By Kenyon Stronski Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Taber Times Taber town council has made a few changes in regard to a few bylaws. At council’s Aug. 16 meeting, two bylaws made their way through council’s hands, the first being Bylaw 15-2021 — Long-term Borrowing. This bylaw highlighted the $4.6 million debenture for the Meadows project and so far there has been no appeal or petition, so council was recommended to move through to the final reading of the bylaw. Coun. Garth Bekkering began the motion for council to give second reading of the bylaw, and Coun. Mark Garner gave the motion to give the final reading to the bylaw. The second bylaw in front of council was the Proposed Fee Bylaw 21-2021. Bylaw 21-2021 was brought to council for consideration to reduce fees for one-on-one training and single household rentals for the Aquafun Centre. These changes were brought up during COVID, but now there are no more restrictions, the Aquafun Centre would like to proceed with the amendments to the proposed bylaw. The amendments changed the pricing back to original as they just wished to take the fees out as there isn’t a reason to have specifically single household renting or one-on-one training anymore. All three readings were passed by council unanimously.
