The Traffic Control Bylaw 22-2021 relating to the Taber Community Centre parking lot has been updated.
“We have now included the definitions for an event and the definition for a patron. The changes to the community centre are outlined in the new bylaw. We also included councils motion to have the right to manage all traffic control devices,” said Director of Public Works Gary Scherer at the Sept. 13 council meeting. Taber town council passed the update to the bylaw unanimously.
Additionally, Scherer also discussed the cost that would be included with this new update.
“As we have discussed, there will be a cost for all the signage to go up — lettering both signage and containers. It’s all exclusive to $8,350, so we’re asking council for $8,500 just to cover the cost. There is also some concrete that’s not included in this but that’s the overall cost of signage and lettering.”
A motion was carried to direct administration to purchase the necessary items not exceeding $8,500 excluding GST and with funds to come from operating reserves.
