Kindersley town councillors have approved a new strategic plan and governance policy near the end of the first year of their term.

Council members passed resolutions to approve the strategic plan and governance policy at a meeting on Sept. 25. Council adopted the strategic plan first after a brief presentation by Bernie Morton, the town’s chief administrative officer (CAO).

“The council strategic plan is your strategic plan,” Morton told the officials. Meetings were held with council to discuss elements of the plan and the administration worked to draft the plan to reflect the direction by council.

He said the plans are often meant to set the strategy for three to four years, and are designed to help guide the administration with respect to the direction set by council. The plan was developed around three pillars indicated by discussions with council, he said. The three pillars are Build Bridges, Smart Spending and Make it Happen.
