|Committee Members - LUD - RM of Brokenhead|
The LUD Committee is comprised of:
In the 2010 general municipal election, all three incumbants were appointed by acclamation.
Steven Klaprat - Chairperson
I have lived in the LUD for 18 years with my wife Rita and our three children. I am currently in my eleventh year as Tyndall Curling Club President, and I have coached/instructed junior curling. I have coached soccer and was Vice President of the Beausejour-Brokenhead Soccer Association. I have helped to form and coach a team to bring hardball for teen boys to Tyndall. I am also a member of the Tyndall Eagles Aerie 3386.
I am currently in my third term as a member of the LUD Committee, all served as Chairperson. I have worked with the LUD and Brokenhead council to create a recycling depot in Tyndall. I hope to get the remainder of LUD roads paved within the next four to five years, build a town maintenance garage for repair and housing of equipment and increase resident's awareness of and participation in community groups/events. I would also like to see enhanced and improved communication between residents and the LUD, the RM of Brokenhead and facilities so that all may benefit.
I am a Chartered Accountant and am the Manager of Farmer Programs for the Canadian Wheat Board.
I have lived in Garson since September 1997, happily married with 2 great kids. I have been on the LUD Committee since November 2006. Family is extremely important to me and have been actively involved in my kid's activities, such as dance and baseball. In addition to the LUD, I am also a member of the local Tyndall Eagles, I curl at the Tyndall Curling Club, and am also the treasurer for the Tyndall Curling Club.
My initial goals on the LUD were to improve the street conditions after the water and sewer project, and am proud of the results to date with the majority of streets within Garson and Tyndall during our last term.
The challenge for this term will be to continue to plan for future growth within the LUD and maximize the services we provide within the limited budget of the LUD.
I was born and raised in Tyndall. My family on both sides (Witoski and Chercoe) immigrated to Tyndall and the area in the early 1900s and their main source of income was farming. Most of my family still lives in the general area. My early schooling years were in Garson, Tyndall and Beausejour. My post graduate studies consists of a business administration degree with Red River Community College. I spent my early working years employed with the Royal Bank of Canada and am currently employed with the Federal Government.
