Council was briefed on and approved the city manager recruitment strategy that has been developed by a search committee comprised of four members of Council with assistance from the interim City Manager. The initial stage will include gathering public input in the development of a position profile that describes the attributes, skills, knowledge and experience desired in the ideal candidate. The committee is aiming for the selection process to be complete by mid-April 2018.

Council approves request to help fund Pride Fest 10th anniversary celebration

City Council members voted 7-2 to approve a request for $30,000 to help fund the Lethbridge Pride Fest 10th anniversary celebration June 15-23, 2018. The funding will come from Council contingencies, and because the event can receive only one municipal grant per year, Pride Fest will forego a previously approved grant of $5,000 from the 2018 Heart of Our City Activity Grant.
