Spring Cleanup 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 cleanup, 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, cleanup schedule. For more information on the program go to Town’s website at coaldale.ca or http://www.coaldale.ca/services/utilities-and-services/

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.

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 Winter 2016-17 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. First priority is always given to emergency access to allow emergency vehicles to and from all areas of town. Second priority is school accesses, followed by the Industrial Park roads, arterial and collector roads. The final two priorities are drainage routes and local roadways. Please refer to the Map of Snow Routes on Page 31 for the priority route designations for snow removal. The initial priority will be to provide access through plowing to the centre or side of the street as is applicable so as not to block emergency access, drainage, driveways, intersections, etc. Where the snow would block emergency vehicle access, it will be removed as soon as practical. Snow is plowed into windrows in the centre of the road except where the road is adjacent to a park or open space, when it will be plowed to the side of the road. Once plowing is completed, intersections will be cleared of windrows as soon as practically possible. Snow plowing on 20th Street/Highway 845 is a jointly held responsibility between the Town and the Provincial Government’s maintenance contractor. The Town is responsible for plowing the parking lanes. “Please observe snow route signs and be aware of where parking is prohibited when these routes are activated.” 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. 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. 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.
