Town of Millet visitor guide ready to roll

Millet deputy fire chief Ron Brown earns provincial medal

Millet town council heard about the community’s first-ever visitor guide, during the regular meeting of council May 9.

Visitor guide

During councilor reports near the beginning of the meeting, councilor Pat Garrett noted the Town of Millet’s first visitor guide is complete. She said it was a lot of work for the tourism committee members, museum/visitor guide staff and the town.

Garrett said the sponsorship for the guide was fantastic, and the guide itself is completely paid for.

Firefighter’s medal

Councilors read a letter from the provincial government’s Municipal Affairs department noting Millet deputy fire chief Ron Brown has earned the Fire Services Exemplary Service medal, which will be presented to him May 27 in Edmonton.

Garrett suggested sending Brown a letter of congratulations. Then, on second though, Garrett suggested sending letters to the entire department, thanking the Millet firefighters for the great job they do.

Walking path

CAO Teri Pelletier gave her regular report, and was asked about the pedestrian bridge installation project. She stated completion is going to be a ways away yet.

Pelletier stated she spoke recently with the contractor about load weights, the foundation and other details. She also noted the town is working with the fire department on pedestrian bridge details in case emergency services have to use the bridge for access.

Meet in middle

Councilors read a letter from the Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce which stated the joint “Meet in Millet” chamber of commerce meeting is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 7.

Councilors discussed last year’s event, agreeing the meeting was quite productive.

The meeting invites both Wetaskiwin and Leduc chamber members, plus local dignitaries. The letter requested the town waive rental and damage deposit fees for the venue involved, the Agriplex.

Councilors unanimously agreed to do so.

Seniors week

Council approved a motion to proclaim June 3 to 9 as “Senior’s Week” in Millet.
