Municipal Development Plan

The Council of the Town of Magrath wishes to inform residents of the preparation of a Municipal Development Plan (MDP). A MDP is a document to guide the future growth of the community and must address future land use and development, transportation systems, the provision of municipal services and facilities, the coordination of future growth patterns with adjacent municipalities and any other matter relevant to the future of the Town. The Town currently does not have an MDP and is excited to begin this important planning process. Any person wishing to make a representation with respect to this matter, fill out a questionnaire, or to view information relevant to this topic, is welcome to attend this casual, drop-in format meeting on October 20 from 5-7pm.

Compost Bin Reminder

Compost bins must be out on the street by 8:00 AM Friday mornings, between May and October, and should be put out every week to prevent them from becoming too heavy. When heavy the compost bins get more scratched-up and could sustain damage from the arms of the truck having to hold them tighter. Branches are not permitted in the compost bins. Only Town compost bins will be picked-up.

Thank you!

The Town would like to thank all of the summer and pool staff for their good work over the summer. We would also like to thank the sponsors of the free swim; Edwards & Edwards Public Accountants, Leisel’s Buns & More, Schneyder Harvesting and Summit Electrical Solutions.

Welcome Back to School

As children are back in school, we ask that you please respect school zone speed limits and watch out for children crossing the street. Just a reminder the 15 minute drop off zone at the school is just that! You should not be parking in the drop off zone if you are going to be longer than 15 minutes.  Also, the Arena staff parking spaces are for Arena staff and should not be used by anyone else. Peace Officers will be enforcing ALL parking signs and traffic laws. (i.e. U-turns, crossing the centre line, stopping on the road to let children in or out of vehicle, etc.)

IRRIGATION

Please be advised that we will be turning off the Town’s irrigation and blowing out lines, tentatively, within the first week or so of October, based on weather conditions to protect the Town’s lines against frost and associated damage.  If you have underground sprinkler systems it is not the responsibility of the Town to blow out these private systems. If you have any further questions, please contact the Town office at 403-758-3212.
