The City of Lacombe and its Council recognize the need for two-way communication with its citizens. The City of Lacombe has established a practice which will ensure that requests, inquiries or complaints regarding civic affairs are given proper consideration and are dealt in a fair, open and timely manner.
Any complaint against a City employee(s) will be considered in a professional manner and take into account the protection of personal information of the employee(s). Members of the public who submit an inquiry or complaint will receive a written response. Online copies of replies can be found below for the current year or in a yearly archive as well.
Given the public nature of council and committee meetings, an individual writing to council or to the administration of a municipality may have a reasonable expectation that their correspondence, including their name and address, could be disclosed at a public council or committee meeting. Personal information such as telephone numbers, email addresses and any other personal details will be removed from public viewing. To read more about the roles and responsibilities of administration and council in this process, please see the Citizen Request and Response policy.
There are multiple ways that a citizen can engage with council and administration. Council will receive correspondence by written letter, email and through the form below, which will go directly to the Council Liaison.
