BOWDEN — Councillors have found a way to hold their meetings in person in spite of COVID-19 pandemic protocols.

Chief administrative officer Greg Skotheim said initially after the lockdown occurred in March, council met virtually for a couple of months.

Later, some met online while others sat socially distanced in council chambers.

After a while, it was decided to expand the meeting table so the entire council could meet together in one room again.

“We’ve enlarged our table a little bit so we’re kind of doing social distancing,” Skotheim said. “It’s worked out well."
