The County of Wetaskiwin believes that its success lies with the stakeholders it serves. The County sees value in engaging the public through a variety of mediums and is committed to open, accountable, and responsive decision making, including different levels of engagement with the public.
Council recognizes that good governance includes engaging municipal stakeholders in Public Participation by:
Creating opportunities for stakeholders to engage;
Promoting sustainable decisions by recognizing various stakeholder interests;
Providing stakeholders with the appropriate information and tools to engage in meaningful participation; and
Recognizing that Public Participation for matters beyond the statutory requirements can enrich the decision making process.
Council has scheduled two public engagement sessions for September 2020 that will focus on the proposed oil & gas assessment model review, changes to the province’s police costing model, roads, and hamlet revitalization. These will occur on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at the Alder Flats Community Hall and Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at the Mulhurst Bay Community Hall.
These evenings will be broken into three sections. The first section will provide information on the new police costing model and the proposed oil & gas assessment model review, and what that means for the County of Wetaskiwin. The second section will focus on County roads and specifically the level of service related to snow clearing, dust control, and general road maintenance. The last section will focus on Council’s strategic direction to develop a hamlet revitalization plan. Feedback gathered at these engagements will be presented to Council during Strategic Planning.
The County would like to thank everyone who attended our four public engagement sessions. The open and honest conversations will provide meaningful information for Council to review at Strategic Planning.
