BASHAW COUNCIL

Sea can approved by

R

Bashaw town council

for local business

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Bashaw town councillors approved a

local business owner’s request to

replace sheds with a sea can shipping

container storage unit. The decision

was made after a public hearing held

during the Oct. 24 regular meeting of

council.

Mayor Rob McDonald opened the

public hearing to consider a bylaw to

amend the town’s land use bylaw.

Town Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Theresa Fuller presented councillors

with a land use bylaw (LUB)

amendment which accommodated

Doug and Mary Jane Heck’s request to

place a 40 foot sea can on a commercial

property in town.

During the discussion Fuller noted

the application in question involved

the Home Hardware business located

in downtown Bashaw.

“Currently they have two sheds

placed on the rear property line and

would like to replace them with an 8

foot by 40 foot sea can,” stated Fuller’s

memo to council.

“The previous two sheds were too

small to require a development permit

or were placed prior to the current

bylaw.”

Fuller elaborated on the fact the sea

can would be placed on the property

line.

“In the central commercial district

the rear setback requirement is six

metres and the LUB amendment proposes

to eliminate the setback,” stated

Fuller’s memo. “A variance cannot be

granted, due to the amount of

R

variance, and (the LUB) obligates

applicants to meet setback requirements

within the district for accessory

buildings over 10 square metres.”

The CAO noted the advantage to

placing the sea can on the property

line was flexibility for the property

owner.

She noted some disadvantages

existed as well, including runoff,

melting snow landing on another property,

access issues if the site in

question doesn’t have an adjacent road

and possible encroachment if there’s

an overhang, which in this case there

wouldn’t be.

Fuller did point out in her memo

however that the Heck’s request is

commonly found in some commercial

and industrial districts. Issues such as

runoff and melting snow can also be

addressed by agreement and firefighting

concerns could be addressed

through the Alberta Building Code.

As the amendment had to be done

through a bylaw Fuller noted the

Heck’s request was publicly advertised

for two weeks in the ECA Review newspaper

and the town didn’t receive any

submissions from the public.

Mayor McDonald asked if any

member of the public present at the

hearing wished to comment on the

bylaw and no one responded. He closed

the public hearing.

Councillors then debated the

request.

Coun. Bryan Gust stated he had no

concerns about the application and

moved second reading which passed

unanimously. Councillors then unanimously

passed third reading which

approved the amendment to the LUB.

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Large house, workshop, sea can application approved

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

The County of Stettler

Municipal Planning

Commission (MPC) approved a

development permit for a large

home, ancillary building and

sea can after discussion about

the metal storage container’s

possible aesthetics. The decision

was made at the Oct. 26, 2022

regular MPC meeting.

The MPC is comprised of

members of county council and

chaired by Coun. James

Nibourg.

County planner Rich

Fitzgerald presented councillors

with a development permit

application from James and

Vanessa Stuckless for property

located at Lot 7 Blk 1 Plan 982

1794 which according to the

memo included 7.94 acres of

land with the intention of developing

a detached dwelling of

2,645 square feet, an oversized

2,520 square foot workshop and

a 40 foot sea can.

“The applicant is proposing to

construct a 2645 sq. ft. detached

dwelling with attached garage,

and an oversized ancillary

building (2520 sq. ft.) to be used

as a workshop and storage.

“The applicant is also proposing

to use a 40 foot sea can

for additional storage which is a

discretionary use in a multi-lot

subdivision,” stated Fitzgerald

in his memo to the board.

“The ancillary building (oversized)

is also a discretionary use

in the country residence


agricultural district. The proposed

development exceeds all

the setbacks as set out in the

country residence agricultural

district in the county land use

bylaw (LUB). Water will be provided

by an an onsite cistern

with water being hauled in.

Wastewater will be handled by

an onsite septic tank, and leach

field, not an open discharge.

“Access is provided via a

county road Trestle Court, but

there is no existing approach to

the property that meets county

standard so a condition has

been added that this will be a

requirement of the permit.

The proposed location of the

approach has clear site lines in

all directions. The applicant is

also proposing to use an RV as a

dwelling unit during the construction

stage, and only until

the dwelling is finished,” stated

the report.

During discussion Fitzgerald

stated that the applicants have

stated they are pondering possibly

opening up a greenhouse

in the future, but the planner

noted that was not included in

the current application.

Chair Nibourg asked if there

was a chance the oversize workshop

could end up being a

residence for someone. Nibourg

stated the county has seen

instances where workshops are

built and then people move into

them to live there.

Fitzgerald responded the proposed

residence included in the

application must be valued

around $500,000 and thought

with that much investment it

was unlikely the workshop

CORONATION COUNCIL

Hiring campground attendant

Treena Mielke

ECA Review

Coronation town council has plans

to hire a new campground attendant

and is looking into the pros and cons of

contracting out the position or hiring

another town staff for the job.

Councillors discussed their options

at the Oct. 24 council meeting.

Coronation Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Quinton Flint brought

the matter up under new business,

noting that Jim Dafoe, the previous

campground attendant, had given his

notice.

“The administration wishes Mr.

Dafoe well on his new adventures and

thank him for his 12 years of dedicated

service,” he said in his report to

council.

“In Mr. Dafoe’s 12 years as the campground

attendant, he helped to grow

the campground and helped to ensure

it was prosperous.

“Mr. Dafoe was a significant part of

the infrastructure development and

the construction of new campsite

stalls taking it from 11 stalls to 52, as

well as the construction of the new

campground shower house.”

Flint told council that the job

description for the position of campground

attendant needs to be updated

and council needs to decide if it wants

to go with a contract position or hire

an individual as a town staff.

He said a contracted position would

mean the town would not be required

to pay overtime. The town would also

not be responsible for paying payroll

benefits.

The contractor would be responsible

for overseeing the job and ensuring it

was completed satisfactorily.

would be used as a residence. In

fact, he noted the residential

development permit would have

been already approved by staff

except for the workshop and sea

can parts of the application,

which required MPC approval.

Board member Ernie Gendre

noted there was no approach yet

and asked who would build the

new one. Fitzgerald responded

that’s a condition of the development

permit and is up to the

applicants to complete.

Gendre, looking at photos

provided by Fitzgerald, stated

there didn’t appear to be a ditch

in the required location.

Fitzgerald responded there isn’t

a ditch but work will be

required to move some topsoil

and install gravel to ensure

water runs towards the applicants

property and away from

the road.

Board member Justin

Stevens, also looking at the

photos, wondered what was

located at the far end of the

property. Fitzgerald answered

there was clay hauled in for an

old road project which was then

used to build a berm.

The planner stated the berm

may have been intended to separate

properties and added it’s

been there for at least 10 years,

has no weeds on it and is mowed

regularly by the property

owners.

Stevens asked that a condition

be added to the

development permit that any

sea can placed on the property

be aesthetically pleasing.

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Veterinarian numbers could be tripled by 2025

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

The County of Stettler heard a provincial

government expert state that

the number of new veterinarians

entering the industry from one Alberta

university could triple by 2025.

The report was made at the Oct. 26

regular Agriculture Service Board

meeting.

The board is comprised of members

of county council and was chaired at

that meeting by Coun. Dave Grover.

Board members heard a presentation

by Dr. Keith Lehman of the office

of the chief provincial veterinarian, a

department of Alberta Agriculture. At

the end of the presentation councillors

were invited to ask questions.

Coun. Justin Stevens asked if the

general impression that there is a

shortage of veterinarians in Alberta is

accurate.

Lehman answered there are shortages

everywhere, all sectors, not just in

the agricultural sector. He suspected

that just about every vet clinic across

Canada would like to have more staff.

Lehman stated that vet shortages in

urban areas may be affected by the fact

more people were interested in owning

pets recently, thus increasing the

demand for vet services.

Lehman also stated higher work

loads resulting in burn out may have

caused more people to leave the

industry over the past few years.

Board member Grover asked if more

new vets could be trained. Lehman

answered the Alberta government is

doing that by allocating more money to

the University of Calgary, which has

boosted the number of veterinary students

from 30-ish to 55, and with

planned new infrastructure could hope

to increase that to 100 by 2025.

Lehman gave board members an

update on high path avian influenza

and other serious agricultural diseases,

while discussing the different

roles the provincial and federal governments

play in controlling diseases.

He noted that when a serious outbreak

is encountered, the first step is to

confirm it, then quarantine the area,

make reports to trade partners, watch

for spread of the disease, stamp out the

disease, look at compensation, engage

in long term surveillance and lastly

inform trade partners the outbreak is

eradicated.

Board member Larry Clarke asked

about disposal of carcasses this past

summer; he noted there have been

complaints based around outdoor

composting.

Lehman responded that there are

setbacks that have to be followed when

composting carcasses and considerations

such as leeching that must be

watched and noted that there is oversight

of such activities; complaints

about them could result in an

investigation.

Clarke stated large numbers of

decomposing carcasses can smell very

badly and Stettler County sometimes

gets complaints despite the fact the

municipality has no authority over

these things. Lehman answered the

county should forward all complaints

to Alberta Agriculture.

Lehman spent considerable time discussing

avian influenza’s different

strains and how people, swine and

poultry can be affected. He said the

reservoirs of the virus are waterfowl

and shore birds which transmit it to

farms, which then spreads through

fecal, oral or aerosol means. Then environmental

reservoirs such as fomites

and mechanical factors come into play.

Lehman stated high path avian

influenza is eradicated from most

developed countries, while low path

avian influenza still occurs worldwide.

He explained that this past summer’s

avian influenza began in Europe about

a year ago, as the virus was solidly

present there. It winged its way to

North America, and was detected

between December 2021 and early

spring, 2022. By March it was past the

Carolinas on the east coast, moved into

the central United States and by April

the first Alberta cases were reported.

He stated that as of Oct. 20, 2022 53

Business licence fee to remain the same

Brenda Schimke

ECA Review

The business licence fee will remain

at $10 for 2023 following a an unanimous

motion at the regular Delburne

council meeting on Oct. 11, 2022. It

was felt the economic conditions for

businesses hadn’t improved that

much.

When queried, Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Karen Fegan said that

the reduced fee brings in about $1,500

versus $4,500 with the higher fee. She

also said that it makes more of a difference

to a small businesses’ budget

than to their municipal budget.

Changes at the

Chamber of Commerce

Tim Wilson’s resignation as president

was accepted at the oct. 24

Chamber of Commerce meeting, and

three people were appointed as

interim officers until the Annual

General meeting on Nov. 15, 2022.

agreed.

The Chamber also asked that the

KNEEHILL COUNCIL

Kneehill County cancels gas co-op taxes

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Kneehill County, in a move that one

councillor referred to as a “best practice,”

cancelled tax bills for two gas

co-ops that operate within the municipality’s

boundaries. The decision was

made at the Oct. 25 regular meeting of

council.

Marika von Mirbach, acting manager

of financial operations, presented

a request to council to waive tax bills

for two gas co-ops that work within

Kneehill’s boundaries.

“In June 2016, council approved

Policy #16-15 which gave direction to

cancel taxes to the gas co-ops operating

within the county,” stated von

Mirbach’s memo to council.

“There are two gas co-ops that this

policy applies to, and which have historically

had their taxes cancelled by

council.

“The taxes for Harvest Hills Gas

Co-Op Ltd. total $2,604.70 on eight tax

roles. The taxes for Crossroads Gas

Co-Op total $1,000.70 on four tax roles.

“Included within the above amounts

is $579.60 in requisitions

which are

required to be forwarded

to the

applicable parties

regardless of

whether taxes are

cancelled. This

can be accommodated

within the

approved operating

budget

allocation for cancelled

taxes,”

stated the memo.

Von Mirbach

stated the county

policy in question

recommends this

item be brought

before council

annually and

involves 12 tax

rolls between the

two

organizations.

Reeve Jerry

Wittstock

acknowledged the

dollar value of

this request was

traditionally not

very high.

“I’m sure we’re

not into the hundreds

of millions

of dollars here,”

said Wittstock.

Coun. Ken

King clarified

that certain requisitions

collected

on these property

taxes, such as


education tax, still have to be forwarded

to the provincial government.

Von Mirbach confirmed that was

correct.

Coun. Laura Lee Machell-

Cunningham wanted to clarify that

there was no method for the county to

use to reclaim the tax revenue in

question.

Reeve Wittstock interjected to note

the tax rolls listed are gas lines that

run throughout Kneehill County and

they belong to the two non-profit gas

co-ops listed.

Wittstock stated the gas co-ops

serve the residents of the county and

while Kneehill could probably send

the two gas co-ops a property tax bill,

it’s possible those costs would just be

passed along to Kneehill residents.

Wittstock further clarified that he

believed the tax rolls in question were

actually metering sites which don’t

take up much space.

“It’s just a courtesy we extended

years and years and years ago,” added

Wittstock.

Coun. Faye McGhee stated she

believed cancelling the gas co-op’s

property taxes should be considered a

KNEEHILL COUNCIL

Second extension for

undeveloped subdivision

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Kneehill County councillors

approved the second consecutive one

year extension for an undeveloped

subdivision, but heard a staff recommendation

this be the last extension.

The decision was made at the Oct. 25

regular meeting of council.

Councillors heard a report from

planner Brandy Hay-Morgan who

stated the owner of subdivision

KNE200148 had requested a one year

extension to the deadline to complete

subdivision requirements, which

would be, if approved, the second consecutive

extension the county has

granted for this application.

“KNE200148 is a subdivision from

2020 relating to a portion of the NW

8-33-23 W4M,” stated Hay-Morgan in

her memo to council.

“Landowners are given a year from

the date of approval in which to meet

the conditions of approval. If the conditions

are met, the subdivision

approving authority is required to

endorse the subdivision to allow registration

at land titles.

“The first extension for this file was

granted by council until Oct. 24, 2022.

The landowner is applying for a

second extension, to allow for the

response from Alberta Environment

regarding the dugout for watering.

“There are multiple factors involved

with this specific subdivision. A different

engineering firm was employed

to take over the file. Additional environmental

studies have been done to

ensure the land can be used for the

proposed use in the future.

“The applicant is also changing the

current septic system in place to allow

for more land to be subdivided out in

the process.

“Due to the length of time required

for a response from Alberta

Environment and the changes in provincial

government and the current

season, an extension for this subdivision

file is required for the applicant to

finalize the conditions set out in the

approval on Oct. 22, 2020.

“A typical extension is granted for

one year, in this case the extension

would be granted for another year

until Oct. 23, 2023 (First extension

expired Oct. 22, 2022; second extension

is asking for Mon. Oct. 23, 2023, as the

22nd of October 2023 falls on a

Sunday).

“This would be the final extension

allowed. If at the date of the second

extension, KNE200148 is not finalized,

a new subdivision application will be

required and process to start from the

beginning,” added Hay-Morgan’s

memo.

The planner noted the Municipal

Government Act (MGA) gives councillors

the authority to grant as many

one year extensions as they wish.

Coun. Ken King stated he understood

the subdivision would be a

benefit to the community so he moved

that the request be granted.

Coun. Faye McGhee asked why the

county only grants one year extensions,

and not two years.

Hay-Morgan stated the MGA uses

the term one year to complete all subdivision

conditions, “...and typically

most people do.”

Hay-Morgan added that it’s

uncommon for the county to receive a

request for a subdivision extension but

it does happen and when it does it’s

usually related to approvals from

other levels of government.

“We’re just following the MGA,” said

Hay-Morgan.

McGhee asked if councillors could

grant two years, to which Hay-Morgan

responded she wasn’t sure, but mentioned

again that councillors can

grant as many one year extensions as

they like.

Coun. King chipped in that he felt

one year extensions were best for two

reasons, including that it’s easier for

the county to keep track of what’s

going on with the application, and secondly

that having the shorter deadline

might be useful in lighting a fire under

other levels of government.

“I think one year is good in this

case,” said King.

Councillors unanimously approved

the request to grant a one year extension

for the subdivision.

“Hopefully a year from now we’re

not doing this one again,” said Reeve

Jerry Wittstock.

Society presents

interesting future

Dear Editor,

Badlands Historic Society Salute to

Agriculture presents an interesting

future.

Plans to move forward were the

focus of a Clam Chowder Night at

Drumheller Jurassic Inn Oct. 12.

Reeves of adjacent counties and the

Special Areas met with museum staff

and considered the benefits of an

annual regional 4-H rally point as one

answer to some coming issues.

One is the need to have new membership

as older members retire. A

second benefit would be the exposure

to and publicity spread, as the visitors

returned to their homes.

The Ag-Salute program would invite

and challenge our young visitors to

write and submit stories to the

museum of their home areas through

writing, photos, videos, art and crafts.

This would broaden our offerings to

all Albertans. They would also be

encouraged to use required 4-H public

speaking skills to their families and

regional audiences.

The natural attractions in each of

Kneehill, Wheatland, Starland and

Special Areas are not only unique but

of high trust value.

pints, ranching projects and the vast

grasslands all have huge interest for

keen young agricultural leaders of the

near future.

The 4-H Rally program would be a

winner for the Salute to Agriculture

Museum but also to tourism, economic

opportunities and general interest.

The museum itself is faced with the

inherited problem of an expensive roof

repair. This has delayed the opening

of the building. Until it can be open

and functioning there is a credibility

problem. Larger donors such as fertilizer

firms, Ag-Insurance companies

and banks will be probable donors

only to an operating concern.

Likewise grant programs are largely

based on operating businesses and

non-profit groups. With these problems

facing museum members, an

appeal for $5000 from each of the adjacent

counties and the Town of

Drumheller was made.

Encouraging remarks were heard

from the invited reeves. Their councils

will have to give the final approval.

All agreed that there is great value in a

continued liaison between Drumheller,

the bordering counties and the Special

Areas.

We share many common interests.

Stan Solberg

Drumheller, Alta.

Emergency Act, simply put

Dear Editor,

Emergency Measures Act enacted or

put in place was wrong.

The act came down on the Freedom

Convoy because of a lack of leadership

by the Federal Government and our

Prime Minster.

Because no one in the Liberal government

or the Prime Minister made

an apparent or visible attempt to meet

with people from the convoy; the result

was a lengthy stay by some Freedom

convoy members on the city of Ottawa,

the capital that serves every

Canadian.

The Freedom Convoy consisted of

law-abiding Canadians who wanted to

make their concerns known to government

and the Prime Minister in

charge, Justin Trudeau. This is the

fact of the matter.

After all the effort made by the

convoy members – it appeared that no

one in the Federal Government made a

proper attempt to dialogue concerns of

the convoy.

Had the Prime Minister or Prime

Minister’s Office (PMO) made it clear

at or before the arrival time of the

convoy that there would be a meeting

set up consisting of relevant government

members, the PMO, the Prime

Minister and representative members

from the Freedom convoy and the several

additional groups in the convoy;

and that this meeting would be held in

a safe and orderly fashion; the convoy

would have left Ottawa shortly after

that meeting of substance and good

will had transpired.

I am sure this meeting would have

been expected and accepted by the

Canadian public, the Ottawa police,

and the convoy.

The Government and the Prime

Minister shirked their huge duty of

‘leadership responsibility’ to all the

law-abiding citizens in the convoy and

Canadian citizens across this country.

Were the police blindsided when it

became apparent that the Prime

Minister and his government were not

going to have meaningful discussions

with the convoy?

Yes, to me it is obvious. By the time

Canada’s ‘leader’ displayed reluctance

to dialogue reasonably with the

Freedom convoy, that is when a

growing and lengthy occupation set in.

The Emergencies Act came about

because of the lack of Canada’s ‘leadership’

at the highest level and was used

as an excuse for political inaction by

our nation’s leadership.

the detachment, advising the members

that he wanted police to shoot him.

The male also advised police that he

had a handgun in his pocket.

The male then returned to his

vehicle and left the Consort RCMP

detachment and a traffic stop was initiated.

The male stopped his vehicle and

exited it with an axe and knife, telling

the Consort/Coronation RCMP members

that they needed to do something

as we walked towards them with

weapons in his hands.

A Conducted Energy Weapon was

deployed and the male dropped his

weapons and went to the ground. The

male then attempted to grab the axe

again but the members were able to

safely take him into police custody.

During this incident, threats were

made to the police, and not the public.

As a result of the investigation,

Consort RCMP have charged Charles

Alexander Lair (37), a resident of

Consort, with two counts of mischief

over $5000, resist/ obstruct a Peace

Officer, assault with a weapon, possession

of a weapon for a dangerous

smile, and Charlie Jefferson, 98, is a

veteran of the Second World War. At

first glance, these two appear to

have little in common, yet they

share something special: They are

both amputees.

Jefferson served as a Lieutenant

with the Queen’s Own Rifles

Regiment. In 1945, in the Rhine

Valley, Germany, he was injured by

an anti-personnel mine explosion,

resulting in the loss of his left leg

below the knee.

When he returned home, Charlie

joined The War Amps, which was

started by First World War amputee

veterans to help each other adapt to

their new reality.

Years later, these veterans established

the Child Amputee (CHAMP)

Program, which provides young

amputees, like Isla, who was

born a left arm amputee, with

financial assistance for artificial

limbs and the peer support

of fellow amputees.

It was through The War

Amps that Isla and her family

heard about Jefferson. With

Remembrance Day coming up,

they visited him at his Ottawa

residence.

Isla was interested to learn

about Jefferson and the medals

he earned for his service. She was

also intrigued that he too was

missing a limb. Isla described Mr.

Jefferson as a role model who made

her feel proud to be an amputee.

Isla’s mom, Jamie, says it is

important that her daughter understands

the sacrifices that many

Canadians made for our freedom.

Turn to Champs, Pg 12

Charlie Jefferson (98), a Second

World War amputee veteran and

Isla McCallum (8), a member of The

War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP)

Program had the opportunity to meet

in Ottawa at Jefferson’s residence.

Poppy etiquette

Canadians wear poppies in

November to honour veterans

and soldiers who gave their lives

fighting for freedoms abroad.

The Royal Canadian Legion has

a Poppy Protocol Guide, with tips

on how to wear a poppy appropriately

and respectfully. Here’s

what it recommends.

How to wear a poppy

A poppy should be worn on the

left side of your chest over your

heart. The poppy is a sacred

symbol and therefore shouldn’t

be affixed with any type of pin

that obstructs it.

When to wear a poppy

Wear your poppy from the last

Friday in October until

Remembrance Day on November

11. You can also wear a poppy at

a veteran’s funeral or war memorial

service such as one held at

the anniversary for the Battle of

Vimy Ridge.

How to remove a poppy

It’s fine to continue to wear

your poppy after November 11.

However, many people choose to

remove their poppies and place

them on a cenotaph or wreath at

a Remembrance Day

ceremony’s conclusion.

This has become

a poignant tradition at

many war memorials.

Always ensure you

store or dispose of

your poppy respectfully.

If you see a

poppy on the ground,

please pick it up, clean

it off and dispose of it

in a respectful way.

The Royal

Canadian Legion supplies

the poppies for

free but encourages

donations to its Poppy

Fund, which helps

Canadian veterans

and their families.

Guitars for Vets

“Putting the healing power of

music into the hands of heroes” is

what Guitars for Vets is all about.

This innovative program gives

gently used guitars to Canadian veterans

and members of the Armed

Forces with service-related disabilities.

Here’s what you should know

about this innovative program.

How it started

Guitars for Vets recognizes that

music can be healing for veterans

living with PTSD as well as other

mental and physical impairments

sustained while serving. This volunteer-led

program is co-ordinated

by Veterans Emergency Transition

Services (VETS), an organization

dedicated to helping homeless and

other struggling veterans reintegrate

into society. VETS has helped

more than 4,500 veterans find

housing, jobs and access to social

services.

How it works

The Guitars for Vets program

mat ches veterans with donated guitars.

It also pairs veterans with

knowledgeable instructors so they

can learn to play their instrument,

develop new skills and uncover a

lifelong passion.

Online Lessons

Guitars for Vets has recently

announced a Cross Country Tour, a

series of virtual guitar lessons for

veterans across

Canada. One hundred

participants will

receive a brand-new

acoustic guitar plus 10

free lessons from an

instructor.

Guitar donations

If you have a guitar

that still works well

but isn’t played as

much as it should be,

drop it off at any Long

& McQuade store in

Canada. Your guitar

will go to a veteran in need, and

you’ll be putting the healing power

of music into the hands of a hero.

Guitars for Vets, visit vetscanada.

1952 where they settled in Clearbrook,

BC.

Helmut was a welder working

living in Spain for a couple

years.

Some of Gale’s

favourite hobbies

included: playing

the guitar, skiing

in the winter,

golf, camping

and boating with

friends. Every

fall Gale would

come home to

job was to drive truck.

Volunteering at the

Helping provide meals to the

homeless and needy brought

great satisfaction to her.

Gale never had children

but her cats were her babies!

She loved cats. Sam was her

favourite cat. They brought

her much joy and comfort.

Gale had a “likeable” personality.

She got along with

everyone and she liked

people. She liked to joke

around and always made

everyone laugh.

She will be sadly missed

by all those who knew her.

Notice of Increase

to the Franchise Fee

on Electric Billings

Please be advised that the Village of Clive is proposing

to increase the local access fee, which is charged to

FortisAlberta Inc. (FortisAlberta) for use of municipal

lands for its power lines effective January 1, 2023.

The fee is recovered by FortisAlberta from its

customers as the local municipal access fee on electric

billings of all customers that receive electric service in

the Village. This local access fee will be increased from

$7.32 (10%) to $8.05 (11%) of the delivery charge of

FortisAlberta, excluding energy related riders.

This calculation is based on 640 kWh consumption

in 30 days.

Questions or concerns should be directed to

Carla Kenney, CAO at (403) 784-3366 or

email admin@clive.ca.

Thank you.

Notice of Increase to

the Franchise Fee on

Natural Gas Billings

The Village of Clive is proposing to increase the natural gas

distribution franchise fee which it charges ATCO Gas and

Pipelines Ltd. for the exclusive right to deliver natural gas to

the residents of Clive and for use of municipal lands for its

natural gas lines, effective January 1st, 2023. The franchise fee

applies to all customers that receive gas services in Clive and

is required to be billed as a separate charge on gas billings.

The current franchise fee is set at 16.17% of ATCO Gas and

Pipelines Ltd. delivery revenues and will increase to 17.17%

effective January 1, 2023. For an average residential customer

using 115 GJs per year, this will result in an annual increase of

approximately $6.61 from the average that would otherwise

be paid in 2023. The franchise fee is anticipated to account for

approximately $113.43 of the average annual residential bill

in 2023.

Federal grant for energy efficiency audit system

Cont’d from Pg 2

Council noted that an individual

hired as a campground attendant

could be kept on year-round and the

position changed to accommodate

other town departments.

The CAO will draft tentative advertisements

for the position of

campground attendant to be brought

back to council.

The campground also has a trailer

dumping station, large areas for group

camping, a camp kitchen, and a large

new playground. The Coronation Dam

is home to Rainbow Trout and

Northern Pike and accommodates

year-round fishing. There is a boat

launch for small fishing boats.

Sustainergy Group presentation

A federal grant could be available to

help Coronation town council offset

the cost of accessing an energy efficiency

audit system, designed to help

improve energy efficiency and lower

consumption usage in town owned

facilities.

Youngstown win!

Merlin Harris from Youngstown

says he’s “still in shock” after winning

the second-top EXTRA prize on the

Sept. 16 LOTTO MAX draw!

“I was sitting in the garage with my

dog when I decided to check my

tickets. I checked them and thought it

was $1000, so I got my wife to check it

too. That’s when we realized we won

$100,000!” he explained while claiming

his prize.

Harris has a few ideas for what he

will do with his recent windfall.

“I’m going to get a new car, pay some

bills then maybe take a trip to the

Dominican.”

“It feels awesome, I’m still in shock!”

he added.

Munson local takes home $1 million

MAXMILLIONS prize.

Michael Burfield is one of Alberta’s

newly minted millionaires in the Sept.

27 LOTTO MAX draw.

The morning after the draw,

Burfield went to a nearby store to

check his tickets. When he scanned

his ticket, he knew he had won big.

“I was trying to count the zeros to

see how much it was, but it flashed so

quickly,” he recalled as he claimed his

$1 million prize. “I was in sheer

shock!”

“I’d like to take the kids on a trip to

Disneyland and then do some home

renovations,” he said.

Champs

Cont’d from Pg 7

“Mr. Jefferson and others risked

their lives so that we could live in a

better world.”

Through The War Amps “Operation

Legacy,” Isla and young amputees

across the country pay tribute to the

veteran members of the Association

who laid the foundation for programs

that continue to make a difference in

the lives of amputees today.

“Because of their work, child amputees

have the tools and resources they

need to be active, independent, and

confident,” says Jamie.

But Charlie says he also takes comfort

in knowing that Isla and other

“champs” will continue spreading the

message of remembrance, even when

he no longer can.

Adds Jamie, “They [veterans]

passed this legacy to younger amputees,

and now it’s their turn to share

these stories so that the sacrifices of

veterans and all those who served are

never forgotten. It’s a wonderful

legacy!”

At its regular meeting

Tues. Oct. 24 council listened

to a Zoom

presentation by Peter Hart,

business development manager

at Sustainergy Group

Inc. The group, based out of

Sherwood Park, helps clients

reduce operating costs

by identifying and capitalizing

on energy efficiency

opportunities.

Hart also spoke to council

about the opportunity to

access the Federation of

Canada Municipalities

(FCM) grant if they agreed

to work with Sustainergy

Group Inc.

During his presentation,

Hart explained to council

how Sustainergy Group

would install a monitoring

device which would, ultimately,

be a cost efficient

and effective way to keep

track of energy

consumption.

“We diagnose where the

energy is going and improve

the efficiency by monitoring

and looking for irregularities,”

he said. “Over time we

can also measure the deterioration

of equipment.”

Hart said the cost of

installing such a system at

the arena, curling rink and

pool would be approximately

$28,276 which would

be offset by a federal grant

of around $22,621, leaving

the town with a bill of $5,600.

The yearly fee for the energy

efficiency audit system is

$1,500.

This cost is covered by the

grant in the first year of

installation but would then

be a yearly fee charged to

the municipality.

Hart told council that 70

per cent of the FCM grant

although he noted it could

Council, who accepted the

Hiring for snow removal

At a recent meeting

Coronation town council

discussed a proposal from

The Coronation Housing

Authority to hire a seasonal

part-time employee to help

remove snow accumulation

at King Court and Windsor

Manors.

During the discussion it

was noted that a part time

staff person hired to help at

the senior’s facilities could

also help clear areas of the

municipality and also

approach the mall merchants

to address their snow

clearing requirements.

“All public works is used

for snow removal,” said

Mayor Ron Checkel after the

meeting. “It makes sense to

hire extra people after a

blizzard. It helps get the

snow clearing done sooner

and as they are just hired for

when we need them, it is

cheaper.”

CAO Quinton Flint noted

that the housing authority

had previously sent out a

tender to contract the

position of snow clearing out

and received only one

inquiry.

It was noted during the

meeting that the town can

cover staff members for

snow removal with their

own insurance if

they are considered

staff and on

the payroll. The

individual covering

this

position could be

hired out to the

manors and the

mall merchants

to recover the

staffing costs.

Council unanimously

approved

a motion by

Deputy Mayor

Brett Alderdice

that direction be

given to the CAO

to provide council

with different

options on how to

best move forward with the

issue.

The CAO will look into

insurance and staffing

implications of hiring a part

time person for snow

removal.
