COMMUNITY SERVICES DIRECTOR’S DESK

Todd Pawsey, Director Community Services

For County residents south of Hwy 12 along the proposed routing of the new InterPipeline Throne to Halkirk installation, please be advised that A & B Pipeliners will soon have a heavy presence in the area as work is scheduled to commence ASAP.  This will include many pipe hauling trucks, heavy excavators and trenchers, as well as earth moving equipment needed to trench and install approximately 80+ km of pipeline.  There will also be many service trucks, welding staff, and contractors along the route.   Please watch the County website for any details regarding which areas they will be working in and on what dates, so you may avoid those areas if possible.  Also, as A & B has secured the laydown and storage yards in Crowfoot Crossing subdivision, there will be increased traffic to the south of Co-op which is an already bustling location.   For more info please contact either the Community Peace Officer or the Director of Community Services.

Coronation RCMP Encouraging Residents to Join the #9PMRoutine

Coronation, Alta. – RCMP along with the County Community Peace Officer are advising the public to ensure their properties are secured and valuables removed from their vehicles.

The Coronation RCMP are requesting residents within Paintearth County follow simple steps for crime prevention, such as those outlined in the #9PMRoutine. Getting in a daily routine of checking the security of your property can deter crime and protect your hard-earned belongings.

Most thefts are crimes of opportunity which means that the criminal is looking for unlocked vehicles or houses where they can easily steal property. By removing valuables from vehicles and by locking cars and homes, we remove the easy opportunity and most criminals will then move on to easier pickings.

The #9PMRoutine recommends:

  • Removing valuables from vehicles.
  • Ensuring vehicles are locked, windows are closed and if possible, parked in a garage.
  • Closing garage doors and windows.
  • Locking all doors in the garage, including those leading into a house.
  • Checking that all house doors – front, back, side and garage – are locked.
  • Ensuring all windows are shut.
  • Turning on an exterior light.

It’s 9 p.m.  Are you locked up and secure for the night? Join the movement by using #9PMRoutine and following our social media accounts on Twitter (@RCMPAlberta) and Facebook (@RCMPinAlberta).

Coronation RCMP encourage citizens to report suspicious persons and vehicles to police. Contact the Coronation RCMP at 403-578-3666 or call your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the "P3 Tips" app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.

RECYCLING

Please make sure when recycling that all containers have been rinsed properly and there is no product left in the containers. Containers which have product left in them are not used for recycling and end up in a landfill. Also, make sure that anything placed in the recycling bins is recyclable. If you are unsure check the County of Paintearth No. 18 website under waste as there is a list of products which are acceptable or ask the Attendant on site.

PROPANE BOTTLES AND AEROSOL CANS

Propane Bottles of any type Do No Go into The Metal Piles. Each Transfer Station has a designated area for propane bottles. When propane bottles are placed into other areas, they create a hazard to people who are working at the sites or residents who use the sites.  Aerosol cans such as WD40, insect repellents and wasp sprays are not to be placed in metal piles or paint recycling containers. These aerosol products must be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Roundup held yearly in the spring. Again, by putting these materials in metal piles or paint bins they may create a risk of serious injury to someone.

RAILWAY RIGHT OF WAY

A reminder the right of way should not be used by ATVs, Snowmobilers or vehicles. The railway right of way is solely for the purpose of a utility corridor and not for recreational use.

Please Remember to Tarp and Tie-Down Your Loads!
