CITIZENS for a BETTER COALDALE
Petition for a Municipal Inspection
A municipal inspection is done by an independent examiner, assigned by the Provincial Minister of Alberta Municipal Affairs to investigate the concerns of residents, and provides an evaluation along with any recommendations for improvements if needed.
A municipal inspection can be triggered either by Town Council voluntarily agreeing to the inspection, or by a petition to Alberta Municipal Affairs, signed by at least 20% of the town's population.
We recently requested a Municipal Inspection to Coaldale Town Council. Despite the Town receiving hundreds of letters of support for our request, most of the Councillor’s did not want Alberta Municipal Affairs looking into how the Town has been conducting business and voted against supporting a Municipal Inspection. The Town could have used the Municipal Inspection as a community dispute-resolution opportunity since it will providing valuable recommendations for improvements that our citizens group strives for, as well potentially vindicate town council, clearing any alleged clouds of wrongdoing.
