Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen was back on the show with me this morning to give us a rundown of Banff council happenings. Monday’s meeting was an opportunity to honour Chip Olver who has now been on Banff council for two decades! They also looked at 2013 financials and discussed Cave Avenue reconstruction which is slated to take place this spring/summer. We also talked about the parking survey, and while it’s an option the town is definitely considering Mayor Sorensen wanted to stress that it’s not a done deal.
