Each year, AAMDC members often pass resolutions which seek change to the Municipal Government Act (MGA). Once the Government of Alberta begins its official MGA consultation, there will be discussion on numerous other topics that have not been addressed through the AAMDC’s resolution process.  

To ensure the interests and priorities of our members are represented, the AAMDC will host a series of consultation workshops across the province to gather input. Facilitated by AAMDC staff, the intent of these sessions is to discuss elements of the MGA that could be improved and those that are beneficial and should be retained. Please see the attached agenda and discussion materials.  Participants are encouraged to review these ahead of time to ensure a comprehensive discussion.

These workshops will provide AAMDC with further direction to ensure the association is well positioned to contribute to the government-led consultations moving forward.  Workshops will be held from 9:45 am to 3:00 pm at the following locations:

  • Tuesday, August 20 – Grimshaw (Grimshaw Legion Hall)

  • Thursday, August 22 – Hay Lakes (Hay Lakes Agriplex)

  • Friday, August 23 – Coaldale (Readymade Community Hall)

As noted in our previous bulletin, these sessions are intended for elected officials and municipal staff of AAMDC’s 69 full member municipalities. Please RSVP your attendance, specifying location, to Cindy Carstairs at cindy.carstairs@aamdc.com by August 15, 2013.
