Forestburg Council

New home builders arrived to express concerns, previously voiced in December, regarding a bylaw on utility hookups to recently constructed homes at the Forestburg Town Council met January 15.

Council had decided to cease paying for water and gas hookups to new homes as no other town in the county pays for those services. However this caused several new citizens of Forestburg to receive unexpected costs on building their homes.

Councilor Dayna Oberg tabled the debate over the gas hookup to next meeting, as more information is needed from Phoenix Gas before they come to a final decision. However Council has agreed to revisit the Water hookup bylaw next meeting.

Payments were also approved for the emergency repair of the sewer lift station and plans were made to discuss changing the snow removal policy next meeting.
