Mayor Brian Whittal says the petition had insufficient signatures as it would require 20% of residents to sign it. According to Whittal, the individual was concerned about the town's spending & strategies it was implementing.
A Didsbury resident's recent petition regarding concerns about the town's spending & strategies council was implementing has been deemed invalid by Alberta Municipal Affairs.
According to Mayor Brian Whittal, the petition called for a complete internal audit & financial review, but it had insufficient signatures on it to make it a valid petition.
Whittal feels the town is on the right track & he wants to continue moving
forward with its progress.
Whittal says that Minister of Municipal Affairs Doug Griffiths will be visiting Didsbury in September to discuss a potential corporate review.
Mayor Whittal believes the petition served a good purpose in reminding them that
positive communication is needed as they serve the public.
