Greenview Looking at a Staged Approach to Address Creek Stabilization in DeBolt
In 2021 Administration was looking to obtain a detailed study on creek bank stabilization in the Hamlet of DeBolt. MPE Engineering Ltd was engaged to prepare the slope stability/stabilization study and provided the completed report on November 30, 2021. The report noted that the creek sloughing within the Hamlet of DeBolt is directly affecting approximately 22 properties comprised of residential, a community centre, water treatment plant, hotel, and a municipal pumping station. Council received the report for information and moved to direct Administration to bring back costs for a staged approach to stabilize the bank for DeBolt Creeks within the Hamlet of DeBolt.

Bighorn Golden Age Club in Grande Cache Gets Council Support for Renovation
The Bighorn Golden Age Club is a not-for-profit organization that has operated a Senior’s Club in Grande Cache for the past 30 years. This club is a “drop-in” facility welcoming all seniors in the Grande Cache area and provides activities, events, opportunities for senior interaction, learning, health, lifestyles and general well-being. The Bighorn Golden Age Club submitted a capital grant application in October 2021 requesting funds for phase 3 for the balance of the engineering costs for the construction phase. There have never been any significant renovations done to this facility. However, major renovations are now required to repair existing structural problems, meet code standards, create functionality in the existing space and make the facility wheelchair accessible. Council approved a capital grant in the amount of $27,666.89 to the Bighorn Golden Age Club for the engineering costs for phase 3 of the renovation project, with funds to come from the Community Services Miscellaneous Grants.

At the October 26, 2021, Council Meeting, Councillor Didow made a Notice of Motion directing Administration to investigate a Recreation board in Grande Cache. Administration continues to work on developing a recreation board for the Hamlet of Grande Cache.
