Fine tuning the
Muirfield solution
SHARON MCLEAY
Times Contributor

Wheatland County tasked their plan-
ning staff with a complex puzzle, when
they asked them to find resolutions for the
Lakes of Muirfield Direct Control quanda-
ries that plagued council in 2016.

MONTH
On Feb. 21, staff forwarded a draft bylaw
with six options, amending the Direct Con-
trol 9 bylaw 2007-56. The Feb. 21 agenda
attachments include the draft. Council felt
none of the options really fit the reality of
the Muirfield solution they needed
We probably should be going back
to the land owners and everyone else. If
council is looking for something, please
give us some direction to staff and we
can put something together, bring it for-
ward, and go to first reading and public
hearings. As much clarity as we can give,
so much the better, said Gerry Melenka,
Wheatland County planning manager.

There seems to be a small misunderstanding at the Legion regarding children. Legion Policy
states that ALL children must leave the Canteen by 7 pm. They then can go, with their parents, to
the Main Hall, WHERE THEY MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES!! They must be sitting and under
control of their parents and cannot be running around. Their safety, and that of our patrons, are of
our utmost concern. Children aged 15 and under must leave the Legion by 9 pm. Your cooperation
in this regard is very, very much appreciated. This, of course, does not apply to private functions
although the children in attendance must stay in the main hall, and not go into the canteen.
Verbal abuse against anyone either working or volunteering at the Legion, by anyone, will not
be tolerated, and the offender will be asked to leave the premises. We are all doing our very best
to make your visit a pleasant experience, and sometimes things might not agree with you, but to
take it out on the people working there, is unfair, unkind and very hurtful, and totally unacceptable.
I hope everyone understands this, and be on their best behavior at the Legion. Thank you all for
your kind understanding.
