Non-Binding Question

Council for the Town of Magrath approved a non-binding plebiscite question to be included with the upcoming By-election for the vacant Town Councillor position. The question that will be voted on is:

“The Magrath Golf Course property is owned by the Town of Magrath. Would you be in favour or opposed to the sale of the course to a private party on condition that it remain an 18-hole public golf course?”

In Favour Opposed

Voting will take place on Monday, December 2, 2019 at the Magrath Civic Building (55 South 1 Street West – former Town Hall) from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.

There will be an advance poll on Friday, November 29, 2019 at the new Town Hall (6 North 1 Street West) from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm for those who are not able to vote on election day.

Survey Results

The Town of Magrath thanks all those who responded to the on-line survey that was recently conducted by the Magrath and District Recreation Committee. Council interest in feedback regarding question #7 (Golf Course) was what prompted this initially. The Recreation Committee then decided that it would like to gather information from citizens regarding the current use and priorities of other Town recreation facilities (Questions #1 – #5). The Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) program then requested that their question (#6) be included to gather information in this area as well.

All of the responses that were gathered are for information only and will only be used by those specific boards for further discussion and consideration in their long-range planning sessions.

We have listed the results to all of the questions below for your information.
