No increases in Atco fees
Clive council, during its regular meeting Oct. 26, gave third and final reading to renew its franchise agreement with Atco Gas with no increases to ratepayers.

“It’s 16.17 per cent and has been the rate since 2008,” said Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)( Carla Kenney.

CAO report to council
CAO Kenney told council she met with the Lacombe Regional Waste Services Commission (LRWSC) and CanPak and discussed disposal at the Prentiss transfer sites.

She said CanPak trucks are having a difficult time unloading during Prentiss’ hours they are open so they have created their own transfer site and are finding it more economical to compact and truck the waste the West Dried Meat Landfill rather than spend time waiting to access the Prentiss site.

LRWSC are unable to accommodate more site hours and don’t need Clive’s waste to go through their facility but will make sure they allow the CanPak trucks in until the Prentiss site closing time.

CAO Kenney said she brought up the issue of missed residential pick ups in Clive so CanPak suggested Clive use front yard pick-up instead as it would help reduce the number of missed households adding that new drivers have difficulty finding various locations and the types of backyard bins.

A request for garbage and recyclable collection proposals was sent to five contractors with submission deadline being Nov. 5 and a start date of Jan. 1, 2016.
