Fort Macleod residents have a chance Wednesday, July 15 to comment on policing and by-law enforcement.

The Town of Fort Macleod and Fort Macleod RCMP are co-operating on a virtual town hall meeting at 2:30 p.m. on Youtube.

“To open up dialogue with our residents of Fort Macleod and surrounding area, we would like some feedback on both municipal enforcement and policing matters,” explained Meranda Day Chief, executive assistant with the Town of Fort Macleod.

RCMP Sgt. Bryan Mucha, who has command of the Fort Macleod detachment, will join Town of Fort Macleod chief administrative officer Sue Keenan as town hall facilitators.

Town of Fort Macleod by-law enforcement officer Wes Noble and director of community and protective services Liisa Gillingham will also be available.

Sgt. Gary MacLaren of the Southern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit will take part to talk about efforts in Fort Macleod.

People were asked to complete an on-line survey prior to the town hall.

The on-line survey, which ended Sunday, asked the following questions about service provided by the RCMP:

  • What are the most pressing crime trend concerns for the Town of Fort Macleod?
  • What priorities should the RCMP in Fort Macleod focus on with respect to law enforcement?
  • What other issues or concerns do you have relating to policing in the Town of Fort Macleod and area?

The on-line survey also asked the following questions about municipal by-law enforcement:

  • What are some by-law concerns you have?
  • Do you know where or how to access by-law information?

Staff from the RCMP and Town of Fort Macleod will address concerns during the virtual town hall meeting.

“We hope that it is successful in helping people have their concerns heard and also get information, while being able to social distance from the comfort of their home,” Day Chief said.
