Fort Saskatchewan City Council has been in office for over a year now.
At a recent organizational meeting for council, mayor Gale Katchur gave a speech about how the past year has been.
"Really talking about reflecting, what we have accomplished in the last year and this council has made good work and progress on a lot of items," explained Katchur.
She mentioned that this particular council had to focus a lot of time and effort into the smoking bylaw, code of conduct bylaw and approving the campground from a temporary to a permanent campground.
There was also a lot of growth for new councillors, learning what it means to be on a city council.
"It's just a really exciting time for city council. We love this community, everybody is a community builder in Fort Saskatchewan and just to be able to play a small role in improving our community, being positive in our community, I think that's why we do this job and we still all remain very excited about being a member of city council," added Katchur.
Coming up on council's agenda will be the budget for 2019.
