•••••• Mayor Terry Yemen opened the meeting by congratulating and thanking everyone involved in this year's Canada Day celebrations. •••••• Allan Kendrick, Director of Infrastructure Services, presented a request for decision to award the contract for the East Coulee Water Transmission Line to Knibb Development Ltd. for $3,489,593. Engineering costs for the project were budgeted at $500,000 for a total cost of $3,989,593. Councillor Jay Garbutt asked why the engineering costs were so high. CAO Ray Romanetz explained during the engineering study, more testing was required at the points where the water line would cross under the river. The high engineering costs reflect the costs of drilling during the testing. Councillor Sharel Shoff took a moment to reiterate the water line would not be going into East Coulee and would terminate on the western edge of the community. Councillor Lisa Hansen-Z acharuk asked if Knibb Development Ltd. had done a project on this scale before. Mr. Kendrick assured everyone that Knibb had the experience necessary, as they were the ones who did the water line from Rosedale to Cambria. Councillor Hansen-Zacharuk then asked if there would be an issue with Knibb, because they are also contracted to do road maintenance in Drumheller. It was felt by administration there would be no issue in completing the water line. A motion to award the contract was carried unanimously. •••••• Byron Nagazina, Director of Corporate Services, presented a request for decision to change the Town's benefits provider to Industrial Alliance. Mr. Nagazina explained the Town would save roughly $22,000 per year and its employees would take home roughly $100 extra per month. The Town's current benefits are through AMSC Sun Life and Blue Cross. Councillor Garbutt expressed he had no conflict of interest in the matter as the current benefits did not involve him. Mr. Nagazina highlighted a concern where seven retirees are currently taking advantage of a $5,000 retiree death benefit. The new provider would not be able to match the death benefit. CAO Romanetz felt the next step would be to discuss the benefits change with Town staff. Councill Andrew Berdahl felt that discussion should take place before Council were to make their decision. A motion to change benefits providers passed with Councillor Berdahl opposed. ••••••

curate description of the robber and what he was wearing. At 10:40 p.m., Bodie was located and arrested. Bodie was found in possession of the money and investigation reveal that what appeared to be a gun used in the robbery, was a toy lighter. Bodie, 25, admitted to being a cocaine addict and has three prior related oﬀenses, however they were characterized as a “mugging” sort of oﬀences. He has resided in Drumheller for less than a year.
