“Dare to chase your biggest dreams, dare to chase your chosen career, dare to excel, dare to go the extra mile, and dare to make your mark in the world.” Those were just a few of the heartfelt words Robert Malica, Lamont County councillor and father of graduate Brayden, spoke during his speech to the class of 2014 on Friday, June 13 at the podium on stage in the Lamont High School (LHS) gymnasium. “Where you grow up and attend school greatly shapes who you are.

Remember who has been there through all the good times and bad. You must thank your family, teachers and friends for encouraging you to dare to dream to be all that you can be and to continue to create stories in your life,” stated Malica. “I have had the pleasure to get to know many of these graduates throughout the years. I cannot believe how fast time flies, it seems like yesterday that I was sitting on this exact stage, oh wait, I’m getting old! I graduated almost 30 years ago, and now I’m here celebrating with my youngest son Brayden and his fellow graduates,” added Malica. “One story may end

but there are many more to be written. Keep the stories throughout elementary, junior and senior high school close to you. Take a moment to reflect on all that you have achieved and the stories you have made. Appreciate just how far all of you have come. It’s a big accomplishment!” No matter what direction you decide to take, Malica told the graduates just to be sure that it is the story you want to add to their collection. He also encouraged the graduates to stay true to themselves and what they have learned over the years as they step boldly into the future that awaits. There were other

words of sage advice and well wishes sent to the graduates on behalf of Principal Sharon McLean, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) trustee Colleen Holowaychuk, EIPS Superintendent Bruce Beliveau, Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske, and Town of Lamont Mayor Bill Skinner. Lamont High’s Librarian Rose Konsorada was the inspirational speaker of the evening, and she also had words of advice and expressed her gratitude for spending the last 25 years as the school’s librarian. “I have and always will be proud of all my children,” said

Konsorada, who wished them luck and success and reminded them all to come back to the library and update her on their special journey’s and where life has taken them. Konsorada shared with the graduates and audience members that she never expected to be where she is now. Konsorada graduated from LHS in 1973, and said that even though she wound up where she least expected, it was “exactly where I should have been” all along. Mathmatics teacher Allan Hope gave the official reply from the teachers, and took the time to describe some of the qualities and special

memories he has of the graduates and to wish them well in the future. He threw in a few math jokes for good measure which had all of the graduates laughing beside him while he was on stage. Then it was time for the presentation of the composite of the graduation class, and presentation of 41 certificates and roses by Principal Sharon McLean and Assistant Principal Garry Russell. Expressing a great deal of collected relief and pure happiness, the graduates departed the stage to officially close the Commencement Ceremonies.

Opinion Writer diagnosed with bad case of cognitive dissonance To the Editor, Cognitive dissonance? One meaning is, to ignore or deny any information that conflicts with existing beliefs. If the Canadian Wheat Board Alliance is right, cognitive dissonance might reach epidemic proportions before the next Federal election.According to the Alliance, last Feb. with wheat priced $11.38/bu at Vancouver; producers received $4.69/bu or 41% of the selling price. Under single-desk, with wheat priced $10.61/bu at Vancouver; producers received $9.99/bu or 94% of the selling price. Now I don’t care one little bit if MP David Anderson and MP Gerry Ritz suffer from a bad bout of cognitive dissonance but I feel compassion for those hard working producers who supported “market freedom” because of Conservative lies. It is possible to get the single-desk back and the first step is making sure the likes of Anderson and Ritz are not around after the next election. If a 50% drop in the farmer’s share of the selling price won’t do it, nothing will. Bev Currie, Swift Current, Sask

From Where I Sit: Even Maxwell Would Understand

By Hazel Anaka After forty years of speaking to audiences and writing more than seventy books, John Maxwell is widely acknowledged to be a leadership guru. He makes us believe that we too can become leaders. What’s even more exciting is that his message isn’t directed solely at managers and executives. It is applicable to each of us regardless of our starting point or whether we occupy a box on some org chart. His success strategy message is accessible to all of us.

His website offers a combination of free and paid resources and includes a blog. A quick reading of some of his quotes reveals an open acknowledgement of the role of God in his life and how it guides his actions. His words for us are both aspirational and inspirational. Cynics may think that the words we tell ourselves are neutral. The truth is they can either help or harm us. Who among us hasn’t been knocked flat by some of the destructive or inaccurate crap we tell ourselves, often on an endless loop or in stereo 24?/7? Maxwell says, “Learn to say no to the good so you can say yes to the best.” “A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them.” “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities.

They vary on their desires to reach their potential.” Another quote (not Maxwell’s) asks how we can soar with the eagles when we’re surrounded by turkeys. Perhaps Maxwell’s questions when someone doesn’t perform well are kinder and more useful in the long term. Maybe when we feel like eagles we need to ask whether our co-worker/friend/partner: Is out of their league, not up to the job or the responsibility? Is out of position, in the wrong job? Is out of their comfort zone, in a bad environment? Is beyond their understanding, not properly trained? Maybe then we can be more compassionate. Or direct resources to help both the person and the situation. Trust me I know this isn’t easy. Most of us have enough

lings, and special friends in attendance for the two day celebration that had so many memorable moments, it would be impossible to mention all of them. I chatted briefly with grandmother Theresa Bull before the official class photo was taken, and it was impossible for her not to get emotional. “I’m a big baby,” said Theresa apologetically. I told her not to apologize, and admitted even I got a little teary eyed during the ceremony on Friday evening even though I do not have any children who were graduating this year. I am, however,

The graduation of Madalyn Adamyk was extra special. The Class of 2014’s valedictorian was extra proud to have her mother Natalie Adamyk, her grandmother Mae Adamyk, and her great grandmother Polly Pewarchuk by her side. Four generations came together to celebrate this important milestone, and it was heartwarming to see them altogether during the ceremony and banquet on June 13 and 14. There were many other grandparents, uncles and aunts, sib-

trouble getting through the day and our own responsibilities. How can we invest time and positive energy into helping someone else who is mightily ticking us off? It’s easier and perhaps more satisfying to complain, gossip about it, point fingers and wring our hands. We need to resist the urge. We need to be as honest as we can. We need to try to get help for the organization and ourselves. We need to ‘work the system’ and follow protocol and chain of command. We need to give it our best shot. Only then can we decide if saving ourselves is the only answer. That may mean leaving the company or relationship. Not all situations can be salvaged. Sometimes for our own health and sanity we need to cut our losses and move on. Even Maxwell would understand from where I sit. acquaintances of some of the graduates’ parents, and it was great to see them smiling and taking priceless Kodak moments of their own. My turn will be in 2017 when my son Jacques graduates from Lamont High School. I, too, have a hard time comprehending where all the time has gone since my son’s birth on August 19, 1998. Time is so elusive, and making the most of time is equally as challenging, but I know there is a time and a reason and a season for all things and I wish all of this year’s graduates all the best in the future.

Lamont area residents voice concerns about subdivision plans during public hearing Michelle Pinon Editor

A total of 16 people attended the public hearing for the proposed Highland Estates subdivision on June 10 at the meeting room at the Lamont Recreation Centre. While developer Ron Hall had met all of the statutory requirements as specified in the Municipal Government Act (MGA) and Lamont County’s Area Structure Plan (ASP) and Redistricting Bylaw,

many of the people in attendance still had questions about the proposed development to be located 1.6 kms south of the Town of Lamont and 1.6 kms west on Township Road 552. One of the local residents who asked several pertinent questions was former Lamont Mayor Denis Durand. He pointed out that Highway 15 was supposed to have been twinned years ago when he was a member of town council. Durand pointed out that traffic on Highway 15 is

“increasing daily” and noticed there was no plans for a merging lane included in the plan. He pointed out that with the majority of vehicles heading westbound, and a big hill, it was a dangerous point in the road and felt a merging lane should be mandatory. Durand said many local residents already bypass Highway 15 and travel Township Road 552 as an alternate route to Fort Saskatchewan. With more planned development in the Heartland, Durand stated that TWP RD. 522 can’t be “left alone” without any road improvements. He also asked questions about fire protection, water supply, sewer drainage, etc. Other residents also expressed their concerns about increased traffic, dust control, road dam-

age, absence of fences in the subdivision, pets, maintenance, rules of a condo board, regulations of the county as well as enforcement, environmental concerns, etc. There was a stakeholder from a Redwater oil company who said he wasn’t notified of the hearing and wondered why, since the company, which has several leases on the property. It was also pointed out that the plan doesn’t address the rights of mineral rights owners. While specific questions were raised throughout the hearing, the overriding concern of local residents seemed to be quality of life. Some were longtime residents, and others newcomers, but they all said they cherish the peace and quiet of country living and didn’t want their rural way of life to

change. Wayne Woldanski, Lamont County Reeve and chair of the public hearing, admitted that he, and members of council did not have any answers for residents, but were there to listen as they were. The main difference between the two groups was that the residents only have the

power to voice their concerns; while council members will have the power to either approve or turn down the proposal when they get together again. “We will be making some sort of decision at a council meeting,” stated Woldanski before closing the hearing at 8:37 p.m.

Fuel stolen near Hairy Hill On June 11th, 2014, Two Hills RCMP received a report of a break and enter at a rural property near Hairy Hill, Alberta. Sometime between 10:00 am, and 2:30 pm, unknown suspects attended the rural address and went through several out buildings on the property. No damage was done to the property, however an unknown amount of fuel was stolen. The vehicle involved is believed to be a pickup truck, still donning winter tires. Several sets of footprints were found on the property, with a unique tread pattern, indicating that a suspect was likely wearing golf shoes during the break and enter. The property was only vacant for a short period of time, so it is possible the suspects had prior knowledge of the property or its residents. Two Hills RCMP are seeking the public's help with any information related to the break and enter. The public are encouraged to call immediately regarding any suspicious activity, especially in the overnight or early morning hours. If you have any information please contact the Two Hills RCMP Detachment at 780-657-2820 or Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com.

8 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Chipman 4-H Beef Club hosts year end show and sale Our Achievement Day was held Monday, June 2nd at the Lamont Arena. But before that date rolled around, we had lots of work to do. We got the official starting weight for our calves back on November 16th. During the winter we didn't do a lot with our animals, other than making sure they were fed and had water every day – even when it was bitterly cold. For the most part, they handled the cold better than we did. Starting in March, some of us began trying to work with our calves. But many of us waited until after our Calf Tour on April 5th. For the Calf Tour we visited each farm and the member would tell us a bit about their calf. Of course we did pick a fairly cool and windy day so it was nice to have a hot meal at Mercer's. Then we went to the Mulholland Farm where we went inside the barn (out of the wind) and had a lesson on grooming our steers. Mr. Andruchow from Andrew was kind enough to share his knowledge with us as we would be grooming our steers for The Show. After that day we were strongly encouraged to work with our steers as we needed to be able to put a halter on them and then be able to walk them around the show ring. Alas, that is easier said than done! By the time Achievement Day arrived, we'd all done some work, but it was obvious that some had done more than others. Or maybe they just had gentler animals to start with? Before we could have The Show, we had to transform the arena so that it had a show ring, complete with mats, and bleachers. We did that Sunday night … during that awful, awful storm! So despite our best attempts, we had to deal with mud on Sunday night and all day on Monday. Monday morning we unloaded our steers and had to get them weighed in.

Then the Rate of Gain was calculated, which is the average number of pounds gained per day since we did the weigh in. Can you imagine what it would be like to gain 3.91 pounds every day? That was the highest rate of gain for this group of steers. Then it was time to gussy-up those steers – they all got a shower and were dried and brushed and even had some hair trimmed. And of course, they even got pedicures! After our pizza lunch, the actual show began. Terry Eleniak was the Ringman and he helped keep us, and our steers, moving along. The Confirmation Judge, Mr. Lyle Heiberg, had 4 steers brought into the ring and we had to judge them on their confirmation. This was the first time many of us had done judging so Mr. Heiberg gave us lots of pointers. After that, we brought our steers in to be judged. We were in two groups. The top two from each group then were judged against each other and the Grand and Reserve Champion Steers were determined. After that, TJ Fenton had us bring our steers in again so he could judge us on our Showmanship and Grooming skills. It's not always easy to get those steers to go where you want them to go! After the judges announced the winners, we got to take our steers out to the barns so they could have a break before the Sale. And we got to rest a bit too. Mind you, the parents did put us to work helping to organize things for the supper we were having before the Sale. A big thank you to NBI Feedlot for sponsoring the supper! People started arriving for supper about 6 as the Sale was due to start at 7. Just before 7, all the members were asked to go into the show ring and the awards from The Show were handed out. And here is how that went:

The winners of the Grand and Reserve Champion Steers received belt buckles, in addition to their plaques. These awards have been sponsored by Lamont County for many, many years and we'd like to thank them for their continued support. The Rate of Gain award has been sponsored by the Lipkewich family (Triangle E-L-D) for many, many years and continues to be sponsored by the family in honour of their Dad, Walter Lipkewich. Pauline and Sharline were in 4-H when they were younger. They, along with Pauline's daughter Sophia, presented the award to Jessalyn, while an emotional Eileen Lipkewich sat in the stands thinking how proud her husband would be to see the tradition continuing .

Motorcycle Ride For Dad fundraiser touches the lives and hearts of people in three local communities Michelle Pinon Editor

Motorcycle Ride For Dad organizers and riders are looking for one small boy with a big heart. His name is Hayden. One of the riders and his wife were stopped at the Tempo Gas Station just off Highway 15 between Bruderheim and Fort Saskatchewan Saturday afternoon after leaving Lamont, the last stop on the tour when the little boy asked them where all the motorcycles were going? The rider told the little boy about the ride and that they were raising funds for Prostate Cancer. The little boy said, “I have my birthday money and I’d like to donate it to you for cancer,” and handed over $120 to the rider.

“The rider brought the money back and gave it to me just before I started the end of the day speeches,” said Ride For Dad co-chair Chris Reeves. “I told all the riders the story.” Both Reeves and the rider are hoping to find this little boy and have reached out to the Lamont Leader to put the word out. If anyone knows the little boy they are to contact the Lamont Leader. “We at Ride For Dad want to recognize him in a very special way,” added Reeves. This past Saturday, June 14, a total of 1,000 riders raised $250,000. Organizers still have a few more pledges coming in so a final total is not known at press time. Reeves said that an additional $25,000 were spent on merchandise and raffle tickets. “The riding community in the

Greater Edmonton area are awesome,” stated Reeves, who also wanted readers to know that 100 per cent of what is raised in the area, stays in the area. “Any man that goes to the Cross Cancer Institute is supported by our riders....that’s farmers in Mundare, truck drivers in Leduc, accountants in Edmonton and on and on. We are very proud that our funds stay here.” Also proud to participate in the fundraiser were riders Bob Peterson of Morinville and Jeff Kennedy of Edmonton. Both members of the Veterans of Canada motorcycle club, said cancer runs in their families and they want to do all they can to support them, and do their part to support research and finding a cure for Prostate Cancer.

Mundare Mayor Charlie Gargus, left, accepted a Community Partner plaque from Ride representative Mike Lalande. Debra Raymakers and volunteer helpers plant blueberry bushes for the Ride.

Steve Sharun, left, accepts a recognition plaque from Mercier on behalf of the Town of Lamont. Sharun, Lions Club President, also helped other club members serve doughnuts and water during the stop over in Lamont. The Lions Club thanked Co-op and Safeway for donating the doughnuts.

Rider Doug McFayden, was with family members and friends on the Ride and said he is a member of the “Double Diamond” club in the Motorcycle Ride For Dad having raised $10,000 for the cause. Ride Captain Jeff Mercier said the ride is a “huge success” each and every year and pointed out that the Edmonton Ride For Dad is the first club in Canada to raise $1 million in the past five years. “Every year is a gift,” noted Mercier, who was accompanied by his daughter Georgia. Rider Jim Pennington was impressed by the warm welcome he and other riders received in the communities they visited. “What I really like is how the towns are showcased. You get to see these little places you wouldn’t normally see.”

Andrew Mayor Heather Tait presented Mercier with the proceeds during the Ride’s pit stop mid-Saturday morning. Elke Carr, director of the Andrew Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) presented $500 on behalf of the organization and Wilson Zukiwiski presented $100 on behalf of the Andrew Lions Club.

Valedictory Address: Live life to the fullest and you’ll find the success you desire Good evening ladies and gentlemen, honored guests, and fellow graduates. It is a great honor to be here. I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to all of my teachers, friends, and family members who helped to get to where I am today. It is a great honor to be chosen as this year’s valedictorian. To be honest I did not know what I was going to speak about today. I spent countless hours reading examples of valedictorian speeches on the internet

Valedictorian Madalyn Adamyk

with no avail. Either they were too cheesy, too preachy or just awfully boring. Then even sometimes the entire speeches were about the valedictorians themselves and well I do not feel comfortable enough to talk about my achievements for a whole entire speech. So I was stuck at a standstill. Then while I was thinking about my personal successes, it got me wondering. What is success? Some may say it’s getting into the right university or top marks, but to me success it much more than that. Success is doing something you love, something that has value to you. Whether it is finally making it through the boss level on a video game or finally getting your crush to go on a date with you. It doesn’t matter what life choices we have made, as long as we have tried our very best to achieve our dreams and goals. Then some days just living life to the fullest and being happy is a success in its self. You don’t need to make a lot of money, have a huge house and have fancy cars to be happy. Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination. Your life is what you make of it. Don’t like where you are? Change it. You are all creators of your own destiny, just live life to the fullest and happiest. Whether that be pulling all-nighters to finish that essay that is due the next day or just spending it with friends laughing until all hours of the night. It doesn’t matter what your plans are, or what you consider to be “great things.” Just remem-

ber that you can. You can try, you can fail, and you can try again. Happiness is determined by your attitude not your accomplishments. Life is too complicated and too short to live it focusing on what you don’t have. Spend your life focusing on the small things you have, the small successes. Even a small success is still success. Lastly I’d like to thank our family members, teachers, counsellors, and coaches, and the overall inspiration from the entire school community. To everyone I would like to say; our success is your success, for you have given us the courage to dare, the knowledge to excel, and the belief that we can succeed. You have been there for us with encouragement and care; you have had faith when we doubted ourselves. You have instilled in us the self-confidence needed to reach for our dreams. For all of these things, on behalf of the grad class I’d like to thank all of you who have played an integral role in us graduating today. As we continue our life journey let us always be proud of where we came from and the people who have played a role in our lives. Now for the graduation class; no matter where we have come from, no matter where we are going, we have shared valuable experiences during our time here at Lamont High School. We have grown into young adults together and, Iíd like to thank each and everyone one of you for that opportunity. Congratulations, graduating class of 2014.

Collision sends two people to hospital with serious injuries At approximately 4 p.m. on June 10 Strathcona County RCMP and Strathcona County Emergency Services responded to a serious motor vehicle collision on Hwy 15 and Range Road 211 in the north east area of Strathcona County. A 1997 Ford F150 was traveling westbound on Hwy 15 when it was struck by a 2007 Sterling semi-tractor cement

truck that was traveling north bound on Range Road 211. The Ford was being driven by a 63-year-old male from Two Hills County who sustained serious but non life threatening injuries and was transported via ground ambulance to a local hospital. A 61-yearold female from Ardrossan was a passenger in the Ford and she was transported via

STARS Air Ambulance to a local hospital, also with serious but non life threatening injuries. The Sterling semitruck was being driven by a 30-year-old male from Fort Saskatchewan who was not injured in the collision. It does not appear drugs, alcohol, speed or road conditions were factors in the collision.

THIS IS HOME. IT’S TIME TO PLAN OUR FUTURE.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - 21

Here are some town “housekeeping” reminders for the summer season to help keep your town looking its best! It all starts with our homes and our yards: • With the sun shining and the rise in temperature the grass is growing.....fast. Please make sure to keep up with your lawn mowing. • Also please make sure to get rid of any unsightly garbage, vehicles, and weeds. • There is a large item collection happening on June 10th to assist with

4-H Continued from Page 8 Not all the steers went to be butchered immediately, but that is where they will all end up. Although it was hard to see them go, we knew that was going to happen when we started them off way back in the fall. Once the buyers had made their arrangements about where to transport the steers to, and left their cheques, and the steers had been loaded up and were gone, it was time for us to clean up. It took way longer to clean up than it did to set it up. But finally we were done. And as a reward, we finally received the club jackets we ordered back in April. We will each receive a cheque for our steer at our year-end event which is being held at

the removal of some of these items. Please register your items with the Town Office by June 6. There is a limit of two items per household. For further information please refer to BY-LAW 672/00 on the Town of Lamont's website or use the following link: http://s3.amazonaws.co m / t o w n l i f e _ p ro d u c tion/public/uploads/by laws/1066/Nuisance_B the Birch Bay Ranch on Sunday, June 22. And then look out! Some of us will spend our money on a summer holiday and other fun things, but many of us (with a little prodding from our parents) will set some or all of it aside for our future education. And come September, it will be time for us to start looking around for a new calf so that we can start the whole process all over. Although maybe next year some of us will branch out and have a heifer project so that we can get a start on our own herd. After all, the 4-H Beef Projects are a good way to learn a lot of what we need to know about starting our own farm! Why don't you keep an eye open for our announcements about joining the Chipman 4-H Beef Club in the fall? Then you too can see that 4-H is all about "learning to do by doing"!

ylaw_672-00.pdf Spring fever has hit us all, even our pets. Please ensure that your animals are taken care of: • Your dogs should be fenced or on a leash within Town limits. • Please ensure you pick up after your dog. • Dog licenses can be purchased at the Town Office. For further information

please refer to BY-LAW 16/08 on the Town of Lamont's website or use the following link: http://s3.amazonaws.co m / t o w n l i f e _ p ro d u c tion/public/uploads/by laws/420/By-law_1608_Animal_Control_Bylaw.pdf Lake and camping season is upon us and there are some things to keep in mind:

• No trailers, RVs or other similar vehicles may be parked on roadways, alleyways, or parking lots • No power cords should be strewn across sidewalks. • Oversized or overweight loads need to follow truck routes. For further information please refer to BY-LAW 13/04 on the Town of Lamont's website,

or use the following link: http://s3.amazonaws.co m / t o w n l i f e _ p ro d u c tion/public/uploads/by laws/418/BY-LAW_1304_Parking.pdf Together we can help make our town a better place to live. Please remember that all violators of these BY-LAWS are subject to the corresponding disciplines and/or fines.

Magical moments for parents and tots during Fred Penner concert in St. Michael Michelle Pinon Editor

Even Fred Penner made the time to pen a little song about St. Michael during his recent visit and concert to the community. Penner, who performed last Thursday evening at the community centre called St. Michael the heart of Alberta, and the kind and caring people who live here. He sang about his love of literacy and children, and wished Early Steps To Success program even more success in the future as they instill the lessons of love in the little ones. There were many young children who danced, clapped and sang along with Penner. There were as many parents who did the same during the concert that brought back many wonderful memories they made during their childhood while watching Fred Penner's Place on TV. Leah Johnson, the community outreach coordinator for Family and Community Support

Services (FCSS) Lamont County Region, went over the results of the early childhood development study with folks in attendance before Penner took to the stage. Johnson thanked members of the Early Steps to Success coalition that was formed in conjunction with the project to help improve services for children between the ages of zero and six in Lamont County. "Creating the nurturing environments essential for healthy development takes a collective effort that involves parents, caregivers, governments, educators, service providers, business people and community members - the entire village in fact," said Johnson. She also pointed out that a child's early development has a lifelong impact on everything from physical and mental health, to educational and career success, ability to form stable, close relationships, and sense of self confidence and overall well-being. "Scientific research shows that the early

years (from birth to age five) are the most critical period of human development and that children's early environments shape the structure of their rapidly growing brains." Measuring the progress of young children can be enormously useful in ensuring that children and their families have the supports they need to thrive and succeed, added Johnson. The Early Child Development (ECD)_ Mapping Initiative was launched by Alberta Education in 2009 to study early childhood development across Alberta and to engage communities in promoting positive early development. The project is based at the University of Alberta, which was contracted by Alberta Education over the course of the five year initiative. Johnson also encouraged participants to fill out their follow up survey before leaving the event. It was estimated that well over 250 people attended the benefit.

Over 250, both adults and children, attended the concert put on by famous child entertainer Fred Penner in St. Michael last week.

Delegation – Lamont & District Agricultural Society The Lamont & District Agricultural Society requested help to level the ground for the placement of new chutes before the Summer Sizzler. Council agreed to provide grader services to the Lamont & District Agricultural Society LCREDI Agreement Information regarding the new properties and change in properties between 2011 and 2013 was provided to Council, as directed from the May council meeting. Administration will review the capital costs and the reimbursement of costs related to the LCREDI agreement, and will provide further recommendations to Council at the next council meeting. Stormwater Master Drainage Plan for Heartland South Basin As a part of the continued infrastructure development of the Industrial Heartland, Lamont County approved the proposal and scope of the Storm Water Master Drainage plan for the south basin area of

RR 200 Power Lines Questions have arisen as to the placement of power poles on RR 200 north of township road 560, and why they are in the middle of the ditch rather than on the fence line. Lamont County will investigate the issue, and a general policy regarding development adjacent to county roads will be developed. Drainage Issues Water drainage in certain areas is a problem, partly due to beaver dams. Destroying the dams could have a negative effect for landowners and other municipalities. Lamont County will review the water that’s being held on the Woytkiw licensed drainage ditch and will develop a course of action for the water to be released.

Building Canada Fund As the deadline for applications is approaching, Lamont County Administration will develop and submit an application for projects developed under the federal building Canada program.

Council will reconvene Wednesday June 18, 2014, after the ASB meeting sheduled from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
