BUDGET + BUSINESS PLAN 2021

MUNICIPAL OVERVIEW The Municipal District of Bonnyville is located in the heart of Northeastern Alberta’s lake country. With 81 named lakes, you are never far from the water. Surrounded by lakes and huge tracts of boreal forest, outdoor adventures are abundant. Rolling fields transition from verdant vegetation to gleaming gold – beauty surrounds you at every turn.

There are a number of hamlets within the M.D.’s 6,064.73 square kilometre boundary – Ardmore, Beaverdam, Beaver Crossing, Cherry Grove, Fort Kent, Iron River, La Corey and Therien. Water and sewer services are provided in the hamlets of Fort Kent and Ardmore, as well as bulk water services. These two hamlets, as well as select subdivisions throughout the M.D., are a part of the door-to-door waste collection program, which uses M.D. supplied black carts. Major subdivisions, with large country residential lots, are situated throughout the municipality. The M.D. surrounds the Town of Bonnyville, the City of Cold Lake and the Village of Glendon. Neighbouring indigenous communities include Cold Lake First Nations, Elizabeth Métis Settlement, Fishing Lake Métis Settlement, and Kehewin Cree Nation. Bordering the M.D. is the Province of Saskatchewan on its east side, Lac La Biche County to the north and west, and St. Paul County to the south.

What a year 2020 has been for all us, not only in the Lakeland Region, Alberta, or Canada, but across the world. COVID-19 has brought all of us new challenges to deal with in our work, personal lives, and communities as a whole and we are all working to get through this together.

I was a proud CAO when I saw how M.D. staff and Council came together to make quick, decisive decisions that made certain we had a sound plan. I assure all M.D. residents we continually monitor our situation to ensure that we are prepared to provide key services during these difficult times. Operationally, 2020 has been a successful year with continued focus on corporate efficiencies, managing change, and meeting Council’s mandate. The new corporate structure has worked well with the four General Managers and all staff working together to get results by rationalizing, planning, and completing the majority of projects in the 2020 Budget and Business Plan.

SUMMARY

KEY FINANCIAL PRINCIPLES, PRACTICES & POLICIES BALANCED BUDGET The Province of Alberta’s Municipal Government Act (MGA) legislates that Council must adopt an operating budget (Section 242) and a capital budget (Section 245) for each calendar year. The MGA further requires that estimated revenue and transfers must be sufficient to pay for the estimated expenditures and transfers. The Act requires municipalities to have a balanced budget. To achieve a balanced budget, the Municipal District of Bonnyville’s budget includes transfers to and from restricted surplus (reserves) as approved in the budget process.

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT & CONTROL The M.D. of Bonnyville maintains a system of internal accounting and administrative controls to ensure the financial information that is presented is relevant, reliable, and accurate and that the assets of the municipality are safeguarded. Council has approved several financial policies to ensure good governance, transparency and fiscal responsibility. These policies govern expenditures, investments, tangible capital assets. A summary of the policies can be found below, while the policies in their entirety can be found in the Appendix section of this document starting on page 62 or online at md.bonnyville.ab.ca/419/Policies. PROCUREMENT POLICY This procurement policy provides the governance framework for purchasing of goods and services and procurement of construction projects for the M.D. of Bonnyville. The policy sets expenditure limits and ensures that items purchased have been approved through the budget process or by Council resolution. TANGIBLE CAPITAL ASSETS POLICY This policy defines what is considered a tangible capital asset and its purpose is to set internal guidelines on the capitalization thresholds and the amortization methods to be used. It provides direction to all departments for recognizing and recording tangible capital assets in accordance with Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) requirements and compliance with generally accepted accounting principles. INVESTMENT POLICY This policy provides guidelines to govern the management of the M.D.’s surplus funds and investment portfolio. The objective of the policy is to ensure adherence to statutory requirements per the MGA, preservation of capital, maintenance of liquidity and maximization of returns.

ACCOUNTING PRACTICES ACCOUNTING The accounting practices of the M.D. of Bonnyville conform to Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for local governments and the Consolidated Financial Statements are prepared using the accrual method basis of accounting in accordance with Public Sector Accounting Standards. AUDIT The MGA requires that Council appoint one or more auditors for the municipality and to have the auditor present annual financial statements to Council. The financial statements of the M.D. of Bonnyville are audited on an annual basis, with the information presented directly to Council by the auditor. The document can be found online at bit.ly/MDBFinancialStatements. Residents and ratepayers can also obtain a physical copy from front desk of the M.D.’s Main Administration building.

BUDGETING The M.D. of Bonnyville prepares its budget using the modified accrual basis. Expenses are recognized as they are incurred and measurable based upon receipt of goods, services, and/or legal obligation to pay. The key difference between the basis of accounting (accrual) and basis of budgeting (modified accrual) is that the M.D. does not budget for amortization. The M.D. of Bonnyville also recognizes the impact on operating costs of capital projects. These operating costs are included in the budget in the year in which the expenditure is to be incurred. All operating costs associated with a capital projects are discussed with Council prior to the approval of the capital project. In 2021, Council anticipates the completion and opening of the first phase of the Kinosoo Adventure Park (capital project), and has budgeted anticipated revenues and expenditures to operate the park. FUND ACCOUNTING The M.D. of Bonnyville does not use fund accounting. However, the municipality has reserves held for specific purposes/future projects. The budget includes transfers to and from reserves. These types of transfers are reported in the year-to-year change in Accumulated Surplus.

FINANCIAL REPORTING Monthly expenditure reports are sent to each department for review, and monthly disbursement reports are presented to Council. Also, on a quarterly basis, financial reports are presented to Council with detail of all unbudgeted expenditures approved by Council motion and a summary of cash position. REVENUES Revenues are budgeted based on trends and responsible, conservative practices. All changes in capacity are reflected in budgeted revenues. Revenue is accounted for in the period in which the transactions or events occurred that gave rise to the revenue. EXPENSES Expenses are recognized in the period that goods and services have been acquired, when liability is incurred, or transfers are due. Expenditures may only be incurred if it is included in the approved operating or capital budget, approved by Council through resolution, or required for an emergency, as defined in policy 2A.002 – Expenditures Not Included in Budget. RESERVES The M.D. of Bonnyville has established specific restricted surplus (reserve) funds for specific purposes. These reserves are to provide for emergent financial needs, stabilize tax rates and to set aside funds to replace vehicles, machinery and equipment, infrastructure, and facilities. These reserves are funded by transfer as approved in the annual budget. All transfers in and out of reserves are approved by Council.

CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT BUDGET OPEN HOUSES The Municipal District of Bonnyville Council scheduled three Budget Open Houses which ran from 7 to 9 p.m.: Monday, November 2 – Flat Lake Hall Tuesday, November 3 – Cherry Grove Hall Monday, November 9 – Beaver River Fish & Game Building, Bonnyville

Two of the physical open houses were held as scheduled. The November 9 event was rescheduled to be held virtually, on Wednesday, November 18, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions put in place for physical gatherings. Attendance at Flat Lake Hall was minimal as the seniors in the area were self-isolating. In Cherry Grove, 25 people attended. The virtual open house reached 5,137 people through a

We need to know that there is volunteer support. Council is discussing the request with the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority.

CORPORATE SERVICES DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW The Corporate Services Department supports the entire organization, assisting both internal and external customers. It encapsulates the Finance, Administration, Information Technology (IT), and Human Resources (HR) departments. The Finance Department is responsible for the management of the municipality’s financial affairs, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, budgeting, financial reporting, treasury management, and payroll. The Administration Department is responsible for customer service, information governance, property assessment and taxation. Assessors determine the property values for residential, farmland, commercial and industrial properties, and coordinate the receipt of assessment values for linear and designated industrial properties from the province. Property assessment and taxation funds most municipal services and supports the funding of public education. As of November 2020, the M.D. had 140 full-time employees. Seasonal and parttime employee numbers fluctuate between winter and summer. HR is responsible

for all employment-related issues and the administration of the employee benefits programs. IT creates and maintains an enterprise-level environment that provides IT services and solutions through innovation and growth for staff and residents. This department manages all computer software and hardware, telephone services, and secure access to all buildings. It also provides technical services to neighbouring municipalities. In 2021, one of the projects on the books for the Corporate Services department, and delivered by IT, is an upgrade to the Diamond System which is the financial processing software used at the M.D.

Council recognizes the economic challenges facing our region, and continues to strive to keep mill rates the same. However, some volatility to the tax revenues will be felt due to changes to the assessment model for oil wells, pipelines, and machinery and equipment, implemented by the provincial government in late 2020. These changes include lowering assessments for less productive oil and gas wells, while continuing the recently introduced 35 per cent assessment reduction on shallow gas wells for three years. Other supports to energy companies will include an exemption from property taxes for three years when drilling new wells and building new pipelines and the elimination of the Well Drilling Equipment Tax province wide for new drills. The anticipated financial impact of the assessment review model on the M.D. is estimated at about $1 million for the 2021 budget year. A special thank you goes to the hard work and effort put forth by the Finance Department, in collaboration with Administration and Communications staff, to produce the 2020 Budget and Business Plan, which received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).

INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW With over 2,400 kilometres of roads throughout the M.D., it should come as no surprise that Infrastructure Services is the largest department - in staff, equipment, and budget - in the M.D. On the heels of five years of record water levels, Infrastructure Services has produced a drainage priority projects plan and map which is expected to be revisited every year to address any significant drainage issues that impact M.D. infrastructure. With the previously established, and recently updated Roads Classification System and the newly created priority roads map, the Transportation Department has a clear vision of its projects looking into the next five years. The capital roads plan for 2021 includes $7.4 million for paving and reconstruction of gravel roads, $1.55 million for subdivision roads, $4.07 million for bridge repairs/ replacements and more than $7 million for other roadworks, including drainage,

MANAGEMENT TEAM

graveling, dust control, rip and relay, shoulder pulls, and pothole repairs. On the Utilities side, there is money in the 2021 budget for upgrades to the sewage system in Ardmore, Fort Kent, and Therien, including lift station pump replacements. The system upgrades will allow for remote monitoring, cutting back on staff travel time and quicker response time for any issues that may arise. In November 2020, the M.D. of Bonnyville took over the operation and ownership of the Bonnyville Regional Airport. The anticipated operating expenditures for 2021 is $98,000 and just over $2 million is budgeted for the construction and design of the taxiway, security fencing, and the purchase of equipment. On the next pages, you’ll find maps laying out the proposed projects and maintenance programs for 2021 and beyond.

ENVIRONMENTAL & PROTECTIVE SERVICES DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW From protecting the environment from pests, to protecting M.D. properties from crime and fire, Environmental and Protective Services has been charged with keeping the M.D. healthy and safe. The department is made up of Agriculture & Waste Services, Public Safety, Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority (BRFA), as well as the internal Health and Safety unit. In 2021, the Waste Services department is set to keep on track with its waste reduction/recycling initiatives, including agriculture plastics recycling and mattress recycling. In the ongoing effort to keep the M.D. litter-free, upgrades to rural bin sites will be made, including the paving of the Marie Lake bin site, and a new, expanded Riverhurst bin site. The Ardmore Landfill will see an expansion to its Class III pit, giving the landfill a

10-year extension. There is also money in the budget for engineering for a Waste to Energy project, which would see household waste incinerated and turned into energy. The Ag Department will continue to focus on overland flooding issues and the excess beaver population the increase of water brings. Clubroot remains top of mind

MATT JANZ General Manager mjanz@md.bonnyville.ab.ca 780.826.3951 Ext. 9320

as the disease slowly works its way further into the M.D. through canola fields. The focus here will be on educating producers and continuing to slow the spread. The always successful Veterinary Services Inc. (VSI) program will continue. In 2020, there were 500 producers enrolled in the program. After a decade of use, Peace Officers in the Public Safety department will receive new body and car cams to ensure their safety while doing patrols. There will also be a new e-ticketing system coming, due to changes by the province. Officers will be concentrating on rural crime reduction with the continuation of the Vacant Home Check and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) programs. Two officers will continue in their roles as School Resource Officers (SROs), providing education and assistance to 23 schools in the region. One of the big line items in the Public Safety budget will be the new funding agreement with the province, which will see the M.D. pay just over $400,000 for the service of the RCMP in 2021, with the requisition increasing in future years. The BRFA will move to its new operations centre just outside of Bonnyville. The new location will see Bonnyville Station 5, EMS, 911 Dispatch, and BRFA Administration all housed under one roof. The new fire halls in Ardmore and Fort Kent will be completed early in 2021.

BUDGET + BUSINESS PLAN 2021

PLANNING & COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW Under the umbrella of Planning and Community Services are the Planning & Development Department and the Parks, Recreation & Culture Department, including Kinosoo Ridge. In 2021, Planning & Development will see the addition of a one-year term contract Environmental Coordinator to focus on the restoration, protection and preservation of riparian areas along lakeshores in the M.D. With a motto of #TakeItToTheLake, Council felt it was important to focus on the wellbeing of the waterbodies, including improving water quality and habitats for fish and wildlife, for the enjoyment and quality of life for current and future residents and visitors. The department will continue to review Major Area Structure Plans (MASPs), with 2021 seeing reviews and updates to the Ardmore, La Corey and Cherry Grove

MANAGEMENT TEAM

MASPs. The M.D.’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and the Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) with Cold Lake is also scheduled for review in 2021. Council recognizes recreation is a key component for many things – physical and mental health, quality of life, resident retention, and attracting new residents and businesses for the economic diversity of the municipality. As such, there is a focus

CAROLINE PALMER General Manager cpalmer@md.bonnyville.ab.ca 780.826.3171 Ext. 9251

on updating current recreation opportunities, while planning for the future. The 2021 budget will see the first phase of the Aerial Park at Kinosoo Ridge completed, transforming the ski resort into a year-round adventure destination. When it comes to snow, Kinosoo Ridge will replace the 41-year-old Green Chair in 2021, at a cost of $2.7 million. The 15 community halls and recreation societies, three local seniors’ societies, three agricultural societies, two local Chambers of Commerce and the Bonnyville and Cold Lake Museums will continue to receive operating grants through the Parks, Recreation & Culture department. A 6.9-acre recreation park in La Corey is on the books, with the help of the community, which has been fundraising for the addition. The park will include a new playground for all ages, baseball diamond, and walking trail. The outdoor covered ice rinks funded in 2020 will be completed in 2021.

The Master Recreation Plan will be adopted in 2021, which will guide the future of recreation in the municipality. In 2021, funds have been set aside to survey and design boat launches at four lakes — Angling, Ethel, North Shore on Moose Lake, and Manatokan — and to investigate public accesses on the Beaver River. Along these same lines, the M.D. will be developing a user-friendly mooring system at Vezeau Beach on Moose Lake, which will allow for boat parking. The Parks department is looking at the feasibility of repurposing the current Vezeau Beach mooring system at the Crane Lake West campground.

TANGIBLE CAPITAL ASSETS POLICY

POLICY Tangible Capital Assets Policy 2B.013 Section:

2.0 General Government and Administrative Services - B. Finance

Authority:

General Manager of Corporate Services

Statement

The Municipal District of Bonnyville (M.D.), in accordance to Section 3150 of the Public Sector Accounting Board Handbook of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, must comply with the recommendations for the disclosure of tangible capital assets, effective January 1, 2009.

Purpose

The policy is to provide the financial definition of a tangible capital asset within the M.D. and to set internal guidelines on the capitalization thresholds and amortization methods. The guidelines are outlined in Attachment A for this policy and are subject to change over time, at the discretion of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) in consultation with the municipal auditors, to meet the needs of the municipality.

Definitions

For the purposes of this policy: (1)

“Tangible capital assets” means non-financial assets having physical substance that: (a) are held for use in the production or supply of goods and services; (b) are held for rental to others; (c) are held for administrative purposes; (d) are held for the development, construction, maintenance or repair of other tangible capital assets; (e) have useful economic lives extending beyond 36 months; (f) are to be used on a continuing basis; (g) are not for sale in the ordinary course of operations.

(2)

“Betterment” is a cost incurred to enhance the service potential of a tangible capital asset. Costs are considered to be part of the cost of a tangible capital asset and would be added to the recorded cost of the related asset.

Procedure

Financial Statements (1) The M.D. must meet the following recording requirements for the financial statements: (a) Tangible capital assets should be recorded at cost. If the municipality does not have historical cost accounting records, other methods to estimate the cost and accumulated amortization of the assets will be needed. (b) Initial roadway infrastructure assets shall be valued in accordance with costing formulas provided by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs. As well, initial bridges and Date Adopted: January 28, 2005

culverts assets shall be valued in accordance with costing formulas provided by Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation. The cost, less any residual value, should be amortized over its useful life in a rational and systematic manner appropriate to its nature and use by the municipality. The amortization of the costs should be accounted for as expenses in the statement of operations. The amortization method and estimate of the useful life of the remaining unamortized portion of a tangible capital asset should be reviewed on a regular basis and revised when the appropriateness of a change can be clearly demonstrated. When conditions indicate that a tangible capital asset no longer contributes to the municipality’s ability to provide goods and services, or that the value of future economic benefits associated with the tangible capital asset is less than its book value, the cost of the tangible capital asset should be reduced to reflect the decline in the asset’s value. The net write-downs of tangible capital assets should be accounted for as expenses in the statement of operations and should not be reversed. The difference between the net proceeds on disposal of tangible capital asset and the net book value of the asset should be accounted for as a revenue or expense in the statement of operations. Fully amortized assets still in use need to be recorded. Tangible capital assets should be accounted for and reported as assets on the statement of financial position. The financial statements should disclose, for each major category of tangible capital assets, the total cost, accumulated amortization and net book value at the beginning and end of the period and the total additions, disposals, write-downs and amortization for the period. The financial statements should also disclose other information about tangible capital assets such as: (i) amortization methods and rates; (ii) tangible capital assets under construction; (iii) donated tangible capital assets; (iv) the nature of tangible capital assets recorded at a nominal value or considered to be works of art or historical treasures; (v) the amount of interest capitalized in the period.

Capitalization Thresholds Capitalization thresholds will vary based on the Major Asset Classifications of the municipality. Minor Asset Classifications shall be determined by each department of the municipality on an asneeded basis and must comply with the threshold limits listed. Betterments are to be capitalized when the unit cost of the betterment meets the betterment definition and meets or exceeds 50% of the threshold limit as listed above. Date Adopted: January 28, 2005

GRANT REVENUE RECOGNITION POLICY

POLICY Grant Revenue Recognition Policy 2B.019 Section:

2.0 General Government and Administrative Services - B. Finance

Authority:

General Manager of Corporate Services

Statement (1)

The Municipal District of Bonnyville (M.D.) is eligible to receive grant funding under various government programs. The recognition of the revenues from these programs is determined in accordance with the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) requirements specifically Section PS 3410 – Government Transfers which is attached. Paragraph 07 of PS 3410 states: “Government transfers should be recognized in a government’s financial statements as expenditures or revenues in the period that that the events giving rise to the transfer occurred, as long as: (a) the transfer is authorized, (b) eligibility criteria, if any, have been met by the recipient; and (c) a reasonable estimate of the amount can be made.

The basis for determining the amount recognized for any particular transfer should be applied consistently from year to year. Judgment will be required to account for transfers in a manner that best reflects the substance of the underlying events rather than the form or funding pattern.” (2)

The PSAB requirements allow revenues to be recognized (recorded) many years into the future. This may result in: (a) Grant programs not being available to future municipal Councils, or (b) Recognized revenues possibly extending beyond the life of the grant program.

Purpose

To put in place an internal procedure that limits how far into the future grant revenues will be earned in regard to government programs that are subject to annual government budget allocations.

Procedure (1)

For government programs that: (a) Allow funding to be earned beyond their current fiscal year, and (b) Have annual funding allocations approved in their annual budgets; the M.D. shall limit the total amount of grant revenue earned such that the total grant receivable under a specific government program at the end of the fiscal year does not exceed the total of: (i) all funds the municipality is eligible to receive under the program for the current and previous years that have not yet been received, plus (ii) an amount equivalent to the municipality’s current year’s funding allocation for the program.

Authority:

Council

Statement

The Municipal District of Bonnyville No. 87 (M.D.) recognizes there are some benefits derived from Agricultural/Industry pursuits in licensing of roadways.

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is two-fold: (1) To grant a license or permit for the temporary occupation or use of a roadway in accordance with the Traffic Safety Act (TSA), Chapter T-6 revised Statutes of Alberta 2000, as amended; and (2)

To adopt a process for M.D. Council’s consideration of a roadway closure that provides for the proposed road to remain in the control of the M.D. and allows for the gating and/or licensing of the roadway to a third party.

Definitions

For the purposes of this policy: (1)

Policy

“Council” means the duly elected Council of the M.D.

(1)

The process for a proposed road closure by way of a license may be initiated by an administrative review, Council inquiry, or receipt of a public application in accordance with section 13(1) of the Traffic Safety Act (TSA) and the M.D. Licensing of Road Allowances Procedure.

(2)

If the process results in a closure by way of a license to a third party, the third party will be required to enter into a Roadway License Agreement (Attachment A) and be responsible to pay the annual license fee as noted in the M.D. Fee Bylaw.

(3)

An initial administrative review will take place to determine the feasibility of the proposed closure. Some matters that will be considered are the number of properties and property owners that may be impacted, whether there is agreement among the adjacent landowners, the reason for the proposed closure, and Council’s direction.

(4)

If the closure process continues beyond the initial administrative review, referrals will be sent to all adjacent landowners, to utility companies (telecommunications, power authorities, gas distribution, etc.), and to any owner/operator of any pipeline or right-ofway that crosses the subject closure area. If the road allowance is adjacent to Crown Lands or a water body, a referral will be sent to Public Lands (Alberta Environment and Parks, Approvals & Disposition Services).

Authority:

General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services

Statement

The Municipal District of Bonnyville (M.D.) Agricultural Service Board is committed to protecting municipal infrastructure from water movement problems related to beaver activity and providing the option to blast beaver dams on private land. The beaver is not a declared pest or nuisance under the Agricultural Pest Act. The M.D. does not have a legislated duty to provide beaver control on privately owned or provincial lands. However, beaver dams are the cause of frequent flooding in watersheds, creeks, and coulees within the municipality when heavy spring run-off and summer rainstorms occur.

Purpose

Beavers pose many problems in an expanding human environment including private dwellings and agricultural land. The M.D. anticipates that such problems will occur from time to time to varying degrees of severity. This policy provides the guidelines required to remain flexible but prevent undue municipal expense.

Definitions

For the purposes of this policy: (1)

Policy

â&#x20AC;&#x153;ASBâ&#x20AC;? means the M.D. Agricultural Service Board duly appointed by M.D. Council.

(1)

Landowners with beaver issues on private land (i.e. agricultural crop and pasture lands, yards, etc.) are encouraged to rectify the issue independently.

(3)

If a landowner chooses, they may manage beaver control on their own property in accordance with the Alberta Wildlife Regulation and receive compensation from the M.D. by signing a Landowner Beaver Control Agreement (see Attachment A). This agreement must be approved by the General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services or his/her designate for the areas specified in the agreement prior to beaver removal.

(b) Priorities for brushing will be as follows: (i) Unobstructed access for emergency vehicles (ambulance/police/fire/peace officers); (ii) Improvement of sightlines; (iii) Improvement of drainage of surface water from road surface; (iv) Improvement of accessibility for snow clearing equipment; (v) Mitigation of snow drifting; (vi) Mitigation of icing conditions caused by tree shading across roadways; (vii) Reduction in incidence of vehicle-animal impacts; (viii) Reduction of deadfall on roads; and (ix) Soft roads and low-lying areas during winter season. (c) If requested by the landowner, ornamental brush may, at the discretion of the General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services or his/her designate, be left in the municipal road allowance within 30 meters of the access to or directly in front of a residence providing safe sight lines are maintained. (d) Landowners clearing trees or shrubs on their own land that wish to clear into the adjacent road allowance may apply to enter into an agreement with the M.D. by completing a Roadside Backsloping Application (Attachment A) and submitting it to the Environmental and Protective Services Department. (i) The application must be received by the Environmental and Protective Services Department prior to any of the work commencing on road allowance. (ii) The application may not be approved if the road along which the backsloping is proposed is already scheduled to be completed by the M.D. within the next two (2) years. (iii) Once the brushing and backsloping is completed the Agriculture Fieldman, or his/her designate, will schedule a post-inspection. (e) No compensation or other amount will be payable by the M.D. for brush removal from a road allowance except as specifically provided for in written agreement between the M.D. and a landowner.

Developed Road Allowance Brush and Vegetation Control Policy 5A.016 (2)

Spraying The M.D. will schedule spraying annually in accordance with the Developed Road Allowance Brush and Vegetation Control Procedure, with the exception of areas that are deemed a priority by the General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services, or his/her designate. Spraying will be utilized to control the re-growth of brush and to eradicate, control, and suppress the spread of noxious weeds. (a) Public notification for spraying within the M.D. will be released through local newspapers and M.D. social media sites online. This notification will occur in the spring before spraying is scheduled to begin. (i) If a landowner is opposed to spraying adjacent to property they own, the landowner can sign a Weed Control Agreement (Attachment C). They must complete this agreement and submit it to the Environmental and Protective Services Department within four (4) weeks of the public notification. (ii) If a landowner enters into a Weed Control Agreement with the M.D. and fails to complete the required control work by July 15th of the same year, the M.D. reserves the right to complete the work using whatever means necessary, including spraying. (iii) Weed Control Agreements do not carry over year to year; they must be completed and submitted annually. Note: The M.D. will not accept a previous year’s agreement for landowners who fail to submit a Weed Control Agreement before the indicated deadline. (b) Road right-of-way’s cannot be used as the 25-foot required buffer between organic crops and the land where pesticides are used. (c) Spraying will not take place where a Weed Control Agreement has been signed except as provided for in subsection (a)(ii) herein, within the legislative setback from water bodies, or other areas deemed sensitive by the General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services, or his/her designate. (d) Non-compliance of a weed notice may result in fees that will be billed back to the landowner to cover the costs associated with the M.D. controlling the weed infestation. Additionally, a $500 administration fee will be applied. If the bill is unpaid, these charges will be applied to the landowner’s tax roll.

(3)

Mowing Mowing along developed road allowances within the M.D. will be scheduled annually in accordance with the Developed Road Allowance Brush and Vegetation Procedure. Priority areas to be mowed include areas where herbicides are deemed not to be acceptable including but not limited to roads with a high volume of traffic, or sensitive crops. Identified riparian areas shall be exempt from seasonal mowing, except where specified by Administration. All M.D. recreational property including but not limited to campgrounds, parks, and trails will be mowed by the Planning and Community Services Department.

When these weeds are present they will be removed, controlled, or suppressed by the method deemed most suitable by the General Manager of Environmental and Protective Services, or his/her designate.

This policy applies to all public roads under the direction, control, and management of the M.D. with the exception of any roads deemed exempt by Council through resolution.
