Council to work with community on next steps for Anzac Community Hall

 

(Fort McMurray, AB – October 22, 2018) - At Saturday’s Special Council Meeting in Anzac, Council voted to allow a 90-day window for a third-party assessment of the Anzac Community Hall led by the community and approved by the Municipality.

Following the assessment, the Municipality will work with the community on next steps for the facility.

Earlier this month, an engagement was hosted in the community to discuss four options around the remediation of the hall.

Ribbon cuttings in Conklin and Anzac

Besides holding a meeting in Anzac, Council was also busy with two ribbon cutting events on Saturday.

Council joined the hamlet of Conklin and Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo in celebrating the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the Conklin Multiplex in the morning.

Later that afternoon, the new Anzac Fire Hall was officially opened with a ribbon cutting and community BBQ. Residents were able to tour the facility and its fire equipment with members of the Anzac Fire Department.

A dedication to Bo Cooper was included in Saturday’s ribbon cutting event; two plaques were unveiled with Bo’s parents in attendance. Bo was a firefighter with the Fort McMurray Fire Department and former volunteer firefighter with the Anzac Fire Department who passed away from leukemia in 2016.
