Mayor Brent Feyter

I was raised in Fort Macleod and involved in a variety of local youth sports and activities. Since graduating in 1997, I worked at a few local businesses and mostly worked with our family business, Structural Truss Systems, designing engineered wood products and helping grow the company. My wife Janey is a stay at home mom with our 5 children, Micah, Sherayah, Levi, Emalee and Maelle.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, being challenged by those who have attained goals and challenges seemingly impossible and spending time with our family.

In living, learning and being challenged by others, I have grown to appreciate the significant role a community has on the development of the family and the success of business. To me, community is a place where people are excited about living and working, a place where we trust each other, celebrate the successes of our fellow citizens and pull together when things get tough. For that reason I ran for a seat on town council and look forward to seeing our community be a great place for families to live, a place for businesses to thrive and working together to accomplish realistic and timely goals.
