Sturgeon County Council is eager to begin their work after being sworn in.
Despite having some technical difficulties, a tame excitement filled council chambers at Tuesday's (October 24) meeting.
"I know that we all take our roles and our responsibilities to heart so with our hands on the Bible, we swore our oath and got down to conducting the business of the county," said mayor Alanna Hnatiw.
The council of 2017 to 2021 is aiming to listen to everyone, from residents to staff, administration, as well as each other to encourage respectful debate and reach solutions for success.
"I'm just really looking forward to the opportunity to work with each of these individuals and what's unfolding in the county right now."
They come in at a very interesting time for the county, with the Northwest Redwater Sturgeon Refinery set to begin operations and another petro-chemical company looking to set up shop, creating economic prosperity in the region.
