Lacrosse Relocation to Complex

Crowsnest Pass Lacrosse will be played in the Complex this year after the closure of Albert Stella Memorial Arena. The lacrosse association will have two separate stretches in between other events to hold games and practices.

Downtown Coleman Tender Award

Council is moving forward in the Downtown Coleman Revitalization Tender. During Tuesday March 26’s meeting, council awarded Bow Mark Paving LTD. with the Tender. The next step in the process will be coming up with a construction schedule and a completion date should be available after that.

Frank Wastewater Treatment Plant

The plant is still in need of major upgrades. Council has decided to continue sharing the concerns they have about the Wastewater Treatment Plant with the province and the upgrades they need but aren't making a decision yet on what way they will carry forward. Council will leave this situation with Administration for the time being.

Southern Alberta Emergency Management Resource Sharing Agreement

Council carried a motion that they will sign the Southern Alberta Emergency Management Resource Sharing Agreement (SAEMRSA). Currently there are several municipalities across Southern Alberta who are participating in this agreement. The advantage of the agreement is it both lays out how to request resources and what the rates for payment of those resources will be. This allows quicker access to resources as opposed to trying to source them during times of emergencies.

Alberta Health Community Initiative

Council has decided to forgo joining the Alberta Health Community this year and will instead pursue it in 2020. The AHC Initiative provides an opportunity to meet the community where it’s at and understands the importance of providing the right level of support for the Crowsnest Pass.

Pitch-In Canada Week

Council has decided to hold a cleanup event later in the spring instead of during the Pitch-In week of April 22-April 29. This decision was made because weather could always affect this area making a cleanup at this time of the year difficult. Council also made a motion to supply gloves and garbage bags for the event when it happens. The event would be in conjunction with the stewardship date.

Student Transportation Concerns

Council discussed concerns about students who are within 2.4 km’s of the school not being able to use busing wish for younger children may be a problem due to highway three intersecting the community. After discussion it was decided that Council would put forth a letter regarding this issue. More on this may be discussed in later council meetings.
