Concerning the recent “Open Letter to Mayor Wood and the Red Deer County Council” from Serge Stelmack, Little Swan Agriculture subdivision, and the Advocate article by Paul Cowley with comments from Red Deer County manager Curtis Herzberg:
When did Red Deer County bureaucrats achieve the power to decide things like “there’s plenty of land here that can handle ‘Agriculture subdivisions’ ”?
Councillors are accountable to voters and taxpayers. Red Deer County bureaucrats “may” be drunk with unearned power. If you are a landowner and have had any satisfying or unsatisfying contact with Red Deer County bureaucrats, i.e. planning staff, I encourage you to contact Jim Wood, Mayor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
