Mayor Craig Snodgrass added a personal note of thanks to outgoing Council members, who received official Certificates of Appreciation for their service.

“We have much to be proud of in High River. While the past term presented many challenges, we’ve stayed the course to ensure priority projects like the Southwest Dike were completed,” said Mayor Snodgrass. “As we begin this new term of Council, I am confident we will remain committed to serving our community and achieve our vision of making a positive difference today, and for generations to come.”
