Engineering Services Water & Wastewater Main Extension Grande Cache – Awarded
In July, Council entered into an agreement with the Mountain Metis Nation Association regarding the sale of Block 9722089, Lot 34, Plan 14, within the Hamlet of Grande Cache for the potential future development of a Mountain Metis Cultural Centre. Administration posted a Request for Proposal for Engineering Services to extend the Water and Wastewater Mains from 104 Avenue and 97 street intersection east to Memorial Drive in Grande Cache. Council moved to award the project to Allnorth Consultants Limited in the amount of $67,576.00, with funds to come from Infrastructure Replacement Reserves. This extension will also accommodate future area growth when required.

Greenview Council writes letter opposing the potential regionalization of Victims Services Units across Alberta
On July 19, 2022, an announcement was made by the Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, making recommendations for redesigning and regionalizing the current Victims Services Units throughout the province. The proposal includes replacing all the current Victims Services Boards in Alberta with one regionalized Board in each of the four zones that align with the four current zones of the Alberta RCMP. Greenview Council recognizes that this would be a significant loss to our community and issued a letter to the Minister of Justice and the Solicitor General opposing the potential regionalization of Victims’ Services Units across Alberta.

Joint use of the Greenview Regional Multiplex (GRM) by the new K-12 school
Northern Gateway Regional School Division approached Greenview Council regarding sharing the fieldhouse with the new K-12 school in Valleyview that would be physically attached to the GRM. Council agreed to move forward in principle with joint use of the GRM by the new K-12 school pending a mutually beneficial joint use agreement with Northern Gateway School Division. Council also directed Administration to host public engagement sessions as soon as possible to gather information from ratepayers and facility users.

Valleyview Airport Rehabilitation Cost-Sharing
The Valleyview Airport continues to play an important role to accommodate emergency services and local air traffic for Greenview ratepayers.
