A Message from Mayor Ray Bryant
On behalf of Council
, I would like to welcome you to our website and we thank you for your interest in our community.
You will see from the exploration of our website, that the Town of Taber is a viable, vibrant, and growing community. We have much to offer from a business and family recreation standpoint as well as being a great community to retire to and a place to call home.
We have excellent schools, modern recreational and medical facilities; reasonable tax and utility rates; safe neighbourhoods; clean air and water; and affordable housing make us the envy of other communities in North America. Strategically located just thirty minutes east of Lethbridge, Taber is a thriving, progressive town. With all the amenities of a larger city, Taber can offer its residents a quality life with the safety, friendliness and hospitality of a small community. When you combine these features with our competitive retail services and excellent recreational opportunities - Taber has everything residents desire to fully enjoy life. Maybe that is why our residents display such a great sense of community spirit.
The long hours of sunshine make the growing season in the Taber area ideal for agriculture. Potatoes, sugar beets, and - of course - corn are only a few of the products Taber agriculture excels at. A strong, stable economy and our central southern Alberta location and close proximity to the United States are only few reasons why companies like Roger’s Sugar, Lamb Weston, Lucerne Foods, and Hostess Frito Lay are proud to call Taber and area home. In addition to this, we are also a major service area for the oil and gas industry, and now offer a new and growing industry in the servicing of wind power generating facilities.
“Taber is open for business and we will do everything to assist you in meeting your needs.”
As mayor of the Town of Taber, I would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to explore our innovative community. I am sure that once you have been here you will agree that Taber is a great place to grow, to live, and to work.
