A great place to live, work and play Welcome to the Fall 2017 edition of the Town of Coaldale’s Recreation and Culture Guide. As part of its communication plan the Town of Coaldale publishes these guides three times a year with Summer, Fall and Winter editions. In the pages of these guides you will ﬁnd information on actitivies, programs and events happening in Coaldale. In addition to providing opportunities for local community organizations to promote their events and activities, the guide is also a useful reference for town-based services. Looking for volunteer opportunities in Coaldale? Community organizations, sports groups and other local programs are encouraged to submit their information to the Town to be included in our trio of guides throughout the year. You can volunteer your time with any number of different programs, projects and events in our community. Local businesses are also invited to participate in the guides to promote their services. These guides are just one of the ways the Town is working to help residents stay connected to their community. Communication is a priority for the Town of Coaldale and keeping our residents informed about activities, programs and events is the focus of our recreation and culture guides. The Town also stays connected to the community through the Town website at www.coaldale.ca and through social media. Follow us @CoaldaleAB on Twitter and on Facebook. Coaldale is a growing community and we want everyone, whether they’ve lived here all their lives or just a few months, to feel they can call Coaldale their home. As a Town Council we are proud of the people who live, work and play in Coaldale. Coaldale is a unique community. While we are ideally located in Southern Alberta, close to so many of its wonderful amenities, we also provide residents and visitors with a hometown they can call their own. I hope you’ll take some time to read through this edition of our recreation and culture guide and learn more about the numerous ways to spend your time in Coaldale.

Curbside Composting coming to Coaldale The Town of Coaldale will be rolling out a third stream of waste collection in the Town’s curbside pick-up which already includes garbage and recycling. Plans are in place to bring curbside composting to the community in March 2018. The new green carts will be delivered to local residents in the month of February and will include a packet of information on the composting program including the pick-up schedule and information on what can go in the composting cart. In order to accommodate yard waste the new composting carts will be picked up weekly from March 5 to November 30, switching to bi-weekly pickup through the winter. The carts can be used for organic waste which includes: Fruits, Vegetables, Meat and Seafood, Dairy Products, Baked Goods, Pasta and more. Check our website at www. coaldale.ca for more info.
TIPP spreads tax payments over 12 months Applications for our TIPP (Tax installment Payment Plan) are being accepted now for the 2018 taxation year. 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.
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

A recreation working group will be formed in September 2017, and will be made up of community representatives from many recreation user groups (ice users, field users, aquatics and others). There will also be a number of spots available for citizens-at-large. If youâ€™re passionate about sport and recreation and interested in the future of Coaldaleâ€™s recreational facilities, then this might be an opportunity for you. User groups and individuals are asked to begin considering who they may wish to nominate to be placed on the recreation working group. The formal nomination process will be unveiled by the end of August, so please check the Townâ€™s website, social media feeds and the Sunny South News for more details. Other stakeholders such as our schools and school-aged children, seniors, agencies such as Barons Eureka Warner FCSS, Lethbridge County and the province, will be also be engaged.
For more information please call 403-345-1304 or email email@example.com

Our Story of Service
Town of Coaldale’s Community Services is looking to collect stories and photographs of local residents who have served with the Canadian military. Family members are encouraged to share the stories of their family members with our staff.
Sgt. Steve Slemko, 29 Canadian Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment (S Alta R)
Cindy Hoﬀman, Town of Coaldale Community Services Manager is passionate about learning the stories of Coaldale and Area Veterans who have fought to protect our freedom and she is hoping to share these stories with the community. 156 Coaldale and Area Veteran names have been identified so far, but to date, only two stories are complete, with photographs and narrative. Her hope and goal is to collect the stories and pictures of all 156 Veterans and put together an ever evolving Tribute to our Heroes which will be shared with the community at the annual Remembrance Day Service and other significant dates throughout the year. The goal is to create a permanent location to display and honour the stories of those who have served. She is looking for help to tell the stories of our Coaldale Veterans. If you are a Veteran or a family member who is willing to share photographs and stories of your loved ones please contact Cindy at 403-345-1324, email email@example.com or visit her at The Gem of the West Museum. Time is passing and memories are being left behind. Our Veterans are too important to forget. Please share your stories with the community so that we may remember and honour their sacrifice.

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 2017-18 around the corner 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 34 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.
