Residential Sidewalk Clearing Program

Fairview Town Council’s vision of providing a quality, sustainable, engaged and attractive community, now includes the Residential Sidewalk Clearing Program.

This snow removal program will run as a trial for the 2020-2021 winter season, and as Public Works crew begin working with the new machinery we ask the public to remain patient as we process the best possible work plan for our community.

Crews will begin testing the new equipment shortly and throughout this trial season they will be providing snow removal for all sidewalks in residential areas of Fairview.

With this new Council initiative, there will be NO Bylaw Enforcement of residential sidewalk clearing; however as this is the trial season we are not able to anticipate the time duration for sidewalk clearing.

We welcome you to continue clearing your residential area if you are not satisfied waiting for Public Works to clear in your area.

Alberta Relaunch – Alberta Health

As part of the Alberta Relaunch, Alberta Health has strongly recommended wearing masks/face coverings when going out to public locations where you may end up close to other people. This includes grocery shopping, personal services and the post office, among others. Wearing a mask is important even if you don’t feel sick, as COVID-19 is asymptomatic (meaning you don’t feel sick) for some people and for the first few days for almost everyone. Wearing a mask doesn’t do very much to protect you, but it can protect others from you, which is why we all have to work together.

Mandatory Mask bylaw for Consideration

Council wishes to thank all residents and town visitors for their understanding and cooperation during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage everyone to wear a face-covering to help reduce opportunities for COVID-19 spread in our community.

Boil Water Advisory Issued – NOW LIFTED

Due to the failure of equipment responsible for chlorinating our water, inadequate chlorine disinfection may result. A precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for water from the Fairview Water Treatment plant. This includes all water users within the Town of Fairview, the Hamlet of Bluesky, the Fairview Water Co-op and the truck fill stations in Fairview and Bluesky.

UPDATE: Once repairs are completed, a water sample is sent for testing and then AHS must authorize the lifting of the advisory. We are currently estimating that the advisory should be lifted by Wednesday.

UPDATE 09-Aug-2020 5:00 PM: Repairs were completed shortly after the problem was detected and many tests have been run by our Public Works staff throughout the town to test the chlorine levels in the water, which appear to be acceptable. However, due to an abundance of caution, it was determined by the appropriate officials to declare a precautionary boil water advisory. Due to couriers and testing facilities not being open today, it is expected that the advisory will remain on until Wednesday. Please continue to follow all advisory information until such time that the advisory is lifted.

UPDATE 12-Aug-2020 9:30 AM: We have been notified that the timeline for testing and removal of the advisory has been extended to tomorrow (Thursday, 13-Aug-2020). We will continue to notify on this page as we receive more information. Please continue to follow all advisory information until such time that the advisory is lifted by AHS.

UPDATE 13-Aug-2020 2:00 PM: We are still awaiting confirmation of the test results and the advisory to be lifted by AHS. Our staff are doing all they can to encourage all third parties to expedite the procedures.

UPDATE 14-Aug-2020 3:10 PM: We have received notification from AHS that the boil water advisory has now been lifted.
