Trevor Gough is no stranger to business and economics. Thankfully for Drumheller, he's also service-oriented and let his name stand for membership on the town's newest initiative, the Economic Task Force.

"I was sitting and talking to Fred [Makowecki] one day and, of course, my attachment to Drumheller is one of the primary reasons I let my name stand for pretty much anything here," said Gough. "I'm from Drumheller, I believe in Drumheller and I want to see Drumheller succeed."

Drumheller Town Council has appointed seven people to the Task Force's steering committee, one of whom is Gough. These seven will meet this month to get organized and will appoint sub-committees in the new year.

"At this point in time I'm going to see what is actually been put onto the floor so far," explained Gough. "But I do have some ideas and thoughts that go along with that and we'll have to see whether or not they'll gel with the membership."

More than 40 people submitted their names to help with the task force, something Gough said is telling of the Town's current situation.

"It does say that there's a lot of concern and everybody wants to see some other changes to happen so hopefully that's what we get accomplished here in the next while."
