Member-at-Large Vacancy


Every October, Council holds an Organizational meeting and appoints Councillors and Members-at-Large to represent the Municipal District on various organizations within our region. Most appointments are for a one year term. This October, we are looking for residents to represent the Municipal District on the following boards:

Honey Bee Quarantine


Alberta Agriculture and Forestry has established a quarantine area for bee colonies in a portion of the Peace River Region due to confirmation of a new pest: the Small Hive Beetle. The quarantine was put in place July 19 for 45 days; however, it could also be extended if necessary. This quarantine borders our region, but does not presently affect apiculture operations within the MD.
