Town of Vegreville Mayor Tim MacPhee addressed the crowd at the Vegreville and District Chamber of Commerce's A.G.M. with a message of "optimism" last night.

MacPhee says while understandably there's been a cloud of negativity over the community on the heels of the Federal Government's decision to re-locate Vegreville's Case Processing Centre to Edmonton, it's now up to the citizens to shine a light of positivity.

MacPhee adds the Town of Vegreville is still working with both the Federal and Provincial Governments in the hopes of reaching some sort of resolution to help Vegreville to move forward.

MacPhee's comments come after a meeting with business leaders and the Town of Vegreville's Economic Development and Tourism Board.
