I Will Continue Working Towards
A Growing Wetaskiwin
- explore partnering with other municipalities to integrate our transit systems to connect our residents to new jobs at the EIA, Nisku, and Edmonton
- continue to invest and rebuild our roads and vital infrastructure ensuring safe, efficient movement of labour, goods, and services.
A Safe Wetaskiwin:
- Continue working closely with the RCMP for crime reduction initiatives
- Explore options on how to address and reduce domestic violence in our community
- Addressing the root cause of crime by filling the gaps in our support services, increasing accessibility to mental health and other support services in our community.
A Caring Wetaskiwin:
- Engage with youth by creating a “Youth Advisory Committee” that will advise council on youth issues
- Explore options for developing an affordable housing strategy
- Continue to work towards adding support services in our community for our vulnerable population
An Environmentally Sustainable Wetaskiwin:
- develop a ‘Wetaskiwin Environmental Advisory Board’ that is a city board comprised of public representatives to advise Wetaskiwin City Council on environmental issues.
- review the potential of investing in renewable energy for our public buildings that would be a net-positive investment, which ultimately saves Wetaskiwin dollars in the long-term
