District of Port Edward works towards strategic planning for 2019
It has been a busy few months for the District of Port Edward council, with a number of items on the horizon for delivery in 2019.
In the District Update for December, newly elected Mayor Knut Bjorndal relayed some of the areas where the District Council was focused on, the first was their work on a Strategic Planning session, the results of which will be delivered to the public in the Spring when they have the financial information that is required to complete it.
They are currently working on a Dog Park for the community, as well as clearing land that the District owns and is up for sale.
They have also had an engineering firm come to the District to evaluate and inspect the water plant to ensure it is operating at an optimum level, with a report expected to be reviewed in the coming weeks.
They also had meetings scheduled with CN Rail to discuss the ongoing concerns about train whistles in the community, with the District set to deliver a report to the community on the outcome of those discussion.
As he settles into his work in the Mayor's Chair, Mr. Bjorndal has also committed to delivering a monthly message for residents to keep them informed on what they have been focused on.
The next public session for the Port Edward District Council is January 9th.
More notes on events and concerns in the community can be found from their December update.
