·2 min read

By Kenyon Stronski Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Taber Times Taber town council updated each other on their busy summers so far as we head towards the end of summer. Councillors gave their reports for the month at town council’s regular meeting on Aug. 16. Coun. Garth Bekkering and Coun. Carly firth stated they had nothing important to report. Coun. Mark Garner attended the Taber Trout Pond meeting and the Traffic Committee meeting. Coun. Joe Strojwas noted “It is quiet in the summer, but the Alberta-Japan Twinned Municipality Association has been having its meetings and they’re looking forward to have a AGM (Annual General Meeting) in September trying to secure the conference being held in Taber in 2022.” Coun. Jack Brewin echoed that it has been a quiet month, but he did attend the hockey school and watched the new Westview Park being built. “Everyone’s done a fantastic job.” Mayor Andrew Prokop was the last to present. “I also attended Westview Park and assisted there a couple days. Probably around 200 to 300 volunteer hours I’d imagine. They did it in less than a week, so that’s very commendable. I also attended the 30th anniversary of the Aquafun Centre which was a very well done and nice event.” Coun. Bekkering came to council with a request, stating a concern was brought to him regarding the new trout pond crossing lights on the highway acting sporadically. “We had an issue where we just got them going when somebody hit them with a trailer, so we had to replace a pole. If they are not working properly it’s up to the contractors and not the town, so we’ll bring that recommendation to them.”
