responded as well as

people from Nova

Chemicals and Dow

Chemicals.

They were able to

contain the fire by 7:30

p.m. that night.

The morning of April

26, a couple of departments

were out

conducting some final

clean up and dealing

with hot spots that may

still be present.

Lacombe County Fire

Chief Drayton Bussiere

confirmed the cause of

the fire came from

sparks of a train

passing through the

area.

“We are pretty confident

it was started by a

train,” said Bussiere.

“Exactly how, we’re not

sure but it was a spark

of some kind from a

train.”

Some buildings were

threatened but luckily

were saved from any

damages due to favourable

wind conditions.

Bussiere did wish to

remind the County that

they are under a fire

advisory.

“I’m taking the

opportunity to just

remind everybody that

it is really dry and so

Lacombe County is

under a fire advisory

and we are trying to be

extra cautious,” he said.

He warned against

the dangers of throwing

cigarette butts out the

vehicle window as well

as being ‘extra cautious’

when having campfires

as it is ‘extremely dry

out right now’.

ALIX COUNCIL

Request fulfilled

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Alix village council

was presented with a

request to reimburse a

resident for a repair bill

of $630 after a pipe froze

earlier this year.

The situation acted as

a double edged sword as

council took their time

deliberating the

situation.

The sewer line on

4832 - 42nd St. to 49th

Street has had problems

in the past with their

sewer line freezing, particularily

in 2018, 2016,

and 2011.

MPE has identified

the area as needing a

replacement water and

sewer main line which

has since been added to

the upcoming 2020 capital

budget, intended to

be carried out next year.

The main question

asked was “Why didn’t

they phone the village

office?” as no calls were

made on Sun. March 17

when the situation

happened.

Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Michelle

White also noted in her

report that no video evidence

was provided to

show if the blockage

was on the property

owners side or the

public side, further

determining who would

pay the bill.

Notice of applications

Sharp Hills Wind Project

EDP Renewables SH Project GP Ltd. has filed applications concerning the Sharp Hills Wind Project in the Sedalia area

Proceeding 24401

Applications 24401-A001 and 24401-A002

The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), the independent utilities regulator, will be considering the

Sharp Hills Wind Project alteration applications in Proceeding 24401, as well as a request to review and

vary a condition of the initial project approval. If you feel you may be affected by these applications, you

can provide input to the AUC to review before it makes its decision.

Written submissions are due May 9, 2019.

Privacy

To support an open and transparent process,

information you send to the AUC will be publicly

available through the AUC’s eFiling System. If

there is confidential information you would like

to file, a request must be made in advance of

filing your submission.

In Decision 22665-D01-2018, EDP Renewables SH Project GP Ltd. (EDP) received AUC approval to

construct and operate the Sharp Hills Wind Project.

EDP has now filed applications with the Commission requesting approval of alterations to the

Sharp Hills Wind Project as follows:

• splitting the project into two phases designated as Sharp Hills Phase I and Sharp Hills Phase II

• reducing the number of turbines from 83 to 71

• changing the turbine model from 3.6-megawatt Vestas turbines to 4.2-megawatt Enercon turbines

• adjusting access roads and the collector system

• modifying the transformers at the Sedalia 363S Substation from two 169-megavolt ampere

transformers to one 288-megavolt ampere transformer and one 58-megavolt ampere transformer

As a result of the requested alterations, the project’s capability would be reduced from 298.8 megawatts to

298.2 megawatts. The maximum height of the turbines would be reduced from 200 metres to 197.3 metres.

Please refer to the attached map for the altered layout of the proposed project.

The applications for the alterations have been filed under the Hydro and Electric Energy Act.

EDP also requested that the Commission exercise its discretion to consider a late-filed application for

review and variance of condition 20 of Power Plant Approval 22665-D02-2018, which relates to

19044TA0

post-construction monitoring.

The application for review and variance of condition 20 has been filed under Section 10 of the

Alberta Utilities Commission Act and AUC Rule 016: Review of Commission Decisions.

The Commission will consider the applications for the alterations and the application for review and

variance as part of the same proceeding.

Innovation Centres celebrated

in Forestburg and Castor

Jody Pettigrew

ECA Review

The Battle River Economic

Opportunities Committee (BREOC)

held grand openings of two Battle

River Innovation Centres (BRIC) at

Forestburg and Castor on Fri. April 26.

The centres are intended to be a

community catalyst to change, innovation

and progress by offering

employment support services, programs

and resources for entrepreneurs

and modern workspaces that can be

rented for various purposes.

Kara Spady, coordinator of the

Castor location, welcomed everyone as

she explained the services offered at

the BRIC Centres.

“We want to be a one-stop shop so

people can come to our centres instead

of having to travel to Red Deer,

Camrose or Wainwright.”

Both centres were designed to

mirror each other and offer the same

services to the public.

Cont’d from Pg 1

A village bylaw requests that reimbursement

be made after proof is given

but administration suggested council

give a partial reimbursement due to

the ‘special nature of this case’.

Council was concerned about setting

a precedent but after deliberation

decided to pay half at $315.

They also asked administration to

put a notice on utility bills, alerting

residents that any future issues must

be brought to the public work’s

attention.

Traffic bylaw review continues

Part six of council’s traffic bylaw

review was mostly uncomplicated

material. Acting CAO Tanya Meston

read out the points the bylaw makes

clear and only one of those points was

examined in more detail.

Currently, the bylaw reads “The

CAO is hereby authorized to designate

‘school zones’ and ‘playground zones’

and shall cause such zones to be

marked by signs posted along the

highway or by markings on the pavement

or by signs or lights or both,

Through technology at the centres,

both locations are connected by video

conferencing for the event.

Forestburg Mayor Blaise Young

acknowledged that the Centre is

located on Treaty 6 Territory, traditional

lands of First Nations and Metis

people, before speaking at the event.

“Adversity brings out the best of the

people in rural Alberta” and is

thankful that through BREOC they

“were able to organize and move forward

to lift the doom and gloom.”

Young continued, “I look forward to

these centres being a bright part of our

future; being an asset in our community

and a catalyst for change.”

BREOC is a collaborative partnership

representing the villages of

Forestburg, Halkirk, Heisler, the

towns of Castor and Coronation, and

Flagstaff and Paintearth Counties who

are acting as the managing partner.

This committee was formed in

response to economic changes in the

region to find strategies to encourage

posted or suspended over the

highway.”

Coun. Ed Cole found that the school

zone and playground zone differentiation

can be confusing for drivers so he

suggested they change all school zones

to playground zones.

A playground zone is in effect from

one hour before dawn until one hour

after dusk and has a provincially

slated speed of 30 km/hour.

“School zones are designated and

it’ll be like 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and noon to

1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

“Playgrounds are like 8 a.m. to 9

p.m. What always causes confusion –

I’m going to use Ontario as an example

– every school is a playground zone.

Then there is no doubt.”

“It removes the confusion,” added

Coun. Cole.

Council agreed with their fellow

councillor, informing administration

that they would like to change all

school zones to playground zones.

Coun. Cole also recommended

administration contact Lacombe

County peace officers of the change to

allow residents a grace period.

economic diversification by building

capacity and developing opportunities.

BREOC received $1.75 million last

year from the Alberta Government’s

Coal Communities Transition Fund

(CCTF) to implement transition efforts,

working closely with the government,

Westmoreland Mine and ATCO’s

Battle River Generating Station with a

plan developed by Urban Systems/

Lochaven Management Consultants to

mitigate the impacts of current economic

uncertainties.

Collaborative efforts are being made

by BREOC to work closely with

ATCO’s Battle River Generating

Station and Westmoreland Mine to

implement strategies that will mitigate

some of the economic impact as the

phase out of coal mines and coal-fired

power plants continues.

An emphasis on regional participation

will be an important factor in the

success of these efforts.

Village in strong financial position

Ray Reckseidler

ECA Review

Delburne village council was presented

with the Village’s audited

financial statements by its accounting

firm at its meeting of April 23, 2019.

The net financial assets of the village

for 2018 totalled $1.46 million

showing an increase of $420,000 over

2017.

Council heard from auditor, Justin

Tanner of Gitzel and Company that the

village has a strong cash basis.

“Taxpayers always decry paying

taxes when there is extra cash and no

debt,” said Tanner.

Unanimous approval was given to

Coun. Jeff Bourne’s motion to accept

the 2018 financial statements as

presented.

Coun. Tim Wilson, the village’s representative

on CAEP (Central Alberta

Economic Partnership) informed

council of its economic development

initiative, Business Investment and

Attraction Readiness (BIAR).

Council discussed this initiative

expressing concerns and opted to

accept it for information only.

The initiative is being funded

through Alberta’s Community and

Regional Economic Support Program

(CARES) to assist central Alberta

municipalities to improve their municipal

investment readiness and success

in growing and retaining business

investment.

This initiative is limited to eight

CAEP municipal members on a first

come-first serve basis.

The program would cost the municipality

$5,500 to participate.

“Delburne has not yet designed or

completed its economic plan,” said

Mayor Bill Chandler.

Coun. Darlene Dushanek questioned

whether citizens were really engaged

in economic development.

“If we are not going to use the tool,”

said Wilson, “then let’s not

participate!”

Delburne’s land use bylaw will be

amended due to applications received

for zoning changes.

In particular, there is no zoning designation

for “recreation areas.”

Included in this bylaw should be

parks, arenas, curling rinks, skateboard

parks and baseball diamonds.

Administration will begin the process

by setting up a public hearing to

address these changes.

Fatal rollover on Hwy 599

Coronation RCMP

responded to a single vehicle

rollover on Highway 599

near Range Road 92 Mon.

April 29 at approximately 9

a.m.

An eastbound vehicle was

driving around a curve section

of Highway 599 when it

rolled into the ditch.

Tragically, the driver and

sole vehicle occupant, Jamie

Smith (33) was pronounced

deceased at the scene.

Coronation RCMP, Fire

and EMS remained on scene

for several hours while the

investigation continued.

All contributing factors

related to this collision are

being considered and it

remains under

investigation.

A side-by-side caught fire near Hemaruka Ab. spreading flames to a nearby field on Wed. April 24. Three fire

departments, Special Areas grader, farmers and a water tanker all responded.

ECA Review/Submitted

Special Areas fire departments on

double duty, respond to two fires

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The Special Area Fire departments

of Hanna, Veteran, Youngstown,

Jenner, Cessford, and Buffalo were

busy battling blazes on Wed. April 24

in two separate locations.

The first call came in at 4:11 p.m.,

summoning Hanna, Veteran, and

Youngstown departments as well as

local farmers and Special Areas

graders and a water tanker.

A side-by-side had caught fire near

Hemaruka, Ab. spreading to a nearby

field thanks to leaking fuel and

roughly 50 to 70 kilometre winds.

Special Areas Fire Chief Glen

Durand cautioned that maintenance is

important especially during dry

spells.

“When you’re driving though some

long grass and get some wheat seeds

underneath there and they start to get

hot enough and dry enough they can

combust,” said Durand.

“We stress that you’re maintaining

your equipment and blowing it off.

Make sure there is no dead grass and

brush and twigs laying in underneath

in those pads and guards. Make sure

your vehicle is clean.”

The winds caused embers to ignite

the grass fire down wind.

The firefighters had the fire under

control within a couple of hours but

the landowners kept watch overnight

for any hot spots.

Second call out

The second call came in just 20 minutes

after the first.

This fire occurred at 4:31 p.m. when

a plow wind blew over a trailer while

traveling west on Highway 570 west of

the 884 near Range Road 10-2.

When the trailer blew over onto its

side, it generated sparks which set off a

grass fire down wind of the 570

roadway.

Sixty to 70 kilometre winds were

picking up at the same time as the

incident.

Cessford, Big Stone, Jenner, Hanna

and Buffalo fire crews attended this

call along with Special Areas tankers

and graders.

Over 300 acres of grassland was

consumed.

The fire was close to taking a farmyard

but the owner was quick to disk

the area around preventing the fire

from entering.

“Farmers from the area were

instrumental in containing this fire

from threatening a farm yard,” said

Special Areas Fire Chief Glen Durand.

principal Don Yavis made to the

Morrin Agricultural Society

regarding his idea of a hockey component

in the school.

The idea is in the early stages but

the Ag Society expressed a willingness

to help, said Graham.

Rib Night was sold out and Donna

Peloquin donated everything so any

income from the ticket sales was a

total profit for the Ag Society.

Graham added the Archery Club is

active again and open from January

until June in the curling rink as it is

no longer in use.

April 17 that the fire chief was able to

EDITORIAL

Misplaced faith

in Facebook

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

It’s hard to understand how society

in general trusts Mark Zuckerman,

Facebook’s CEO, more than their democratic

government.

It wasn’t that many years ago when

then-Prime Minister Harper started

dismantling the credibility of data collected

by Statistics Canada by

weakening sample sizes. He argued

long forms shouldn’t be mandatory

because governments can’t be trusted

with our personal data.


It just seems

counter intuitive to

trust private for-profit

over government for

public good.

Statistics Canada at that time had a

worldwide reputation for quality data.

It had a proven track record for producing

objective data through

excellent sampling techniques and

analyses.

Objective statistical information is

vital to an open and democratic

society.

Statistics Canada provides the most

accurate data available to aid elected

officials in estimating expected expenditures

and revenues and developing

sound budgets for its citizens.

Then there’s Zuckerman who uses

our personal data for personal profit.

Facebook’s whole profit model is to

modify our behaviours so that we give

away our most personal of information.

His algorithms, designed by man,

knowingly share personal data with

third party profiteers and influence

peddlers.

Should we not feel violated when

Cambridge Analytica and Aggregate

IQ, a Canadian company, were able to

mine the personal data of

We like your letters.

Keep writing to the Editor.

Our opinion isn’t the only one…it is important that you express your opinion!


OPINION

approximately 600,000 Canadians

through a third party app?

Just because someone on Facebook

took the bait and downloaded the app,

“This is Your Digital Life”, it allowed

these third party operatives to access

the downloader’s personal information

and that of all his Facebook

friends without any of their knowledge

or consent.

For all those who were outraged

that the government collects significant

information via a mandatory

census every 10 years, few even bothered

to ask their Facebook friends

whether they had downloaded this

third party app.

It just seems counter intuitive to

trust private for-profit over government

for public good.

A recent report by the federal and

BC privacy commissioners found that

through AggregateIQ and Cambridge

Analytica, Facebook had engaged in

serious privacy violations including

not receiving consent from Canadians

to use their personal data.

In Canada we have the Personal

Information Protection and

Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

The law states that any commercial

operation (e.g. Facebook) must obtain

consent for the collection, use and disclosure

of personal information.

Facebook’s response to these findings

was essentially, “we don’t agree”

or “stop us if you can”.

They know it will take a protracted

court case to find them guilty and

since they have more money and influence

than our government, they can

litigate forever.

Like drug and tobacco companies,

they, too, have a multi-billion dollar

contingency fund set aside to pay

fines—an acceptable cost of doing

business when industry effectively

controls much of the public and the

politicians.

When we, as a collective society, are

no longer able to discern between

those who we vote to help us (e.g. governments)

versus those who are out to

profit from us (e.g. Facebook), it is no

wonder that democracies are in

decline worldwide and democratic

institutions are under attack on every

front.

VIEWPOINTS

Keep it short…Ask yourself how long you would spend reading an individual letter.

Don’t rant… Nothing turns away a reader’s interest like a misguided, misdirected rant. Don’t put down or name

call other writers. We all have a right to our opinions. Instead, aim for a persuasive, rational argument supported by

facts and figures.

On being edited … Expect editing…and when it doesn’t happen, great. All newspapers reserve the right to

edit. The primary purpose is to ensure a letter is readable While care is taken in the editing process not to impair (or

destroy) a writer’s point of view, a well-formulated letter requires less editing.

Be legible…Not everyone owns a computer but please make handwritten letters legible. If need be, print.

The opinions expressed are not necessarily

the opinions of this newspaper.

End of an era

by Herman Schwenk

On March 30, 2019 the Battle River

Crowfoot Electorial District

Association (EDA) held a regular

board meeting. At that meeting Kevin

Sorenson announced that he would not

be seeking re-election when the next

Federal election is called, which is

expected to take place on Oct. 21, 2019.

Kevin has faithfully served this area

as our Member of Parliament (MP)for

the past 19 years. He first got involved

when he served on the board of the

Reform Party EDA and then became

president of the EDA when

Jack Ramsey was the MP.

He was nominated to be a

candidate for the 2000 election

when Jack Ramsey

stepped down.

On Nov. 27, 2000 he was

first elected as an MP for

what was the Alliance Party

at that time.

PRAIRIEVIEW

During his time as an MP

he was involved in two Schwenk

amalgamations of conservative

parties. The first one was when

the Reform Party amalgamated with

the Alliance Party to become the

Reform Alliance Party and then it was

changed to the Alliance Party of

Canada.

After the formation of this party,

Stephen Harper was elected the leader

of this new party. This still left two

right wing parties. Peter McKay was

the leader of the Progressive

Conservative Party of Canada.

Stephen Harper knew that neither

party could form government without

the other so the cry became “unite the

right”.

After some intense negotiation the

two leaders were able to come to an

agreement to unite the two parties into

the Conservative Party of Canada with

the acronym of CPC.

The agreement became official on

Dec. 7, 2003.

Kevin was elected as an opposition

member in 2000 and 2004. In 2006

Stephen Harper was elected to the first

of his two terms as a minority

government.

In 2011 Kevin was elected as an MP

for the fifth time when the CPC won a

majority Government.

He won again in 2015 but he again

became an opposition member as the

CPC were defeated by Trudeau

Liberals.

During his time as an MP he went

through two electoral boundary

changes and each time the area that he

represented got larger. Rural ridings

due not have the population density

that urban ridings have.

Rural MP’s have more work than an

urban MP due to the large

area that they represent and

MP’s in Western Canada

spend more time traveling

than MP’s in the rest of the

country.

Also, in Kevin’s case he had

one of the largest ridings in

Canada to serve with some

people living all over it.

Kevin was very dedicated to

his responsibility in serving

the people that he

represented.

I doubt if the people of this electoral

district had any idea of the tremendous

amount of time that he spent in representing

their concerns.

He told us at the meeting that he

spent about nine hours a week just

riding in airplanes. It was not just

flying from Edmonton to Ottawa with

the various responsibilities of being an

MP, he was expected to attend functions

all over Canada and often around

other parts of the world.

I am of the opinion that we were fortunate

to have a dedicated person like

Kevin Sorenson for our MP for that

length of time.

I was told that the average length of

time for an MP’s term is six years.

Kevin has, in his last two elections, a

plurality of over 80 per cent of the vote,

the highest of any elected MP in

Canada.

To get that level of support in an

election tells you that he was highly

regarded by his constituents. Enjoy

your retirement Kevin you have

earned it.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB M A y 2'19 7

Yearned for higher education throughout her life

Gwendolyn Victoria Eichhorn Lee, a

long-time resident of Stettler, departed

this world on April 8, 2019 at her home

in Nevis with Jim by her side, four

days before her 70th birthday.

She was born in Edmonton

at the Beulah Home for young

women on April 12, 1949. Soon

after, she was chosen by Emil

and Gwen Eichhorn as their

new daughter, and sister to

Bill and Stan.

Five years later, another

baby girl, Evelyn was chosen

to complete their family.

Gwen attended school in

Stettler and church at St. Lee

Peter Lutheran.

Growing up on the family

farm south of Stettler in the Warden

area, she longed for a broader education

and life experience.

She was fortunate to complete

Grades 11 and 12 in Camrose at the

Lutheran College.

The summer between Grade 11 and

12 she returned home to work at the

Club Café.

It was there that she met Bill Lee

and they were married after graduation

on Nov. 4, 1967.

This new chapter of her life took her

to Halkirk where they bought their

first farm, later taking over Bill’s

family farm.

Then, the babies came, Raymond

Emil Oct. 8, 1969, Angela Catherine

Diana, Nov. 25, 1970 and Jordan

William, Dec. 3, 1971.

Ten years later, Gwen and her children

moved back to Stettler. She began

working for John H. Grant accounting.

They settled in nicely, with many

friends and family close by.

Her amazing parents helped her so

much during these years and extended

family always involved them in

gatherings.

Many good times were had with

cousins from the Kirtley, Shuckburgh

and Eichhorn families.

Gwen was always yearning for a

higher education, so, in the summer of

1980, she moved her family to Camrose

to attend the Lutheran College to

obtain her Bachelor of Arts Degree.

Her dream of a Masters degree took

her to Saskatoon University for the

next few years.

In 1989 Gwen returned to Stettler.

That September she lost her beloved

sister, Evelyn and decided to stay in

Stettler.

Gwen worked for Campbell

Accounting during tax season, then

managed Heartland Bowl until it

changed ownership. Gwen had a passion

for bowling and continued playing

throughout the years.

She then went into retail at Work

World in the mall. An opportunity to

buy this franchise came, so she did,

soon after moving the store to a downtown

location.

When Work World was taken over by

Mark’s Work Wearhouse, Gwen

decided not to buy another franchise

and closed the store.

The next chapter of her life took her

on to real estate. She easily obtained

her license and began working for

Francis Nicoll at

Sutton Landmark

Realty.

Following his

retirement, Lynn

Engel joined the

team. When Lynn

left to pursue her

dreams, Norma

Leslie came to

work.

Gwen was

extremely proud

of her children

and loved them so

much. She was always there to help

and guide them through their adult

years.

She passed on morals, honesty and

integrity and was honoured, by them,

passing on these attributes

to her loving grandchildren.

Gwen always wanted to be

involved and strived to

belong. This made her a

strong member of many

groups. She was an avid

believer in a higher power

which gave her guidance on

her journey of life and new

love.

Gwen began dating Jim

Ainsworth and eventually

moved to their home in

Nevis. She finally felt truly at home

and loved him so much.

Gwen loved to travel. She experienced

time in Maui, Mexico, Costa

Rica and many trips to Victoria.

Through her involvement with

Sutton Landmark Realty broker, Neil

Stevens, she was able to experience

South Africa.

She saw firsthand how AIDS

affected the suffering communities

and what little they had to protect

themselves.

Many trips were made with Jim,

including the Yukon, Comox,

Vancouver and Victoria. They travelled

to Ft. McMurray to see Janaya,

Calmar to visit Kayla and James,

Calgary to visit Carma, Jon, Nolan and

Daria and Jeri.

They were thrilled to go see Isaac,

Ava and Harper in various places as

they played hockey and ball. Ariel and

Holly welcomed them to their new

home in Red Deer.

They were especially honoured to

represent Stettler in Alabama for

Eastern Star and Atlanta, Georgia for

Rotary. She always enjoyed her meetings

with the Warden Ladies and being

involved where needed.

Gwen’s family was so precious to

her. Many gatherings were enjoyed at

Angela’s with all her family.

Gwen influenced many people in

her lifetime. Her wisdom, love and

honesty will be treasured by all who

knew her.

Gwen is survived by her loving

family: partner Jim Ainsworth of

Nevis; children: Ray Lee of Sylvan

Lake, Angela (Mike) Blackmore of

Stettler and Jordan Lee of Erskine;

grandchildren: Kayla (James)

Vanderleest of Calmar, Janaya Lee of

Fort McMurray, Jeri Blackmore of

Calgary, Ariel Blackmore of Red Deer,

Holly Blackmore of Red Deer, Isaac

Lee of Erskine, Ava Lee of Erskine and

Harper Lee of Erskine; Jim’s daughter

Carma (Jonathan) King of Calgary and

their children Nolan and Daria;

brothers Bill (Lillian) Kirtley of

Stettler and Stan Eichhorn (Sharon

Adamson) of Stettler; nieces, nephews,

other family members and many dear

friends and associates.

Gwen was predeceased by her parents

Gwen and Emil Eichhorn; sister

Evelyn Gullickson and first born

infant son, Leonard Lamont Lee.

A celebration of Gwen’s life was held

on Fri. April 12, 2019 with Rev. Ross

Helgeton officiating. Gwen was laid to

rest at Lake View Cemetery, Stettler,

Quiet zones for rail crossing

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

A paramedic living in Bashaw has

requested council on Thurs. April 18

looking into a quiet zone for rail crossings

within town limits.

He and others in the same occupation

take up residency at the old cheese

factory close to the tracks.

The medics spend four days at a

time living at the station.

“While we often get to sleep at night

that is not a guarantee and we often

end up working throughout the night

and attempting to catch up on sleep

when we can during the day.

“As you can imagine, living next to

the tracks when the whistle is blowing

at all hours (and does) causes significant

interruptions to our sleep at any

time of the day or night.

“The wrong combination of calltiming

and train-timing can leave us

exhausted by the end of a tour,” said

Andrew Grimes in his request letter to

council.

A quiet zone

requires trains

entering the area

refrain from

using their horns

when passing a

crossing within

town limits and is

something that

many other communities

currently adopt

for the sake of

their resident’s

peace.

The cost of purchasing

two

warning systems

or gates may be

required in order

to do this as well

as any operating

costs attached as

well.

Council agreed

to have administration

seek more

detail as to what

this quiet zone

requires as per

costs and how it

could possibly be

set up for the

town’s two

crossings.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB M A y 2'19 11

Stettler Economic Housing Strategy leads to assessment

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

The Town of Stettler’s 2018 Strategic

Goals identified an economic development

plan as it’s fourth priority.

As a result, an economic development

committee was formed to move

the action items forward.

One of the target discussions of this

committee is identifying a variety of

housing needs within the community.

Although staff can see trends in the

real estate market they have found it is

difficult to attract housing or condo

developers without substantial data

and reporting identifying the gaps in

the community.

The County of Stettler Housing

Authority has budgeted

$10,000 to have a seniors

focused Housing Needs

Assessment completed

in 2019.

At their regular

meeting held on Tues.

April 16, council

approved the partnership

with the County of

Stettler Housing

Authority to jointly issue

a request for proposals

for a housing needs

assessment for

the Town of

Stettler and

authorizes $10,000

from existing

funding within

the 2019

Operating

Budget.

In meeting

with Betty

Tschritter, a discussion

ensued

regarding a partnership

with the

Town of Stettler to expand the scope of

the assessment to an inclusive look at

the housing continuum including but

not limited to homelessness and special

needs housing, affordable rental

housing, rental market housing and

the owner market housing.

Although grant funding for the

assessment itself is known to be challenging

there is confidence from

administration that grant funding

may be available for action items identified

through the housing assessment

particularly on the affordable and

seniors housing spectrum.

The scope of the housing assessment

will focus on the need for demand for

subsidized housing, owner market

housing, rental market and find gaps

KNEEHILL COUNTY COUNCIL

12 M ay 2'19 Ha NNa /CORONa TION/STETTLER, a B. ECa REVIEW

New business parking lot sparks concern

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Sweet Haven Barn, a relatively

new business in the

county near Huxley, has

asked council to consider

changing the land use bylaw

to allow for a parking lot on

their property.

Owners Carl and Tanya

Scheunert have applied to

redesignate an additional

three acre portion of their

property to have a parking

and camping space to better

accommodate guest

requests.

This was not contemplated

in the original

application, however, the

couple wanted to create an

alternative to avoid the

potential for drinking and

driving and parking along

the range road near their

home.

Strict policies have also

been put in place to avoid

disturbing the neighbours

with loud noises.

The subject parcel is

bound by Range Road 245 on

the east and is located one

mile north of Highway 587.

The applicants have

already redesignated a two

acre area and have constructed

a 6,560 square foot

building as an venue for

events including weddings

and family reunions with an

approximate capacity of 250

people.

After a public hearing,

council found the project to

be beneficial as it would help

create economic diversity

and attract visitors through

tourism and services.

The public hearing did

have some pushback from

neighbours as Ernie and

Marjorie Scheunert sent in a

letter opposing the development

as well as saying their

piece at the public hearing

on Tues. April 23.

“As taxpayers in this

county, are we allowed any

consideration in this decision

before or are we

dismissed again as unimportant?”

said the couple in

PAINTEARTH COUNTY

Fire by-laws reviewed

Terri Huxley

ECA Reviewed

Administration recommended

costs billed by fire

providers be equal to costs

billed to benefactors of the

fire protection

services in order

to minimize costs

to county taxpayers

as a

whole.

Once the bill is

sent, the person

or corporation

can come to

council to try and

appeal the bill by

making their

case.

Council may

then look at certain

criteria to

see if the bill

should be eliminated,

paid out or

subsidized.

“We believe

everyone should

start with that

first for various

reasons. It brings

some context into

the discussion,”

said Chief

Administrative

Officer (CAO)

Michael

Simpson.

Council passed

first reading of

the bylaw with

hopes they can

hear from the

public on this

potential decision

along with a

number of other

changes to the

bylaws.

Administration

began review of

the Fire Ban

Bylaw and Fire

Permit Bylaw

and determined

a gap existed in

the County’s ability to

enforce and issue violation

tickets for persons or corporations

that cause or

contribute to fires within

the County.

their letter to council.

A taxpayer by the name of

Denise Radomski sent in a

letter of concern as to what

the safety would be as well

as regulations for visitors.

The owners did admit that

as a new business there

would be growing pains

they must endure as like

any other business, in their

rebuttal to the opinions

expressed.

For campfires, they

explained that provisions in

their contract with the wedding

couple includes a no

open flames policy, and

noise abatement.

The parking lot will have

room designated for emergency

personnel to have

easy access.

Kneehill Medical Clinic

rent subsidized

After a closed session,

council approved to subsidize

10 per cent of the

Kneehill Medical Clinic as

they have acknowledged

there are some issues with

the building.

The clinic will be paying

90 per cent of the rent from

May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020.
