Council Accepts Climate Action Plan

The Climate Action Plan sets out our community and corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and reduction targets, and identifies actions intended to achieve these targets. You can read more about the action plan here https://canmore.ca/residents/stewardship-of-the-environment/climate-change-adaptation-plan

Council Remuneration Policy Updated

The Council Remuneration Policy was adjusted so that a councillor’s basic rate of pay covers up to 16 hours of regular meetings each month. Councillors are now eligible to claim a per diem for attending regular meetings in excess of 16 hours per month. This change is intended to address the elimination of four-hour limits on council meetings. Visit https://canmore.ca/town-hall/policies to read the remuneration policy.

Council also approved:
