Mayor’s Message

Find a welcome message from the Mayor of Barnwell.

On behalf of all residents of the Village Of Barnwell and all members of the Village Council, I’m pleased to welcome you to our village.

Situated in southern Alberta, a short 10 kilometres west of Taber and 43 kilometres east of Lethbridge along the Crowsnest Highway, Barnwell — with a population of about 950 — is proud to be one of Alberta’s more rapidly growing communities.

Barnwell is the ideal place to live, with its small-town feel and strong sense of community.

As mayor, I am fortunate to chair a talented group of Village Councillors who, through their varied backgrounds, bring a wealth of wisdom and perspective to the table in shaping the policies that guide our ever-growing community. Together we will strive  to grow our community responsibly and increase access to services while weighing the need to balance budgets and respect the needs of Barnwell’s community members.

On behalf of Village Council and our residents, the Village of Barnwell extends a warm welcome to you as you explore our community.

Thank you,
Del Bodnarek
Mayor, Village of Barnwell
