Publication to document Stettler’s historical roots

Documenting the origins and changing face of Stettler from 1905 to 1910 is the focus of a new Stettler Museum campaign.

At the May 3 Stettler Town Council meeting, Alf Erickson outlined the Museum’s goal of compiling and printing Stettler’s history for the time period.  The project will cost $3000 for 1200 copies which will be available free of charge to the public.  Erickson requested that Stettler town council consider providing a grant for the project.  Council made no decision at the meeting.

Low bid wins contract
Tender bids continue to come in well under budget for planned projects. The 2016 sidewalk replacement tender went to Greg Patterson who bid $91,170 to replace miscellaneous sections of concrete. The budget for the project is $130,000.

Two other companies bid on the project: J. Branco and Sons $116,276.95 and Proform Concrete $129,372

First reading passed
Bylaw 2083-16 passed first reading at the meeting. If the bylaw passes third reading, it would rezone two residential general lots, 4917 and 4919 53 Street, to commercial neighbourhood district.

The owners have requested the rezoning in order to develop an Escape Room Facility in the lower level of the structure. The upper level currently houses Remedy Art Studio.

Trade show draws crowd
Over 2900 people visited the recent Stettler Trade Show according to a Stettler Board of Trade media release.  Over 125 exhibitors were present at this year’s show.
