Message from the Reeve


nixonFollowing our election in October we find ourselves going into the next few years with a mostly new council. While we are looking forward to the challenges that are coming our way, it is important to take a moment and recognize the contributions of the past members of council for their years of public service.  We are looking forward to the challenge in leading the County of Stettler into a period of prosperity and growth by progressive and innovative actions.

This past summer has been a challenge for many of us involved in the County of Stettler, especially our transportation department; however, the bad roads will more than be offset by the blessings of much needed rainfall. The new council is eager to delve into all aspects of municipal governance and we are all committed to as much transparency as possible amongst the ratepayers, the council and administration. Together, we are dedicated to listening to our ratepayers and opening the lines of communications in hopes that we can better serve the County of Stettler.

The holidays are a great time to reflect on what has happened in the past years and to be hopeful for the future that the past experiences will shape.  This holiday season we will be looking forward to the new year, a year when the County of Stettler continues to foster the strength, vitality and sustainability of our communities.

I truly hope that each and every resident in the County of Stettler takes this time to spend time with their families, friends and loved ones.  Our communities are made up of strong, vibrant families and our wish for each one of them is that the joy and magic of the holiday season visits all of their homes. Merry Christmas Everyone!

Wayne Nixon, Reeve
