Council discussed a road allowance for TR 30 and Range Road 262, which they moved to have administration write a second letter outlining their concerns about the allowance. Discussion relating to access to a County Road Allowance was moved to the next meeting on Oct. 7.


Proposed Bylaw 805.2022 passed through council’s hands relating to Division 5 within the county. According to the minutes, the purpose of the application is to rezone 41 acres of land zoned as agriculture to Rural Recreation and another three acres of land to Single Lot Residential. The purpose of the rezoning is to support plans for a future subdivision and campground.
While it was moved by Coun. Roger Houghton to give the bylaw its second reading, but the motion was defeated.
