Blackfalds councillor wants backlogged meeting minutes uploaded onto website

Town of Blackfalds Coun. Marina Appel wants council meeting minutes to be uploaded onto its website in a timely manner.

During council’s regular Zoom meeting March 9, Coun. Appel presented a motion that administration look at procedures for completing minutes and uploading them onto the website. In addition, she asked that they come back with a date when the backlogged minutes would be online.

“The highlights are up but the highlights don’t record votes and don’t have as much information on them,” said Coun. Appel.

In addition, Coun. Appel said that when you click on the bylaw governing minutes, it actually directs you to the records bylaw.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Myron Thompson said administration had identified a lapse in having meeting minutes uploaded onto the website and said steps are being taken to update those accordingly.

Coun. Appel’s motion was carried unanimously.
