Press Release - Whitecourt Town Council Update November 14, 2019

Alberta Children’s Services has adopted a new framework to guide efforts to enhance prevention and early intervention services for children, youth and families.  The Ministry is redesigning its approach to service delivery and Whitecourt will be submitting new proposals for the funding of the following services:

  • Early Childhood Development,
  • Family Community Liaison,
  • Early Childhood Coalition,
  • Parent Link.

Whitecourt has contracted Pall Corporation to install new membrane (filtration) modules at the Whitecourt Water Treatment Plant.  In 2004, Whitecourt completed the expansion of the Water Treatment Plant that included the new filtration system technology.  As planned, the replacement of the membrane modules is required to optimize the water treatment process and flow capacities.  The price to replace the membrane modules came in lower than budgeted for, and has a life span of 10-12 years.

Whitecourt Town Council has approved the deferral of debenture and operating loan payments to 2020 by the Whitecourt Golf & Country Club.  The Club experienced low revenues and attendance in the 2019 season due to poor weather, and requested a deferral on its loan payments.
