Residents around Byemoor and Endiang can now dispense drinking water in bulk for price.

At its regular meeting Octt. 14, County of Stettler council passed a bylaw that set the price at $3 per cubic meter which covers the cost of the water from the Henry Kroeger Water Commission at $2 per cubic meter and $1 for operational and administrative expenses.

“The truck fill stations at Byemoor and Endiang are the first bulk water dispensers in the County of Stettler that allows for the sale of bulk potable water for residents to access the water with a passcode,” said Fox.

Liberal Cemetery

Council granted a request from Liberal Cemetery for $1,000 for annual funds to operate the cemetery, as part of the county’s policy to fund and support cemeteries.

Highway design guidelines approved

Council approved a staff recommendation to endorse commercial and industrial design guidelines for the highway entrances on Highway 12 and Highway 56 at the town gateways which will be part of the inter-municipal development plan for the town and county.

“The town and the county will process the application in their boundaries,” said Johan van der Bank, director of planning and development.

Proposed guidelines were presented to town and county representatives by Berry Architecture and Associates last month.

Highway commercial subdivision

A landowner planning to develop a nine-lot highway commercial subdivision on Highway 12 east of the town was given relief from property taxes while lots are still unsold.

Council granted the request from Greg Hayden who asked for the relief considering the tough economic condition.

“We do have interest in some of the lots,” said Hayden.

Council approved a staff recommendation to assess unsold lots at a special mill rate for the tax years 2010 and 2011 or until a commercial land title is transferred to another landowner.

Hayden continues to work on requirements to meet subdivision conditions including the engineering design, enter a development agreement with the county and prepare a subdivision plan.

He anticipates that construction will start in spring 2010 and that lots will be for sale in fall 2010.

CAO vehicle

Council passed a staff recommendation to not replace the chief administrative officer’s vehicle, and rather than the CAO be reimbursed for using his own vehicle for county business.
