Council Notes - November 19th, 2019

Utility Bill Due Date Changes. Council has given first reading to Bylaw 2238, amending the Edson Utility Rate Bylaw 2114 to adjust the utility bill payment due date from the 15th of each month to the 25th of each month. The change allows a better scheduling for meter reads, allows better monitoring of well production vs water usage, provides a more consistent billing for utility customers, and provides some assistance to landlords, timing the bills to better coincide with normal move in/move out dates.

Highway Commercial District Changes. First reading was given to Bylaw 2239, amending the Land Use Bylaw to add “Medical Clinic” as a discretionary use to the C-3 Highway Commercial District. A Public Hearing has been set for January 7th, 2020 at the regularly scheduled Council Meeting.

December Meetings. The December 17, 2019 Council Meeting and the December 24, 2019 Committee of the Whole Meeting have both been cancelled due to the Holiday Season.

Surplus Fire Command Vehicle. Council has directed Administration to keep the Edson Fire Department’s 2009 Ford Expedition for sale for 6 months. If the vehicle fails to sell, alternate options for the vehicle will be considered at that time.

Next meetings - The next Committee of the Whole Meeting is scheduled for November 26th, 2019 at 7:00 pm in Council Chambers. The next Council Meeting is scheduled for December 3rd, 2019 at 7:00 pm
