County Council

Westlock County council is divided into seven electoral areas called divisions. Each division has a Councillor that has been elected by citizens within the divisional boundaries. The Reeve  and Deputy Reeve are elected from within Council on an annual basis. Each councillor serves a four-year term.

Governed by the Provincial Municipal Government Act, the Council passes bylaws that provide for, develop and maintain a viable municipality. The primary function of the County Chief Administrative Officer is to act as the principal liaison between Council and Administration and to oversee the staff.

Sherri Provencal was raised in Vimy Alberta. Her dad's family has been in the Vimy area since 1912.

Her parents ran the Vimy Post Office, and both drove school bus for over 40 years. Sherri worked in the post office, delivered mail and drove school bus as well. She is honoured to serve her community in Division 1 as Councillor.

Sherri and her son Jesse live in the Division on an acreage where she had an advertising business from her home for 21 years alongside a few other small businesses. She now works in sales with the St. Albert Gazette. She spends her free time planting flowers, loving acreage life, and spending time with family and friends at her dad’s lake house.

Sherri feels that her sales experience and working with people will bring new ideas to the County. Wanting our County to thrive and be a place for our kids to bring up their families is one of the main reasons she put her name in for Councillor. She has always been a people person, willing to help anyone in anyway she can and she hopes her constituents will always feel confident and comfortable in reaching out.
