TIPP spreads tax payments over 12 months Our TIPP program allows you to make monthly payments from January to December each year. This program is a great way to budget and a convenient and reliable way of ensuring that your tax bill is paid. The town does not charge any administrative fees or penalties provided that your monthly payments are made. If you are interested in enrolling in the program, application forms are available on our website at www.coaldale.ca or at the town oﬃce. Contact Kyley in our tax department at 403-345-1317 for more information. You can apply for TIPP up to to May 31, 2018. If your application is received after Jan. 1, 2018 you will be required to make an initial payment equal to the total of the missed installments for 2018.
E-billing - convenient billing option With E-Bill, residents can receive their bills in a timely manner rather than by traditional mail delivery. Sending bills electronically is also more environmentally responsible as it doesn’t generate any actual paper billing. Not only does E-Bill save time and reduce handling and mailing costs it also gives residents the convenience of being able to access their town bill anywhere they can access their email. Residents can also sign up for pre-authorized debit. You receive your bill at the beginning of the month and that amount is automatically taken out of your account on the last business day of the month. Included with the E-Bill is the Town’s monthly newsletter, Coaldale Connection. If you would like to sign up to receive an E-Bill, please call Taryn in utilities at 403-345-1318. The E-Bill agreement form is on the Town Website at www.coaldale.ca

Items accepted at this site: Cardboard & Box board, Mixed paper, Newsprint & Magazines, Books, Tin Cans, Glass, All electronics, Large metal items and Fridges, Freezers, Water Coolers & Air Conditioners- for which a $20 fee is assessed. Please note this is NOT a location for refundable recyclables.
For any items not on this list please refer to the recycling pamphlet or the town’s website at www.coaldale.ca Spring Clean-up The Town uses a coupon voucher system to help offset the cost to dispose of additional waste. Landﬁll coupons/tokens are used to cover the City of Lethbridge’s disposal fees. These coupons can be used by residents to dispose of additional waste that typically follows spring clean-up, household renovations and other “deep cleans.” The goal of this program is to make spring cleanup and other residential maintenance more convenient and affordable for residents. Additionally, the coupon service can be utilized year round, so home renovations do not have to coincide with an annual, and at times unpredictable, clean-up schedule. For more information on the program go to the Town’s website at coaldale.ca or http://www. coaldale.ca/services/utilities-and-services/

Snow removal season upon us “Please give Town crews room to work safely. If possible avoid streets where snow plowing and snow removal are taking place, obey warning signs and stay clear of equipment.”
With another winter upon us residents are reminded of both their responsibility for snow removal and the Town of Coaldale’s priorities and procedures when it comes to snow removal. Property owners are responsible for removing snow within 24 hours after it falls. When removing snow, do not place it on the roadway as it can block drainage and create icy conditions as the snow melts. Instead, shovel snow onto your lawn and landscaped areas, which will benefit grass and foliage in the spring. The Town’s Community Peace Oﬃcers will be calling on residents who do not comply with the snow removal policy. A notice may be issued to property owners to remove snow or ice and if it is not dealt with the Town can have it removed at the owner’s expense. A ticket can also be issued for not following the bylaw requiring snow to be removed. Snow Plowing: By bylaw the Town has approved prioritized routes for snow removal when 10 cm or 4 inches of snow has accumulated on the town streets. Snow Removal: The removal of plowed snow will commence as soon as practically possible once snow plowing priorities have been completed. Snow removal will concentrate first on priority routes followed by drainage routes. In the case of warm weather conditions priority may be given to designated drainage streets. Please refer to the following page for a map of the snow routes in Coaldale. Snow Route signs can be found along the high priority routes in Coaldale. In accordance with Bylaw 570-R-11-06, the Traﬃc Control and Dangerous Goods Bylaw, once a snow route is declared, citizens living on these routes must park their vehicles in their own driveway or on a street oﬀ of the snow routes. Vehicles not removed will be towed and all expenses for towing will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner. In most cases the snow route will only be active for a maximum of 72 hours but may be extended if weather conditions warrant. As well, as per Bylaw 725-R-03-17, the Community Standards Bylaw, citizens are not allowed to shovel snow onto property owned by the Town of Coaldale. This refers to town roads. Alleys will be done as time permits. Please put garbage and recycling bins back on your property on days when you don’t have pick-up. Sanding: The priority for sanding, when streets become slippery due to ice or packed snow, begins with 20th Avenue and downtown intersections, all intersections accessing highways 3 and 845 and school intersections.
“Please observe snow route signs and be aware of where parking is prohibited when these routes are activated. Activation notification will be issed on the Town’s website and social media channels as well as via traditional media.”
