Council discussed holding a town hall meeting to not only introduce the five key objectives to the public, but expound on the strategies that support the goals. "It was a weekend well spent," said Mayor Lorenson, "we accomplished a great deal of work over the weekend."
Hall Waiver - Women's Retreat
Centred around women's health and well-being, a group of women is planning a "Women's Retreat" to be held on Saturday, February 26. With money tight, the group requested the waiving of the Millet Community Hall fee for the event. The retreat is popular with women as a nice break during mid-winter. It includes inspirational speakers, spa treatments, and lots of relaxation. Council waived the hall fee.
Economic Development Training
Mayor Lorenson received a special invitation to attend the Economic Development Authority's (EDA) course called Economic Development for Elected Officials. Councillor Ron Buchaski made a motion to send Mayor Lorenson to the Economic Development for Elected Officials course.
Town of Millet Communication Policy
Council and the Town recognize that building a strong, positive, and vibrant municipality requires clear and effective two-way communication, reasoning behind Council's dedication to inform the community of key Council decisions, services, and other initiatives, encourage community access to Councillors and staff, and promote opportunities for public consultation and participation in Council activities.
The Town will continue to use local newspapers, and will mail out bi-monthly newsletters in conjunction with the invoicing for all municipal utility accounts, but Mayor Lorenson emphasized that the Town of Millet website will be the main avenue for communication with the general public.
