Council Clips – September 27, 2022

At the Sept. 27, 2022, Committee of the Whole meeting, Council heard:

  • An evaluation of The Adventure Club, a pilot program this past summer offered by the Family Connection Centre as a child development outdoor play program that also served as a short-term childcare alternative
  • A debrief on the wildfire emergency preparedness exercise held last June to test and practice our emergency plans and build relationships necessary for any large-scale emergency response

  • The 2021 annual report from Canmore Museum
  • The current operations of the BVSPCA (Bow Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) including plans for the remainder of 2022

  • Municipal Enforcement statistics from the first half of the year including investigations, warnings, tickets, and speeding infractions
  • Statistics from Canmore Fire-Rescue including annual call volumes
  • Councillor and administrative updates
