During their regular meeting June 25, Sylvan Lake councillors:

• heard Sylvan Lake resident, Los Angeles Kings hockey player and Stanley Cup winner Colin Fraser is bringing the cup to town on Wednesday, July 18th. He’ll be here to sign autographs and they’re working with the business community to organize the event which will happen between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. They’re also exploring the possibility of closing main street.

• awarded a contract for construction of an equipment storage building at the recently purchased municipal operations building.

The contract was given to Conasph Environmental of Red Deer in the amount of $181,600 which was under the budgeted amount. Three bids were received.

The building is needed to house the garbage truck and other diesel fueled vehicles which give off odours if stored in the building where administration staff are working.

• received a summary and comparison of year-to-date statistics from the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment and heard from S/Sgt. Gary Rhodes about the annual performance plan of the detachment.

Their five objectives are reduction of abuse of alcohol, reduction the abuse of drugs, contribute to safe roads through increased provincial traffic enforcement and impaired driving charges, reduce crimes against people and prevent and reduce youth involvement in crime as victims and offenders.

“All the objectives are on track at the present time,” he said. “We don’t see any significant changes from previous years. In terms of crime we don’t see any significant issues there.”
