CAO Rawlusyk re­viewed pro­posed By­law No. 1123, a by­law to au­tho­rize the County to bor­row funds on a short term ba­sis in 2016 for the pur­pose spec­i­fied in Sec­tion 256 of the Mu­nic­i­pal Govern­ment Act. This by­law au­tho­rizes the County to bor­row up to $5,000,000.00 on a short term ba­sis, if nec­es­sary.

Moved that By­law No. 1123, a By­law of Starland County, to au­tho­rize the County to bor­row funds on a short term ba­sis in 2016 for the pur­pose spec­i­fied in Sec­tion 256 of the Mu­nic­i­pal Govern­ment Act be given Third and Fi­nal Read­ing. CAR­RIED UNAN­I­MOUSLY.

CAO Rawlusyk noted that the County’s Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Con­tract with Rough Meadow Man­age­ment is up for re­newal. He dis­cussed this con­tract with Coun­cil and the pro­posed amend­ments to it.

Moved that the Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Con­tract with Rough Meadow Man­age­ment Inc. be re­newed for a two year term, April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2018; and that the terms and con­di­tions be as out- lined within this con­tract. CAR­RIED UNAN­I­MOUSLY.

The AAMDC pre­vi­ously re­quested in­put from the ru­ral mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in the form of a ques­tion­naire and now com­piled this feed­back into a sub­mis­sion and let­ter which they sub­mit­ted to Al­berta Health.

The AAMDC pro­vided an up­date on their in­volve­ment with the Fed­er­a­tion of Cana­dian Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties Board. They pro­vided back­ground in­for­ma­tion on the board meet­ings held and the rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Al­berta that at­tend, as well as ad­di­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tives at­tend­ing the com­mit­tee meet­ings.

In re­gards to the Mu­nic­i­pal Govern­ment Act Re­view, cor­re­spon­dence was re­ceived from the Al­berta Ru­ral Mu­nic­i­pal Ad­min­is­tra­tors As­so­ci­a­tion in re­gards to the cen­tral­iza­tion of in­dus­trial prop­erty as­sess­ment. They for­warded a let­ter from the Al­berta Asses­sors’ As­so­ci­a­tion out­lin­ing their rec­om­men­da­tions in re­sponse to the dis­cus­sion doc­u­ment from the Stake­holder Ad­viso- ry Com­mit­tee. In short, this As­so­ci­a­tion does not sup­port the cre­ation of a cen­tral agency to pre­pare in­dus­trial as­sess­ments on be­half of mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and fur­ther pro­vided their rec­om­mended ap­proach.

Cor­re­spon­dence was re­ceived from Prairie Fuel As­so­ci­a­tion (PFA) Canada with re­gards to the fuel pro­cure­ment pro­gram. They pro­vided no­tice that they will be send­ing out an RFP in the near fu­ture, with a ven­dor to be cho­sen by late June and the new Sup­ply Agree­ments tak­ing ef­fect Au­gust 1, 2016.

CAO Rawlusyk dis­cussed var­i­ous dis­cus­sion items for the up­com­ing joint meet­ing with the Villages of Delia, Mor­rin and Mun­son. Coun­cil mem­bers were re­quested to con­sider ad­di­tional items to be added to the agenda. This will be a dinner meet­ing at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall, com­menc­ing at 6:00 p.m.

In ad­di­tion to the let­ter re­ceived from Cana­dian Nat­u­ral Re­sources Ltd., we also re­ceived a let­ter from Quest­fire En­ergy Corp. They are re­quest­ing the County’s con­sid­er­a­tion of mu­nic­i­pal bud­get re­straints and tax rate re­duc­tions as well. Coun­cil fur­ther dis­cussed this is­sue and re­viewed a let­ter of re­sponse pre­pared by CAO Rawlusyk.

Cor­re­spon­dence was re­ceived from the Rum­sey Drop-In Cen­tre, re­quest­ing Coun­cil’s con­sid­er­a­tion of a small do­na­tion to as­sist with re­pair­ing the dam­aged roof on their fa­cil­ity. They have raised $12,000.00 to date, how­ever, the quotes re­ceived for this re­pair are be­tween $15,000 and $16,000.

Moved that Starland County do­nate $4,000.00 to the Rum­sey Drop-In Cen­tre to as­sist them with re­pair­ing the roof on their fa­cil­ity. MO­TION CAR­RIED.
