Building Permit Statistics

The Planning & Economic Development staff compile a building permit statistics report each month. 

Food Trucks
It is important from the perspective of the Town of Taber to support both the Food Truck industry and the traditional restaurant industry by providing rules and regulations that provide balance. This is becoming increasingly more important as food trucks have become a popular way to provide and procure food service for residents of a community in a different format than the traditional restaurant. 

The Town has compiled Food Truck rules and regulations from other municipalities around Alberta into a Food Truck Report.   This report will help administration evaluate current and proposed rules and regulations for the Town of Taber.

A survey on the current and proposed regulations was circulated with anyone willing to participate to help administration finalize their proposal to Council.  The survey was open from July 4th to July 10th and received a total of 284 participants. You can read the detailed comments in the link below:
