THE LOCAL RCMP
We are open for business but we are locking our front doors in an effort to "flatten the curve" and do our part to reduce situations where exposure or contamination can occur. As you may know the front counter space of the detachment is very confined and we do not have daily janitorial services. Keeping the front counter disinfected would not be an option. As such we have implemented a sign at the front door instructing the following:
In order to prioritize essential policing services, and reduce unnecessary personal contact, please call 403-947-3420 to speak directly with an RCMP employee.
If assistance can be provided to you over the phone, an employee or officer will do so.
if your request requires personal contact with an officer, an employee will meet with you shortly.
For the safety of all, you may be asked to wear a mask while in the detachment.
If you need officer assistance, and believe you may be ill, please let us know when you make the call so our officers can be prepared ahead of time.
Don't be alarmed if you see employees wearing extra protection.
Fingerprinting for Criminal Record Checks will only be done in exceptional circumstances. Non-urgent fingerprinting and Criminal Record Checks will be available at a later date.
THE VILLAGE OFFICE
The Village Office is CLOSED to the public.
Any payments you wish to make can be made online.
If you have any questions, please call the office.
The Village of Acme has staff working from
home and rotating shifts to ensure we are
able to continue to function as required.
We have put in place measures to ensure the
continuity of our Water and Sewer systems and
are working with the neighboring communities to
ensure this will remain a priority during this time.
Please, do not flush any disinfectant wipes (Lysol, Clorox, etc) down the toilet as they will clog the sewer system.
The transfer site is not accepting any recyclables at this time.
Council & Adminstration
The Mayor, Council, and Administration are staying
informed and are evaluating the situation on a daily
basis as information is released and updates are given
by the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta,
and Chief Medical Officer of Alberta.
This is a moving target, let us work together to stay safe.
The Village office and Council are in constant contact with The Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA).
We have a Regional Field officer who provides us with expert advise to ensure the continuity of the municipality and our community during this time.
We are monitoring the situation to ensure
the continued safety of our community.
ACME FOOD BANK
If you require assistance with food, the Acme Food Bank is available to help. If you are self isolating, please make them aware so they can ensure the safety of their volunteers when arranging delivery of food hampers.
If you are in need or for more information, please call:
