Rocky View County Council Makes Annual Appointments
Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Rocky View County Council held its annual organizational meeting to elect a Reeve and Deputy Reeve and make appointments to positions on a number of boards and committees.
The meeting began with the selection by council of Division 6 Councillor Greg Boehlke as Reeve for a second consecutive term, and Division 4 Councillor Al Schule as Deputy Reeve. Under the County’s system, councillors elect a Reeve and Deputy Reeve each year from their ranks and the Reeve serves as head of council, and chairs council meetings.
Councillor Kim McKylor was elected as Chair of Council’s Policy and Priorities Committee for a second term.
Council also appointed councillors and public members to various boards and committees. The available positions were advertised in advance, and Council reviewed resumes and applications ahead of Tuesday’s vote.
