Council Clips – November 15, 2022
At today’s Committee of the Whole meeting, Council heard:
- an update on the Cougar Creek Debris Retention Structure - the project is currently partially complete, with completion currently scheduled for early 2025 (approximately two and a half years behind schedule). Contract deadlines for project substantial completion in the fall of 2021 were not met. As a result, the Town of Canmore issued a Notice of Default to the contractor, requiring remedy for the default and a plan for completion. The contractor disputed the Notice of Default, initiating the dispute resolution mechanisms of the contract. This process is ongoing. The dispute process and current project status has resulted in significant project uncertainty. This is a priority project, protecting lives, property, critical facilities, utilities, and national transportation infrastructure. The Town of Canmore is committed to using all tools available to remedy the situation and complete the project.
- concerns from Bow Valley Victim Services about the provincial redesign
- the brand refresh from Tourism Canmore Kananaskis
- a status report on the Town of Canmore’s Climate Action Plan targets including the 2021 Greenhouse Gas Inventory
