The Town of Redcliff hosted their town council meeting for the month on November 27, the second to last meeting for 2023.

Council moved to lease Unit #121, a tractor, to the Redcliff/Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority. It was noted that the Authority recently approved a Litter Picker in their 2024 Budget, which needs to be powered by a tractor unit with similar specifications to the unit in question.

An initial motion was put forward to loan the unit to the Landfill Authority, but was defeated, citing that the unit will depreciate over the year, even with the Landfill Authority being responsible for maintenance and repair.

Ultimately, Council moved to pass the lease, with the understanding that should the Landfill Authority reject the offer to lease it, they will surplus the unit.

The walking paths around Jesmond and the trail south of Kipling will be seeing some improvement, as it was moved to include a 2.5 metre wide asphalt upgrade as part of the 2024 Budget.

A wider trail was briefly considered, but raised concerns as to the possibility of use by golf carts, which would be able to pass each other on the proposed wider trails. This upgrade is projected to cost $266,000.
