During their regular meeting July 22, Sylvan Lake councillors:

• passed first reading of a bylaw required to redesignate the future fire hall site from commercial land to public/institutional land, and set August 26 as the date for a public hearing on the matter.

• passed first reading of a bylaw to create a variety of designations for land in the Crestview subdivision. Through the bylaw, lots will be zoned for medium lot residential, high density residential, narrow lot general residential, narrow lot duplex residential, neighbourhood convenience commercial and public facility uses. A public hearing on the bylaw was set for August 26.

Councillors also accepted the Crestview Outline Plan for information. The plan indicates a switch in phases two and three of the subdivision so that the second phase of development would take place just east of 50th Street rather than on the extreme east side of the quarter section.

The plan will be presented to council for acceptance after the public hearing.

• appointed Reuben Mulholland, Andy Roy, Jarvis Gamroth and Dave Kyllo as bylaw enforcement officers for the town under provisions of the Town of Sylvan Lake Bylaw Enforcement Officers Bylaw. Nick Reijnen was appointed as chief bylaw enforcement officer.

They have the power to enforce traffic, community standards, transportation of dangerous goods and heavy vehicles, dog, cat, election sign, land use, drinking establishment licensing, smoke free and fire protection bylaws.

• appointed Jim deBoon, Denai deBoon and Rebekah Bauer as bylaw enforcement officers to enforce dog and cat bylaws under provisions of the same bylaw.

• appointed Reuben Mulholland, Andy Roy, Shelby Reid and Art Preachuk as 2013 municipal weed inspectors for the town. The appointments are necessary for compliance to the Alberta Weed Control Act, wrote Reijnen, manager of municipal enforcement, in his report to council.

• accepted the Communication Strategy Project Plan update for information. The project indicates how the town will “implement key components of the Sylvan Lake Corporate Communications Strategy”, according to the document prepared by Joanne Gaudet. Various activities will require budget consideration in the 2014 budget discussion process, the report stated.

• heard from Betty Osmond, the town’s chief administrative officer, that Canada Day fireworks have been rescheduled to September 1st at the pier “as a Farewell to Summer”. In a wide ranging report she also reported Highway 11 and 20 turn lanes have been opened, new lane markings are painted.

The move into the new town hall is planned for August 16 with the building open to the public on August 19.
