    Streets, sidewalks, lanes, and trails

    We are responsible for the repair and maintenance of all streets, sidewalks, lanes and trails within Town limits, except Highway 18 and Highway 44, which Alberta Transportation maintains.

    We are committed to ensuring that roads, residential streets, sidewalks, lanes and trails are safe for vehicles and pedestrians. We assess all concerns and perform repairs on a priority basis.

    Please obey all posted street signs and traffic control measures when you see our crews working on or near any roadways. These measures protect staff and ensure work is completed quickly and safely. We will give advance notice for specific construction projects to businesses and residents to minimize any service disruptions.

    Contact us to report a problem

    The quick repair of potholes, tripping hazards and signs is a high priority. Please contact 780-349-0237 during business hours, Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or call 780-349-0178 for help after-hours.

    You can submit a report or a bylaw complaint online by completing the forms located at bylaw complaints or report a problem.

    Asphalt maintenance and pothole repair

    Asphalt repairs are completed throughout the spring and summer. We conduct visual inspections regularly, and problem areas are prioritized based on severity.

    Reporting a pothole is very helpful, and we encourage residents to let us know by the location through our online service request.

    Road and lane grading

    Staff regularly inspect back lanes, and problem areas are addressed on a priority basis.

    Sidewalk repairs

    We conduct visual inspections regularly, and problem areas are prioritized based on severity. Any hazardous sidewalks and tripping hazards brought to our attention will be investigated, and repairs will be conducted on a priority basis.

    Street sweeping

    Residential street sweeping occurs every spring and takes approximately four weeks to complete.

    All street cleaning activities are coordinated in conjunction with our waste collection service provider and will not affect regular pick-up days.

    Watch for signs in your neighbourhood. No parking signs are placed in residential subdivisions before the work starts. Do not park on the street and move any parked vehicles or trailers during the posted times.

    Remove driveway gutter ramps and other on-street obstructions (basketball nets, waste collection carts, etc.)

    Damaged trail sections will be maintained or repaired throughout the summer.  

    Weed control

    Dandelions are targeted in the spring in local parks, greenbelts and sports fields as required. Thistle and other noxious and prohibited noxious weeds are targeted in July and August throughout the town. Parks and Open Spaces monitors and treats weed infestations throughout the season.

    Residents are responsible for controlling noxious weeds on their property, adjacent boulevards, and behind their back fence adjacent to their lane, if applicable.
