Westlock County is a wonderfully vibrant and diverse rural community with incredible opportunity, community spirit and an amazing wealth and breadth of community volunteers. Beginning with leadership from a positivity-charged Council, our entire team is working hard to improve upon what is already a strong and healthy community. I am proud of the remarkable County our community, council and staff have built and worked so hard to cultivate and grow.
We are all looking forward to a new strategic plan in the Spring of 2018 to assist our community in focusing our energies and resources on the goals and priorities that will serve to strengthen our community and ensure that we continue to build upon our successful foundations. As we go through that process together, learn together and work together, we will continue to inspire each other and see great things happen in our community.
There are certainly challenges on the road ahead as we move forward. Working together as a team with shared vision and a willingness to evolve with new and innovative ways of doing business and providing services will well position us to face, embrace and succeed in whatever lies ahead. I encourage you to be involved in your community and contribute your skills and talents to the continued building of this awesome locale we call Westlock County. For you who are already contributing, and there are many, I offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you from the County and encourage you to continue in your involvement, you are very much needed and appreciated.
