Mayor`s Message

 

   On behalf of municipal council I would like to welcome you to our web page!  The existing council commenced their mandate in 2008 and since this time we have thrived hard to improve our community.
 We are aware that the past council left the municipality in good financial condition. Our goal is to continue to manage the municipality in a responsible manner. 
 Since the beginning of our mandate we wanted to be transparent and listen to our citizens.   This is why we went from one to two public meetings per month. In the fall of 2008, we invited the population to contribute to our strategic plan. The importance to have a festival was confirmed by the public and because of this our 2009 Festival was a great success. In January 2009 we held a council meeting at our Arthur-Pinet School. We wanted to share with the youths how the council functions as well as listen to their ideas and concerns. At this meeting a request for a bike park (BMX) was requested. We were able to acquire the funds necessary, therefore a BMX bike park will be erected in our community.   I am beyond satisfaction with what we were able toaccomplish with regards to capital expenses.   
The present council was equally able to contribute to improving our community by purchasing a new fire truck, by paving the following streets: Principal, Whalen and Church. We have completed work to improve the sewerage system, the water reservoir and many others. Finally but not least our web page is now functioning! 
We will certainly continue to work hard to serve and represent you!
