditions have deteriorated since listing. To attract interest to the area, the Town felt it necessary to reduce the lot prices to reflect market conditions more accurately.
Council agrees to continue providing payroll services to the Vegreville Regional Museum for 2020
Following Council's decision to discontinue the Vegreville Regional Museum's funding in 2020, the Museum requested that the Town continues to provide payroll services for their organization. The Town will continue to provide these services to the Museum Society employee(s) in 2020, up to a maximum of $15,000.
Town to create Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Advisor term contract position
The Fire Services and Safety Manager is an approved position in the Organizational Structure of the Town. This position is included and funded in the Town's 2020 Operating Budget. Discussions were held with Council and Senior Management in January and February 2020, regarding the Fire Services and Safety Manager position. In February 2020, Town Council separated the Fire Services and Safety Services regarding this position resulting in the approval of the Fire Chief as a 0.5 FTE paid position being responsible for the Fire Services portion. The OH&S Advisor would oversee the administration and implementation of the Town's Occupational Health & Safety Management System.
The next Council meeting will be on March 23, 2020.
