    TOWN OF COALHURST – OPEN DOOR POLICY

    The Town of Coalhurst would like all residents to be aware of the open door policy in which it has always been proud to offer. All Regular Council Meetings are open to the public and held the first and third Tuesday of the month. If you have any concerns, issues or questions, there is an opportunity to address Council at any meeting, with a 5 minute time allowance, under the “Citizens without Formal Notice” section of the agenda. Where an individual, group, agency or organization wishes to appear before Council, as a formal delegation, to bring forth a matter or have any matter considered by Council, that individual or group will submit the matter to the Chief Administrative Officer in a written form which will: i. be printed, typed or legibly written, ii. clearly set out the matter at issue and the

    request made of Council, iii. be signed by the writer, iv. contain the correct mailing address and

    telephone number of the writer, v. be delivered or mailed to the Town Office so

    as to arrive no later than the Thursday morning prior to the meeting at which it is to be presented.

    The Chief Administrative Officer will arrange for an appointment during the “Delegations” section of the agenda. Any resident may, at any time, make an appointment to come into the Town Office and speak to the Chief Administrative Officer, Mayor, Council member, Bylaw Officer or any Department head during office hours. As stated above, the Town remains proud to offer its open door policy to all residents.

    SAD GOOD-BYE It is with a very sad heart that we say our good-byes to a wonderful man, Deputy Mayor for the Town of Coalhurst, Gus Vander Linden. Gus passed away on Sunday,

    August 5, 2012 at the Chinook Regional Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Gus was a genuinely caring, loving and thoughtful person. For the staff of the Town of Coalhurst, Gus’s kindness, consideration and appreciation towards each and every one of us will be missed, not only as a Council member, but as a friend. His sense of humour and easy approach to working with the staff inspired all to do and be better. He will never be replaced. Gus may be gone, but he will definitely not be forgotten by those of us who have had the pleasure and opportunity to work alongside him, and to have known such an amazing man. Good-bye for now Gus, you are greatly missed.
