Red Deer Minute: Roadway Reduction, Political Pints, and Local Mandates Avoided


Red Deer Minute - Your weekly one-minute summary of Red Deer politics


This Week In Red Deer:

  • It's going to be a very quiet week at City Hall this week, with no full Council meeting scheduled.

  • There will, however, be a meeting of the Red Deer & District Family & Community Support Services Board on Tuesday at 5:00 pm. At this meeting, Council will hear reports regarding a FCSS special report, a 2020/2021 carry forwards adjustment, and a financial matter that will be discussed in-camera (in secret).

  • Red Deer is looking for volunteers who can interpret legislation and communicate effectively to sit on each of 11 City boards, committees, and commissions with current vacancies. All the details are on the City’s website, so find the one that interests you and make sure to apply before Monday, September 27th at 9:00 am!


Last Week In Red Deer:

  • While many cities across the province considered reintroducing a municipal mask mandate, the City of Red Deer opted not to do so. City officials cited several mask mandates already in place, including masks on public transit and rideshare taxis. It seems like they made the right call as, on Friday, the Province introduce their own mandate anyway.

  • After lengthy discussions at both a Public Hearing on Monday and at Tuesday's Council Meeting, City Council passed its third reading of an amendment that will reduce the potential roadway crossing Piper Creek between Molly Bannister Drive and 22 Street from an arterial roadway to a collector roadway.

  • Last week we held our first ever Pints and Politics at the Toad 'N' Turtle! We had a great time meeting with friends new and old and plan to host another such event soon. If you want to know more about upcoming events, you can follow us on Facebook, Facebook GroupsTwitter, and LinkedIn, or just keep an eye out for future emails.



Common Sense Red Deer doesn't accept any government funding and never will. We think you should be free to choose, for yourself, which organizations to support. If you're in a position to contribute financially, you can make a donation here.



If you're not in a position to donate, we understand, but if you appreciate our work, you can help by spreading our message. Please email this post to your friends, share it on Facebook or Twitter, and help make sure every Red Deerian knows what's really going on at City Hall.
