Former county councilors to get recognition in form of cash, watch

County of Stettler councilors approve recognition for Joe Gendre, Gregg Jackson

In accordance with past practice, County of Stettler council has decided two former councilors will receive service recognition at a council meeting in December. The decision was made at the Nov. 8 regular meeting of council, and all councilors were present for the meeting.

Under “New Business” on the agenda, councilors discussed an item called “Service recognition.”

“Council needs to determine the details for the presentation of Service Recognition. Recommendation: That the County of Stettler No. 6 Council present the Council Service Recognition to former Councilors Greggory Jackson and Joe Gendre… in accordance with Council Policy CN 1.4 – Council Service Recognition.”

The agenda item noted Council Policy 1.3 – Council Service Recognition states that Presentation of Service Recognition will be done at an event determined by council following each general election. There are two former councilors who are eligible to receive service recognition awards this year and council will need to determine how that presentation will be completed.

It was noted that the longer serving former councilor is eligible for a gift of $650 plus a watch, while the shorter serving former councilor is eligible for $350.00 plus a watch.

Councilors were asked if they still wished to do this. Councilor Dave Grover said yes, it’s tradition and should be carried on.

Councilor Les Stulberg suggested the two former councilors be invited to the December regular meeting of council and presented with their recognition, then be invited to join council for lunch. The proposal was passed unanimously.
