Mayor, Town council and fellow Citizens of Morinville:
Before I begin with my comments on the Request for Proposal (RFP) going out to the Automated Traffic Enforcement (ATE) contractors I would like to acknowledge and praise Deputy Mayor Gord Putnam for asking for an addition to the proposal which was to include better “public interface and education” in the RFP.

I would compare this to tendering a bid for a contractor to build a house with no blueprints, you don’t know what you’re going to get. … […]

I would like to thank our Council for the Open House held on April 28th. It was good to see more people attending this and sharing their views.
