Oct 3 Update - Enhanced Policing, Snow Removal, Possible Square Butte Meeting & Ag Services

Enhanced Policing

The MD's new Enhanced Policing Pilot Project is a GO.  There is a new officer that will be STRICTLY allocated for the MD to help with rural crime, gathering intelligence for the Southern Alberta Crime Unit, Enforcement, etc...

Like I mentioned previously, this is a 3 month pilot project that staff and council will revisit to see how effective it has been and re-evaluate.  We are hopeful this project will have a very positive impact for our residents of the MD.

Snow Removal (@ 52 seconds)

It sure has been quite the start to Winter (I mean Fall, it is Fall right?)  As a reminder, the MD has a policy where the target goal for snow removal is having all 2,400 km of MD roads cleared within 72 hours of the COMPLETION of a major event. 

If you have not been plowed out yet, please be patient.  Public Works has done a good job of getting equipment ready for a situation like this and has 75% of its fleet turned over to snow removal.

Be safe out there!

Possible Square Butte Meeting - November 8th (to be confirmed) (@1:54)

We are looking at having a meeting at the Square Butte Hall in conjunction with the High Country Rural Crime Watch.  Some of the topics of conversation include:
  • The MD's new Enhanced Policing Pilot
  • The Maclean Creek Fire this past summer
  • Update from the Turner Valley RCMP
  • and more
Pencil into your calendars Nov 8th at 7pm for Square Butte Hall.  We should have the location firmed up shortly.  If there are specific items you would like to have on the agenda, feel free to let me know.

Check back here on my website or at for more details as I have them.
