For Immediate Release / May 23, 2023
Council Notice of Motion
The City is continuing to inform residents and members of the media when Councillors provide a notice of motion and the next Council Meeting is more than one week away.
On May 23, 2023, Councillor Hughes, via email, submitted the following notice of motion: That the city in consultation with the Seniors Advisory Committee create a St. Albert Seniors Service Awards recognition annual program. The program will recognize both residents that provide extraordinary volunteer services to seniors in St. Albert and seniors who provide extraordinary volunteer services in our community, with the recipients reviewed and recommended to council by the Seniors Advisory Committee and recognized during Seniors' week each year.
Past practice was for Councillors to read notices of motion into the public record near the end of each regularly scheduled Council Meeting. This practice will continue and works well in situations where Council Meetings take place in consecutive weeks.
However, in situations where Council Meetings do not take place in consecutive weeks, the City will be issuing a news release to inform residents and members of the media of any notices of motion received in the previous week.
