The theme of the evening is Priorities, as in prioritizing our programs and levels of service.

There will be seven stations set up:

  • Public Works,
  • Agricultural Service Board,
  • Economic Development,
  • Planning and Development,
  • Regional Programs
  • Protective Services, and
  • Communications.

At each station, you will be asked to rank that department’s priorities. Once you have completed ranking priorities at all seven stations, you will be entered into a draw to win tickets to see Nickelback on Saturday, June 24 at Rogers Place in Edmonton!

There will also be some machinery on display in the front parking lot. Plus, you’ll be able to show off your driving skills on a grader simulator, and receive some in-person orientation on WebMap, an interactive online mapping application that offers access to a wide range of useful municipal land information.

Also, make sure to arrive early for some pulled pork!

See you there!

Gravel Program

Did you know that our Gravel Program requires approximately 150,000 tonnes of gravel annually?

All of that gravel is required for:

  • re-graveling,
  • arterial roads,
  • washouts,
  • road maintenance patching,
  • dust suppression,
  • road construction,
  • road recovery,
  • culverts, and,
  • gravel sales.

Stockpile sites are utilized to increase hauling efficiencies.

Crushing, meanwhile, replenishes the gravel supply and ensures gravel inventory levels are adequate to support programs.

Exploration is conducted to ensure that future gravel sources are available.

Reclamation is accomplished by stripping overburden and reclaiming previously mined areas utilizing in-house equipment.

Farm Truck Safety Inspections

Did you know that Flagstaff County’s Protective Services Department provides voluntary farm truck safety inspections on registered vehicles over 4,500 kgs for County citizens in an effort to help make our roads safer?

This annual day-long event is typically offered in early spring. Stay tuned for an announcement coming soon about this year’s event.

Cemeteries Assistance Grant Program

Did you know that Flagstaff County provides financial aid of $625 per year to rural community groups operating a cemetery in the County to complete improvements and maintenance.

In 2022, 23 cemeteries received funding through the Flagstaff County Cemeteries Assistance Grant Program.

Eligible expenses include grass cutting, general maintenance and capital expenses including plot surveys, ground improvements, fencing and signage.

Recreation Grant Program

Did you know that Flagstaff County provided $641,268 in recreation funding in 2022 through our Recreation Grant Program?

To support recreation, the County provides conditional recreation grants to the 10 Agricultural Societies within our region based on a predetermined funding formula. Funds help support recreational facilities or physical activities.

Roadside Vegetation Management

Did you know that under our Roadside Vegetation Management Program, we work to control the growth of small brush along roadsides and intersections to enhance road safety and prolong the life of the road infrastructure?

Spot treatment of herbicide application for brush is implemented, as opposed to blanket application, resulting in more environmentally responsible use of herbicide.

Mowing grass and vegetation along arterial, collector and local roads’ municipal right-of-ways is conducted twice a year to improve visibility into the ditches, reduce snow trapping and help prevent wildlife collisions.
