The Town of Redwater tidied up their Land Use Bylaw last night (September 5).
After a brief public hearing, Redwater Town Council got to work cleaning up the essential document.
"It makes [town manager Deb Hamilton's] job easier because there won't be anymore questions," explained mayor Mel Smith. "It's minimal stuff but because it's a formal document, we had to go through the process of changing it."
Small mistakes in wording, punctuation and grammar were fixed in the revised edition.
"We didn't change the bylaw at all fundamentally," added Smith.
The overhaul of the bylaw costed the town $2,000, but was well accounted for when the 2017 budget was put together.
The new document is much more clear and concise, allowing quicker research by town staff for clients and residents.
