Fire Ban vs. Fire Advisory
For the 2023 season, the Village of Acme will be notifying residents of any fire advisories or fire bans through the Village of Acme website.
WHAT IS A FIRE ADVISORY?
A fire advisory means no open fires or fires requiring a burning permit. An advisory only allows for, recreational fires in covered fire pits, approved fire pits in campgrounds and parks, propane, natural gas, charcoal, and pellet barbeques, grills, or smokers. All other fires are not permitted until the advisory is lifted.
WHAT IS A FIRE BAN?
A fire ban means all fires of any type using any form of fuel are prohibited in the Village.
AMWWP Grant Approval
The Village of Acme has received two grants from the Provincial Government for major infrastructure projects, totaling roughly $4.5 million dollars!
Project 1: Pumphouse / Reservoir
This projects is anticipated to cost upwards of $3.9 million. The Government grant received will cover up to 75% of this amount. The remaining $1 million for this project will be the responsibility of the Village.
The pumphouse / reservoir project will upgrade the pumphouse (which pumps water from the Village's water reservoir into each property in the Village), including back up systems and double the Village's reservoir capacity. Long term, this will allow for community growth.
Project 2: Lift Station / Force Main
This project is anticipated to cost roughly $2 million. The Government grant received will cover up to 75% of this amount. The remaining $500,000 for this project will be the responsibility of the Village.
The lift station / force main will be installed at the far North end of the Heritage area. This will help create a redundancy protection in our wastewater disposal system. This will also provided some necessary wastewater infrastructure to allow for future community growth.
Thank you to the Government of Alberta for their support for these 2 major capital projects!
