Cochrane in Brief

Cruise for seniors

Cruise Cochrane is hosting a Seniors Lodge Cruise on May 8 to support Cochrane’s senior citizens. The Seniors Lodge Cruise launched in 2020 as a way to remind Cochrane’s senior citizens that they are on the minds on the individuals in the automotive community, and has become an annual event for the club. This year the event will be bigger than ever, with five local food trucks taking part on-site at the staging area, who will be donating a portion of the proceeds to a local charity. The event will be held at 1 p.m., and will be rescheduled for May 15 should the weather be uncooperative. To register for the free cruise, visit cruisecochrane.com, or Cruise Cochrane on Facebook.

Town seeking public input

The Town of Cochrane is seeking the public’s input on services as an initial step in the development of the 2022 operating budget. The first draft of the budget will be presented to council in October, and the public input gathered now will guide the Town’s administration as they develop the future budget. Town operations pertain to the maintenance and construction of parks and roadways, waste collection, water treatment, emergency services and more. The draft budget will outline the collective goals for short and long-term priorities as indicated by Cochranites. To provide your input, visit letstalkcochrane.ca/budget to complete the survey before May 14.
