Eckville Town Council approved two re-appointments and one appointment to the Eckville Municipal Library Board.

At council’s regular scheduled meeting on Feb. 25 it was voted unanimously to re-appoint Garth Yeomans and Pam Carritt to another term as board members.

Yeomans will serve through Jan. 31, 2021 and Carritt until Jan. 1, 2022.

Geri Gordon was appointed as a new addition to the Town of Eckville Library Board and will serve until Feb. 19, 2022.

The three are on the board alongside Sandra Tremblay, Kevin See, Colleen Ebden and Dana Kreil.

Council also purchased a manufactured home which was delivered on Feb. 19.

The home is Town owned and council is looking to sell it with the lot it is on.

The manufactured home is located in the Westview Residential Subdivision and those interested are asked to inquire at the Town Office.

At the meeting on Feb. 25 it was also decided Eckville will not pay for a Parkland Airshed Zone Management Zone (PAMZ) 2019 membership.

The membership fee was invoiced to the Town at $411.59 plus GST based on a per capita calculation.

Although Eckville decided to opt out neighbouring communities such as Sundre, Lacombe, Caroline and Red Deer, as well as Mountainview and Red Deer Counties are members of PAMZ.

The next regular scheduled council meeting is March 11 at 6 p.m.
