Gibbons Town Council had some questions for MLA Colin Piquette.
Road upgrades, program funding, increased traffic and economic grants were all topics brought up in Wednesday's meeting (Feb.14).
"Knowing that he's going to be a champion of these ideas is great. It helps us to move forward in line with what our government is prepared to support," said Gibbons CAO, Farrell O'Malley.
MLA Piquette plans to tackle town concerns like the busy nearby roads, minimum wage affecting the amount of summer students Gibbons can hire and grants for the new energy-efficient ice plant going into the Gibbons rink.
"It was an informative and excellent meeting, he always brings good greetings and messages from the house to us. All of his information that he brings to the legislature has been positive for us," said councillor Darren McCann.
The town was very appreciative of the rural advocate Piquette has been for multiple projects nearby, including intersection changes at Hwy 28A and Hwy 37.
"They're suppose to widen the intersection and put better lights in. That was my main question for him and he gave an answer that it may possibly start this spring," added McCann.
MLA Colin Piquette has represented the Athabasca-Sturgeon-Redwater area since 2015.
