Stirling town council’s regular meeting began with a slew of people council wanted to recognize for their contributions to the town and other areas.
Fred Romeril and Christina Romeril were recognized for installing a little free library on their property, where it’s customary to leave a book when you take a book and is invaluable to sharing knowledge.
For Settler Days, council extended its gratitude to the plethora of volunteers, sponsors and community partners that made the event possible.
“Administration would like to recognize the work of all the Community Events Committee, volunteers, Stirling Public Works and fire department, Lethbridge 20th Independent Field Battery, Stirling Historical Society, and our various sponsors for putting together a fun and activity filled Stirling Settlers Days. Without these dedicated people we wouldn’t be able to host events of this magnitude.”
The fire department was thanked again for all the work they’ve been doing over the summer, from providing services to the Lethbridge Airshow, and the Town of Coaldale during their firework show.
Three delegations arrived at council; Cody Webster from Fortis, Zach Morrison from FCSS (Family and Community Support Services), and Abe Caldwell from Utility Easement. The first two delegations were accepted as information, while the third with Caldwell had a resolution.
Council approved entering into a utility easement agreement for access to the fish pond water line as directed by the Director of Operations and with the approval of the Raymond Irrigation District — with Caldwell paying any associated cost. The motion was carried.
