Town of Golden Council Notes

Golden and Area Emergency Preparedness Program Agreement was renewed.

Golden Emergency Management Program

The Town of Golden Council has passed a resolution to extend the Golden and Area Emergency Preparedness Program Agreement.

The original recommendation by staff was to extend it for three years, but it was ammended to one year.

The agreement will have a cap on the amount of money spent by the town, but the dollar figure of that cap has been referred to a future meeting.

 

Procedure Bylaw

A New Council Procedure Bylaw has passed its first reading. The bylaw is a fundamental stature required of all local governments to guide the processes of town council and committee meeings, as well as procedure for passion motions and bylaws.

The document has been “significantly restructured” according to manager of corporate services, Jon Wilsgard.

 

Economic Development Select Committee

Following council’s decision in May 2012 to cancel the Community Economic Development Services Agreement between the town and the regional district,  council has approved the proposed terms of reference for an Economic Development Service Vision Select Committee.

Coun. Ron Oszust opposed the resolution because it did not include involvment from the regional government.
