StrathmoreTimes .com Great result   Kings offense in high gear OCTOBER 24, 2014 STRATHMORE SHANNON LECLAIR Times Reporter  With the announcement of Councillor John Rempel resigning at the end of October, a by-election has been called for Dec. 15. Under  Alberta legislation a municipality has 90 days to hold a by-election when a position opens up on council. It was felt trying to hold the election in early January could be tough with people possibly away on holidays.“The reason we’re doing it before Christmas is because a lot of people leave after Christ-mas, or they’re gone on holidays,” said Mu-nicipal Clerk for the town Jennifer Sawatzky. “We’re trying to do it before Christmas but not too close to Christmas, so we thought the 15 would be good and then working back, I have strict deadlines in regards to advertis-ing of the election and an advanced vote and nomination day.”Nomination papers are available now at the  Town of Strathmore office, and nomination day is Nov. 17, which is exactly four weeks  before the election, and is the minimum al-lowable time between nomination day and Election Day.Nomination forms must be signed by five electors over the age of 18 who live in the  Town of Strathmore, and who have also lived here for at least six months. The fee is $250, and the nomination hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Forms are to be brought into the town office in that time frame, not a minute later. “Those hours are very strict, so if they come in at one minute after 12 noon or even a few milliseconds after, I can’t accept the applica-tions, that’s legislation,” said Sawatzky.Candidates don’t have to bring in the forms personally on Nov. 17, but they are required to have them signed before a Commissioner of Oaths. The forms can also be signed in front of Sawatzky, who is a Commissioner of Oaths.“After nominations have closed, which is 12 noon, people can come in and inspect the nominations, but no one can inspect them  before,” said Sawatzky.“I assume several people will run. We nor-mally don’t have quite as big a turnout at a  by-election, but we certainly encourage peo-ple to come and vote,” said Chief Administra-tive Officer Dwight Stanford. The advanced poll will be held on Dec. 8,  with the election itself taking place on Dec. 15 at the Civic Centre. All voters must be 18-years-old, Strathmore residents and must have ID. By-election called Rise of the Legends ! Doug Taylor Photo  VOLUME 6 ISSUE 43  Locally Owned & Operated  TIMES www.

SHANNON LECLAIR Times Reporter  Tristan Periard, chair, and Jennifer Pekrul, secretary, for the newly formed Regional Recreation Enhancement committee spoke to council about their plans for future recreation in the area.  The committee was formed due to the need for a multi-use facility in the area; something Periard said is long over-due. The committee would like to see Wheatland County, the Strathmore and District Ag Society and the Town of Strath-more partner together to plan for a multi-use recreational facility that will provide the amenities needed to support the current and future needs of Strathmore and area.  The hope to start is to get a needs assessment done, and a feasibility study. RC Strategies completed a needs assessment a few years ago, and this would be an update on that study. It will also include the feasibility study. It’s expected to cost approximately $80,000 which Periard said the committee is hoping will be split against the partners and then the fund-ing from the grants would go against those numbers. By partnering together the committe can apply for an Al- berta Community Partnership grant for the studies, which  will pay for a portion, if not all, of the costs. “Financially, with cooperation, we are able to work togeth-er to gain the funds needed. Together we will be eligible for numerous grants and funds that are available for these projects,” said Periard.“With compiling that information and getting that needs assessment done, we will know what our top priorities are and how we (go) from there, what our main priorities will be to start the building and how we will stage it and what kind of funding we actually will need, so we can actually have a cost to say this is what it will cost, this is what we will need and go from there.”Councillor Rocky Blokland questioned the need for the study. “I know what the town needs, I don’t need a study done for $80,000 to tell me what this town needs,” said Blokland. “The projects have to begin with a feasibility study be-cause otherwise there’s a lot of protest as to what is needed or some difference of opinions so-to-speak,” said Pekrul. “When you bring in professionals and you actually have  blueprints drawn up, it makes it a much more real and sus-tainable goal than just saying this is what we need, no this is  what we need and the argument goes back and forth. This is the beginning of what we truly need.”  The committee will not be in charge or responsible finan-cially for the needs assessment and were just asking those involved if they’re willing to do it.  When looking to move into new communities people are looking at recreation and what facilities are there. Infrastruc-ture is going up but, said Pekrul, the committee feels the need to play catch up and attract people to Strathmore. “Building this thing is one thing, getting it built another thing, operating this thing is going to be the highest expense on it. When you look at what we’ve got in town already with the three facilities where it’s costing us $2.4 million a year, I cannot imagine what this is going to cost,” said Blokland. He also stated that while at an Alberta Parks and Recre-ation conference a couple of years ago it was stated by one community that pathways and walking were on the top of their 20 item priority list, and a new Sportsplex was on the  bottom.  As always the issue will eventually come down to money, and what can reasonably be spent on both the needs assess-ment and moving forward. At this time council has agreed to support the committee on behalf of the town, and act as a partner with the county and Ag Society, but have not com-mitted to providing any funding at this time. Recreation committee gets council support SHANNON LECLAIR Times Reporter Health issues, partly related to stress, are the reason why one long-time councillor handed in his resignation on Oct. 15.  John Rempel has served 14 years as a councillor in the community, and says it is now time to step back. “The last year I’ve been dealing with some medical issues, and they’re not going away. The medical professionals that I have been working with strongly suggested that I remove myself from the stress of being on council,” said Rempel. “I don’t like the idea of quit-ting before the end of the term, but I really couldn’t see myself finishing the term, so I might as well step aside to give somebody else an opportunity to serve the community and serve out the term for me.”Rempel doesn’t plan to fully retire - he drives bus for the international stu-dents, something he said he doesn’t find stressful at all, and he will likely find something else to keep himself  busy. “There’s a lot more stress involved than what people might think. I guess maybe as you get older you don’t deal  with stress as well as maybe when  you’re younger,” said Rempel of being on council. The first few terms went by fast, and he was looking forward to dealing with issues, but said this last year has been an overwhelming one for him.“So I felt it was in the town’s best interest if I resigned. If I couldn’t ful-ly commit myself to being there and to doing what’s expected of us,” said Rempel.  A lot of things have been accom-plished during his time on council but “what stands out most of all is the sat-isfaction that I got from representing the seniors of this community, that was an absolute pleasure to do that, and that’s one thing that I will probably miss more than anything.” “I’ve worked with John Rempel for many years … he has been a dedicated councillor, he always voiced his opin-ions, was good to deal with, and he listened to the public,” said Chief Ad-ministrative Officer Dwight Stanford of the news.  A by-election has been called in light of the resignation news. Nomination day is Nov. 17. The advanced vote will  be on Dec. 8 and the Election Day will  be held on Dec. 15 at the Civic Centre.
