Gretna CAO Michele Sawatzky looks over the Town's budget with out-going Mayor Dennis Loewen


Dennis Loewen will not be submitting his name to the list of mayoral candidates for the Town of Gretna in the upcoming municipal elections.  Loewen, who is wrapping up his first term as the head of council, says his reasons are two fold.

Loewen adds as Mayor he has been part of new development in the town, with new lots and buildings becoming more available. He says he's also had the opportunity to work with great councillors.
Meanwhile, Loewen says relationships with surrounding communities have been positive over the last few years, however challenges still remain. He adds because there is a lot of shared services, Gretna's population doesn't give it the same representation as the other communities. He cites the sunbelt development corporation as one example.

Loewen highlights that Gretna is also part of the R.P.G.A. Planning District, where it does have even representation.
