RMWB Council is meeting this afternoon at Edmonton City Hall.
On the agenda are a number of topics including a review of all programs and services, capital budget project options and CAO authority to control the pace and terms of re-entry into Fort McMurray.
Before the meeting, Mayor Melissa Blake spoke at a press conference and thanked the city of Edmonton and all the workers for their hospitality. Blake said much like the Grinch, her heart has grown three times its size.
She says it will be a long haul but she has absolute confidence that perils will be taken care of and the standing buildings give her an anticipation that citizens will be able to return and rebuild.
She closed by saying that we’ll come out of this very long, dark tunnel in a much stronger position.
