The R.M. of Stanley is away at their annual planning session this weekend.

Reeve Art Petkau says a number of items are on the agenda from gravel and roads to drainage to weed control.


However, he says the most important item is the revision of their zoning by-law.


Petkau says their consultants and the highways department will be a part of the session to help with the revisions.


He says it's important to have the meeting out of town as it gets them away from the office and allows them to focus on the issues at hand.


Petkau says this session will be very beneficial to the five new members of council to bring them up to speed on the issues.
