Council approved Coun. Robin Kurpjuweit’s motion to authorize the Reeve and CAO to sign a Memorandum of Agreement to cost share with Alberta Transportation for Dunmore’s Charles Street, Eagle Butte Road and Highway 1 intersection at council’s Oct. 2 meeting.
The second part of the motion was for council to increase the county’s portion for a total funding contribution of $400,000 with the funding coming from the county’s Accelerated Rehab Fund.
It was at the June 5 meeting that council approved a motion to receive the Dunmore Future Developments Traffic Impact Assessment as information and send a letter to Alberta Transportation requesting the province to provide 50 per cent of the costs associated with traffic installation and roadway improvements to the intersection with a a $370,000 cost.

Council asked administration to come back with enforcement options for rocks in ditches at the Sept. 18 meeting and under direction it will now state “If an enforcement officer forms the opinion that property is in contravention of this bylaw, the enforcement officer may issue a written direction to the owner of the property.
“The direction may require the owner of the property who is in contravention of this bylaw to address the matter in the manner specified and may state a time within which the person must comply with the direction.”
The county does not have to enforce this bylaw but may take into consideration the available municipal budget and personnel resources.
