It will be checked again, but, according to CAO Sandra Kulyk, it will be less expensive this time because it will not be an emergency trip. Brigley also reported that the new handicap lift will be installed into the pool in time for next year. “I think it’s great,” said Coun. Vickey Horkoff, “because sometimes water therapy is the best.” It will also make the pool accessible to some seniors who have mobility issues. Under the Public Works report, Allan Smith was granted approval to pull and replace the pump and motor on Clive council the bulk water well at the town shop for approximately $10,000. The well is used for several things, including watering flowers, washing the pool, flooding the outdoor ice surface, steaming culverts and an emergency water supply for the fire department. Traffic Bylaw Research by CAO Kulyk found that most towns and cities include motor homes and travel trailers under the definition of ‘recreation vehicles’. An amended bylaw will be prepared for council’s consideration that will change the definition to include motor homes, holiday trailer, trailer, camper, tent trailer, any van or bus converted for use as a recreational vehicle, boat trailer, Prior to the regular Clive council meeting on Sept. 25, Deputy Mayor Luci Henry presented Anita Gillard, retiring mayor, with a gavel in recognition of her distinguished leadership and service to the Village of Clive. Anita Gillard served as councillor in 2005 and mayor of Clive from 2006 through 2017. ECA Review/Submitted Gavel of recognition Clive village councillors approved third and final reading on three bylaws including a Procedural Bylaw, Code of Conduct Bylaw and Social Media Policy Bylaw. The purpose of the Social Media Bylaw was to provide guidelines to establish proper management of the Village of Clive’s social media accounts/pages and to facilitate public engagement to ensure consistency and openness. The Code of Conduct sets out clear expectations on the behaviour of council members and a mechanism for responding to alleged breaches.
