MEET THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL

DSC_0347MAYOR LORNE YOUNG
I have lived in the town of Elk Point for 15 years but the Elk Point area has been my home for my entire life. After retiring from 33 years of teaching and administration with St. Paul Education, I was elected to Elk Point Town Council in October 2013. Now in my second term on Council I hope to continue to serve my community as we look for ways to improve the lives of our residents.

My job is to hear, see, and speak for my communities needs and wishes. To be an advocate for change and growth while displaying a respectful, honest, and dependable leadership role. This term is my second time in council and I hope to be able to help our small community achieve success, growth, and prosperity.

Elk Point is a small rural town with an atmosphere like "CHEERS"? - Where everybody knows your name! I have lived here for 21 years, had gotten married to my husband Andrew in that time and had 2 children who are now 16 and 14. I love the small town living and it is situated right in the middle of Vermilion/Bonnyville/St. Paul. So; our little Bermuda triangle zone is no more than a 50/40/30 minute drive to larger towns for shopping. It takes an hour to get to Lloydminster, and two hours to drive to Edmonton to take in a pleasure weekend or party it up attending a concert. Life is good and I wouldn't want it any other way; cheers!

I am a Collage graduate from Lakeland College, Lloydminster campus Class of 1997; with a diploma as a Rehabilitation Practitioner in the field of study of Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Professions. This job role constituted being a community disability services practitioner who help's people who have disabilities fulfill their goals as participating members of the community. Working as part of a team, community disability services practitioners implement plans that are designed to assist adults, youth and children develop their abilities and expand their opportunities. Who in turn also provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and audiology services for adults and children.

What I Do Now...
I am a Financial Advisor/Mutual Fund Investment Specialist with the Servus Credit Union, St. Paul branch and I have been in the banking industry for over 15 years. I open/close/maintain accounts, I apply for and process applications of all sorts, I handle Loan's/Mortgages/HELOC's, Investments, MasterCard applications, Wealth Referrals, do Small Business Banking, and Agricultural Referrals. It’s a one stop shop when you come through the door and I handle all situations from the time a person is born to when the time comes and they pass away.

Councillor Tim Smereka
I would like to welcome you to the town of Elk Point site:
My entire life has been spent here in our wonderful community. I can’t say enough about our great town in North Eastern Alberta. I am happily married and currently raising the next generation of Elk Pointers. With camping, hunting and fishing at the top of my “Do whenever possible” list. You can not find a better area to live in.

I have spent 30+ years in the oilfield industry starting out as a general labourer and moving up to managing my own company for over the past 5 years. Majority of experience has been in the oilfield services aspect but spent a number of years in the industrial waste disposal industry working in Sales.

My goal in council is to help build a stronger community. To see diversification in industry and with what opportunities our citizens have available to them.

Please look into our town. And take some time to spend to enjoying what this wonderful area has to offer. I look forward to you visiting us soon.
