City of Leduc Council Meeting Notes - May 11th, 2015

City of Leduc Council RCMP Report

Deputy Mayor Doug Mackenzie called City Council Meeting to order at 7pm.

The first order of business was the Adoption of the agenda and the minutes of the April 27th council meeting.

RCMP Inspector Kevin R. Kunetzki was introduced to City Council. Inspector Kunetzki is now the head of the Leduc detachment. Inspector Kunetzki comes to the Leduc detachment with several years of experience with the RCMP first as a civilian member, he would serve as a member of the team for the G8 Summit in Kananaskis. From there, Inspector Kunetzki became a member of Project K.A.R.E., which is a special branch of the RCMP that looks into unsolved homicides and high risk missing persons. He spent time working in Faust then High Prairie before he made a move to the Beaumont detachment in 2012.

The major new business was the amending of the Committee-of-the-Whole meeting dates and the passing of Bylaw #895-2015 regarding additional borrowing for the Highway 2A Realignment offsite levy project.

Since there have been significant changes in the realignment plans since 2005 when council first approved the first Offsite Levy Bylaw an additional 3.9 million will be required to complete the realignment. The realignment is required to meet Alberta Transportation requirements.

The realignment will create a new intersection, which will allow a southern access point to Southfork that is far enough west of the railway and will provide a future crossing point for the City’s south boundary road. This access will also allow the City to meet its commitment for a proper access to the new Father Leduc School planned to be opened in 2016.

City administration recommended the passing of the Bylaw as a delay would result in a late tender period and could result in cost increases and a delay would make it difficult to provide the access in time of the opening of the new school.

Council gave 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading to the bylaw, which will allow the city to proceed to tendering.

Reports were received from Mayor Krischke, various council members, and Planning and Engineering regarding the building permits issued in April.

Deputy Mayor Doug Mackenzie adjourned the meeting at 7:40 pm.
