The Village of Clive will get $25,000 from the federal government to improve the Clive outdoor rink.
Clive Mayor Anita Gillard welcomed the announcement.
“The outdoor rink in Clive is appreciated by many residents ranging from our youth to adult groups and offers our sports enthusiasts a place to enjoy outdoor events.”
The money is part of the Harper government’s Economic Action Plan 2015 that will help communities across Canada with improvements to local infrastructure through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.
“Our government’s support toward upgrading the outdoor rink facility in the Village of Clive will help foster an energized and positive community,” said Blaine Calkins, Member of Parliament for Wetaskiwin.
Village deals with speed limits, unsightly properties
Village of Clive took aim at inconsistent speed limits posted throughout the village as well as unsightly properties.
The speed limit will be 50 km/hr except in school and playground zones where it will be 30 km/hr.
Council reviewed examples of unsightly properties in the village and directed administration, at its Aug. 10 regular meeting, to take action through enforcement.
