Council Highlights – January 23, 2024


Valleyview, Alberta

2024 Community Grant Requests
Greenview Council deems it desirable to provide stable funding agreements to non-profit organizations that provide direct and indirect benefits to Greenview residents and surrounding communities. Council approved funding to grant recipients in the amount of $641,750.00 to assist 16 non-profit organizations that serve Greenview residents.

Grande Cache Minor Hockey U13 Sponsorship
Grande Cache has been chosen as the host community of the U13 2024 Hockey Alberta Provincial Championships on March 21-24, 2024. The Grande Cache Minor Hockey Association has spent many hours of volunteer time applying to be a host community. This event will be used as a fundraiser for a local program called “Legacy Plan,” which aims to provide local youth, particularly those who may face financial constraints, to attend hockey camps to enhance their skills. Greenview Council approved a sponsorship in the amount of $21,800.00 to assist with the operational costs of hosting this event.

Ridgevalley Streetlights
Administration had received feedback regarding the streetlighting along RR 262 within the Hamlet of Ridgevalley, specifically along the area where children attending Ridgevalley School must cross the road. During the dark winter months, visibility is reduced making safety a concern. Council requested that Administration proceed with the installation of additional streetlights in the area around the school and arena, along with a public open house to discuss the need for future additional streetlights within the hamlet.

Maskwa Medical Clinic
Greenview Council authorized Administration to enter into an agreement with Maskwa Medical Center (Canada) Inc. in the amount of $500,000.00 for the design and engineering services for the Maskwa Medical Center building. The Maskwa Medical Center project was founded in 2019 after recognizing Northern Alberta’s need for better access to diagnostic services.

Tender awarded for Nightly Guard Services

Council awarded the tender for Nightly Guard Services in Valleyview and Grande Cache to Apex Security Inc., in the amount of $566,160.00 plus GST, with funds to come from the Facilities Maintenance operational budget. The RFP was posted to Alberta Purchasing Connection on December 19, 2023, and closed on January 15, 2024. Five (5) proposals were received, with only three (3) meeting mandatory requirements. The result of this decision will provide overnight security patrolling the building and yard sites in both Valleyview and Grande Cache at a minimum of three times a night.
