Council for the Rural Municipality of Ritchot has announced another round of community tours.

Mayor Chris Ewen says over the next two weeks they will be hitting five communities, discussing a number of issues with local residents.

2018 11 ritchot council(RM of Ritchot council)The tour will stop at the Ile des Chenes TransCanada Centre on December 5th, the Howden Community Hall on December 6th, the Ste. Agathe Cultural Centre on December 10th, the St. Adolphe Pioneer Hall on December 12th and the Grande Pointe Warm-up Shed/ Garage on December 13th. All meetings begin at 7 pm, except for the one in Ste. Agathe which will commence after the Ste. Agathe CDI AGM at approximately 8 pm.

One of the topics that will be brought up at these meetings is recreation. Ewen explains they have a recreation master plan for the entire municipality, with some great development and potential for Ritchot.

Another topic is Internet service. Ewen says this has been his priority the last year.

"I just am going around essentially asking people what do you have for Internet currently and what would you like to see that will make this a more comfortable area to be a part of," says Ewen. "Because at the end of the day Internet is so key, anywhere you live."

The third topic for discussion will be communications. Ewen explains the municipality uses an app for everything from garbage pickup to public hearing announcements and the goal is to sign up more residents at these community meetings.

There is one more topic that is specific to the Howden meeting. Ewen notes there is some road sloping going on in the Howden area because of the river. There will be some discussion on how this problem can be fixed without creating a burden on residents.

Last year's tour drew a crowd of approximately 25 people per stop. Ewen is hoping they can get at least 100 people each night this time around.
