CAO Rita Maure
Village of Donnelly
Council held an open house to discuss with residents the Public Notification Bylaw.
There were no residents that attended, and the public meeting was adjourned at 7:15 p.m.
ATCO Red Flag Power Pole
The power poles flagged by ATCO Electric for repair/replacement had been approved to be done at a previous meeting.
Council had motioned to have MSI Capital cover this expense, however this work did not meet MSI Capital criteria. Therefore, the cost will be paid from reserves.
Council is interested in participating in a regional project to purchase a software that will help to keep residents informed on urgent and important issues.
The software called All-Net Communication will allow the Village staff to be able to send text, voice message, mass e-mail, and social media messages.
Due to the low population in the region, we can partner with the other municipalities that are interested.
