August 25, 2017:
ELECTION 2017 – We will NOT have a Municipal election this year in Nobleford.
Marguerite Wobick, 7 years, Pete Pelley, 7 years, and Don Vincent, 4 years, all decided not to seek re-election this time. I would like to offer my thanks to these three for the countless hours that they put in on behalf of Nobleford. Excellent Councillors and citizens. Thank you all!
Marinus de Leeuw, Melissa Jensen and Tony Aleman will be the new members of Council. Together with returnees Don Holinaty and myself, and our CAO, Kirk Hofman, we will do our best to keep Nobleford as an awesome place to live and raise your families.
Council will be busy as we have some big infrastructure projects on the go:
-Expansion to our treated water capacity, a $750,000.00 build.
-Upgrade our sewage lagoons, a $3,000,000.00 undertaking.
-The new East side residential subdivision (private developer), paving by the end of October.
-Our Centennial. We will be 100 years young in February 2018 and we plan to have a Birthday Party on February 27th in the evening.
Have you noticed the new LED streetlights? The changeover to the more efficient LED lights came at NO COST to the Village. FORTIS paid Nobleford $19,000, and our monthly rates decreased.
Thanks to the Nobleford Parks and Recreation Society volunteers along with support from private donations, Village Policy #02-22, the legacy fund left by the Nobleford Legion, and the Province of Alberta, Centennial Park’s $150,000 in upgrades are starting to take shape. Go for a walk and see the new silhouettes and the new seating. Very, very nice. Installing new park lights, signage, and building the Legion Pavilion are next on the list.
Speaking of NEW! The 30 kmph school zone on Highway Avenue has been replaced. We now have permanent 30 kmph zone that is in effect 24/7, not just school days or school hours.
Please obey the signs! This is a safety issue! Slow down and put the cell phones away. This is a busy area all the time.
