Bylaws Pending Approval

Borrowing Bylaw Amendment 2020-01 Bow Valley Trail Wastewater Upgrade Construction

Summary of proposed bylaw

Council approved a project to upgrade the wastewater mains along Bow Valley Trail in 2018 as part of the 2019-2020 capital budget. Original costs were estimated at $1.4M and council approved a borrowing bylaw in the amount of $1.3M. Since then, construction methods have had to change to deal with groundwater issues. On Jan. 14, 2020, Council gave first reading to a bylaw that would authorize borrowing of an additional $1.2M. Currently, the bylaw is schedule to return to Council for second and third readings on March 3, 2020.
