The City of Lacombe is pleased to announce that its 2018 Year in Review, the annual report to the community, is available as a digital publication on its website. A limited quantity of print copies are available for pickup at City Hall.

“On behalf of Council and staff, I am pleased to present this publication to our residents and stakeholders,” said Mayor Grant Creasey. “Council is a year and a half into our term, and already we have implemented a number of strategies to guide Lacombe forward to sustainable growth and prosperity.”

The Year in Review highlights some of the many accomplishments of the municipality in 2018: from undertaking major construction projects to maintaining and enhancing our built infrastructure, laying the foundation for future growth through responsible planning, and adding to the richness of our community by hosting a number of community events and festivals. The report also includes City department and agency highlights.

“It is well-known in municipal circles that along with a diverse economy, community pride and citizen opportunity, one measure of a thriving community is a municipal workforce of talented and dedicated people,” said Chief Administrative Officer Matthew Goudy. “It has been my privilege to work with Council and a team of employees who work hard to make Lacombe a healthy, safe and welcoming community, and I am pleased to share the highlights of the past year with residents.”
