The City of Wetaskiwin is currently in the process of undertaking a review of the City Archives.
The City says that the objective of this review is to examine the current portfolio and assets of the archives and to engage regional and community stakeholders to help guide future direction of the archives.
“The City is aware of the importance of the archives to many in our community and surrounding area, so we are taking the time to ensure that community members have the opportunity to share their ideas and opinions prior to any decisions being made as to the future use of the archives,” says Paul Edginton, General Manager of Community and Protective Services.
“We invite your participation in this process, as the City of Wetaskiwin’s decision will be based on a variety of factors, including community interest and preferred use of the archives in the future.”
The City has engaged MNP, an Alberta based consulting firm, to conduct the review of the archives. MNP will be reaching out to stakeholders to schedule interviews with interested parties and will be able to provide additional details on the process.
