Mayor and Councillors
How do I address the Mayor and Councillors?
The official designation of the Mayor is to refer to them as "Your Worship," however, "Mayor [Last Name]" is also acceptable. All Councillors can be addressed as "Councillor [Last Name]."
In formal correspondence to Town Council or during an introduction of the Mayor to a group or event, you would address the Mayor as "His/Her Worship the Mayor." After using the formal address once, it is then appropriate to use more general terms.
In a personal introduction, you would address the Mayor as "Mr./Mrs./Miss Mayor" or "Your Worship," and Councillors as "Councillor [Last Name]."
I have a complaint or issue. Who do I talk to about my concerns?
It depends. Sometimes Administrative Staff can assist with an issue, or it may require Council to make a policy decision. If you are unsure, please contact Administrative Staff at 403-223-5500 or email us and we will be able to direct you based on your concern.
To contact someone about your concern, we have multiple options:
Council is responsible for developing and evaluating the policies and programs while setting the direction for the Town of Taber. The Chief Administrative Officer is responsible to the Council of the Town of Taber for the overall administration of municipal operations of the town in accordance with objectives, policies and plans approved by the Council.
If you have a complaint about how the municipal operations of the town are done, contact the Chief Administrative Officer at 403-223-5500 about your concerns.
