Council Meeting Highlights – March 23, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Council Highlights – March 23, 2020

Doing Business in Greenview
Grande Cache Bylaw No. 787 required mandatory business licenses in the hamlet while the Greenview Bylaw 00-324 required businesses to have a business license voluntarily. Council moved to repeal Bylaw No. 787 to provide clarification. Companies operating within Greenview will be required to have a valid development permit. In some cases, a business may require additional municipal approvals, for example, liquor or cannabis establishments. Greenview administration will have a process in place for businesses to request written notice of approval from the municipality to operate their business for these special circumstances.

Procedural Bylaw Amendments
To ensure that Council business can carry on through challenges such as COVID-19 and recommended travel limitations to the main administration office in Valleyview, the amendment of the procedural bylaw allows the Reeve to authorize a meeting to proceed by electronic means without 50% of the members in attendance, under extenuating circumstances. Meetings with a majority of members attending through electronic means have to be identified as an electronic meeting and made available to the public. (more…)

Community Grants Deadline

Greenview provides grants to non-profit organizations to assist with operational and/or capital projects that will enhance and support the needs of the municipal residents. (more…)

Social Services Funding Support

The Alberta Government is providing $30 million to municipalities, charitable and non-profit organizations to provide help to individuals, seniors, families and other vulnerable Albertans who are isolated or impacted by measures to contain COVID-19.
Through grants from their local Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) in Edmonton and Calgary, and from Family and Community Support Services Association of Alberta (FCSSAA) representing the remainder of the province, funding will be distributed to civil society organizations.
These organizations will support a range of services needed from at-home help for seniors, crisis and helplines, food security issues, emotional and mental health counselling or any other identified community issues.
Charitable and non-profit organizations are encouraged to connect directly with their local FCSS program to receive detailed funding guidelines and grant criteria. FCSS will work closely with Community and Social Services (CSS) to obtain project approvals.

Important Notice – Wipes & Personal Hygiene Products Clog Sewer Lines

Many household products are labelled and marketed as DISPOSABLE and/or FLUSHABLE; many baby and adult personal hygiene products, along with household wipes and cleaning towelettes are labelled both disposable and flushable.  While these products may be marketed as a convenience item in this way, the truth is that these types of items have the ability to clog and stop up not only the sewer line on your property but also can cause blockage and service problems in the public sewer system.

Unlike toilet paper, these products DO NOT break down once they are flushed.

DO NOT flush the listed items; place them in the trash, not the toilet.
