March 20, 2017:
It must be spring because Council is working at finalizing our 2017 budget. Unlike the Federal and Provincial budgets, ours will be quite simple.
Nobleford is currently enjoying record high reserves and along with that we are lowering your property taxes again.
2017 will be a busy year in Nobleford as we have a lot of building and renovating that will be taking place:
-A new sewer line will be built on Railway Ave North.
-Centennial Park (across from the post office) will see significant upgrades this year. New lighting, Legacy project silhouettes, Legion Pavilion and new sidewalks are some of the things taking place. The park will have to be closed for part of the summer in order for all these projects to be finished. Please obey all
signage and be safe.
-A new church will be built on the annexed land on the East side of the Village. A housing development will be started there as well. Nobleford is growing again.
-The Community Complex may need a new name as it is going to be painted this year. After 35 years it is showing its age.
-Construction will continue on new homes in Phase 5 as well as new buildings being built in the industrial park.
-Our clean water storage capacity needs to be increased so we are not caught short in the near future. We may be able to get this project started as well.
A couple of housekeeping items:
Outdoor burning in Nobleford is restricted to small campfires contained in a suitable manner. NO SPRING CLEANUP BURNING.
Spring is also the time to renew your pet’s licence and avoid a $100.00 fine. Be a responsible pet owner.
Please, clean up your yards after a winter of pet use. Do it before the neighbours complain.
The washrooms on the soccer fields and at the spray park will be opened AFTER the danger from frost has passed. The May long weekend is the usual target.
Finally…dial 911 if you have an emergency or wish to report suspicious activity.
Spring has arrived…?
