FLOODING DISASTER RECOVERY PROGRAM APPLICATION
The Province of Alberta has a Disaster Recovery Program (DRP) to assist communities who experience damage from natural disasters. The Village of Acme has submitted an application through the DRP for the overland flooding that the Village experienced on May 31, 2020.
The application process takes time and the Village of Acme is waiting for approval at this time. If the Village of Acme is approved, affected residences and businesses may apply under the Village of Acme for assistance. More information on this application process will be released as it becomes available.
Information that may be required from residences and businesses if the Village’s application is approved include:
Time spent on clean up from the overland flooding
Receipts for all expenses related to the overland flooding
Cost of damages/quotes from insurance from the overland flooding
As part of the Village of Acme’s application, we will need to know the number of homes and businesses affected with flooding, the number of residents affected, the number of tenants affected, and the approximate cost of the damages. If you have not informed the Village Office of the damage which you experienced in your home or business from the overland flooding, we ask that you call the office at 403-546-3783 or email email@example.com and let us know. Please let us know even if you only had a small amount of water come into your home or business.
We will let you know more information regarding the DRP when it becomes available to us.

MESSAGE FROM - RCMP
The Three Hills RCMP Detachment is attempting a new endeavor and
looking for assistance from residents.
When there is a break-in or theft in a business area, the RCMP can use surveillance footage to track the stolen items. In residential areas this is more
difficult without access to residential security systems.
The RCMP wants to build a secure and confidential directory of residents with video surveillance. This will allow the RCMP to contact those residents who are on the list to obtain their residential footage when necessary to help locate stolen items.
Any residents in Kneehill County interested in participating by placing their names on this secure list, can call Constable Ferrier at the RCMP Detachment office at 403-443-5539 or send her an email at
For residents who have experienced flooding, please refer to the following resources from Alberta Health Services regarding steps for cleaning your home after a flood:
