Wetaskiwin County council approves Twin Lakes attendant agreement

Wetaskiwin County council approved a three-year park attendant contract for the Twin Lakes Park, with the annual remuneration of $22,200.

Wetaskiwin County council approved a three-year park attendant contract for the Twin Lakes Park, with the annual remuneration of $22,200.

The acceptance of the low bid went to Roseanne Saunders for $13,800. The contract will expire Oct. 31 2018 and it came into effect Nov. 1 2015.

Coun. Lyle Seely questioned how the agreement compared to other park agreements.

“They’d be one of our higher paid park attendant agreements,” said Geoff Lynch, director of leisure and community services.

However, he added many factors need to be taken into account regarding the contract payments, including the park’s foot traffic. “The volume they see, we see by the revenues is way high.”

Lynch says the park attendant will also have to deal with past issues involving Twin Lakes. “The clientele hasn’t been the best. But since they’ve come in they’ve done a great job communicating the rules.”

“For what we’re paying them, that big site, they’re doing a heck of a job. You can’t find that value,” he added.

“After we got her everyone was so happy they fit right in there,” said Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers.
