Council's Strategic Plan
Council created the 2019-2024 Lac La Biche County Strategic Plan, which outlines their vision for the future of our community. They set five strategic goals to support achieving that vision, including economic development, recreation & culture, social wellness, tourism, and the environment.
Council held a number of open houses in 2018: public feedback informed their vision and choice of goals. This document is due to be reviewed again in 2022, after the current Council's term has ended.
Presenting to Council
Council Meetings and Council Committee of the Whole Meetings are open to the public, except for those portions held in closed session.
