**Important Notice: Upcoming Drainage Remediation in Grand Coulee**

August 24, 2023

Greetings, Residents of Grand Coulee,

We hope this message finds you well. We wish to inform you about an upcoming project that will enhance our town’s infrastructure. Commencing from the week of August 30th, you will observe the mobilization of equipment on the east side of our town. The purpose? To undertake significant improvements to our drainage ditches – a vital component of our community’s functionality and safety.

As guardians of our town’s upkeep, we understand that the forthcoming modifications to the town easements at the front of your properties may raise questions. The town easements, extending along the frontage of every property, are designated for effective drainage and potential road maintenance. These planned enhancements might involve adjustments to the landscape and potential replacements or adjustments of culverts in your driveways.

In an effort to keep you well-informed, we are committed to providing updates through multiple platforms. Look out for notifications on our official Facebook page, informative posters strategically placed throughout the town, on our dedicated website, and within the town office’s bulletin board. Acknowledging the fluid nature of this project, we recognize the importance of ensuring that you are apprised of the specific timeline when your street will undergo construction.

During this period, we have designated Memorial & Meadow and the vicinity of Saskatchewan Drive for parking purposes. We understand that construction activities may necessitate the temporary relocation of vehicles. This allocation is intended to facilitate both your convenience and the smooth progress of construction operations. We will provide maps shortly for parking locations.

Should you have any inquiries or require clarifications, please feel free to contact our office at 306-352-8694. We are here to provide assistance and address any concerns you may have.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your patience and cooperation as we strive to enhance the drainage infrastructure of our beloved Grand Coulee. We share in your anticipation of witnessing the positive outcomes of these efforts – an improved and more secure town environment.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of discussions held during our meeting on July 25th. As we embark on this endeavor, we are also initiating the preparatory stages for road surface remediation in 2024. While this involves a formal tender process, we commit to keeping you informed of the developments as they unfold.

Thank you for your continued support. Together, let us pave the way for a more resilient and prosperous Grand Coulee.

RINK Shack June 15, 2023

Attention Grand Coulee residents,

We regret to inform you that we are facing ongoing concerns regarding the misuse and vandalism of our town facilities in the recreational areas. Once again, we have received reports of individuals playing with water taps and engaging in other disruptive activities. In order to address this issue, we have decided to shut off the external water source. Any groups or individuals in need of water or watering facilities must now contact the town office or the Foreman to arrange access.

Furthermore, due to the persistent problems at the ice rink and its surroundings, we are considering the installation of motion detector cameras. It is unfortunate that we have to resort to this measure, but we believe it is necessary to ensure the safety and financial well-being of our entire town and its facilities. We remain committed to providing our citizens in Grand Coulee with a wide range of recreational facilities and options. However, our ability to continue offering these services depends on our ability to oversee and maintain them effectively.

We kindly request everyone to be mindful of their actions and considerate towards their neighbors. Let us all strive to have a wonderful summer while respecting and preserving our shared resources.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Important Road and Drainage Project Update for Ratepayers

Dear valued ratepayers,
We would like to provide you with an update on the ongoing road improvement and drainage project that is currently underway. As you may have noticed, we have contracted skilled workers to enhance our roads by pulling material from the sides and implementing a road crowning technique. This approach aims to facilitate easier water runoff from the roads, ultimately improving their condition.
We are pleased to announce that the initial phase of the project, involving the roadwork, has been completed. Specifically, a portion of Railway Avenue has received a layer of high-quality reclaimed asphalt, which has been properly packed. This serves as an example of the desired end result we are striving for.
However, it is important to note that this is just the beginning of a larger endeavor that will require time and effort to accomplish. Our next crucial step is to accurately determine the elevations of the drainage ditches running along the streets. We anticipate receiving this information within the next couple of weeks, along with a proposal to address the issue. Once we have these details in hand, we will move forward with the next phase of the project, which includes addressing additional roads.
We kindly ask for your continued patience and understanding as we progress through this undertaking. We understand that it may not be a straightforward process of fixing the roads and expecting an immediate resolution. There are various factors we must consider, including the condition of the roads and ensuring that any improvements made can be effectively maintained over time. Additionally, it is essential to address the drainage concerns to prevent future complications that may further impact the roads.
We sincerely appreciate your unwavering patience thus far. Although you may observe a slightly increased amount of dust during this construction period, please understand that it is an unavoidable consequence of the process. Our intention is to avoid spending your hard-earned money on expensive dust control measures, only to have them disturbed and rendered ineffective by subsequent digging. We strive to make prudent decisions to maximize the value of the funds entrusted to us by our ratepayers.
We will continue to keep you updated as progress unfolds. Your support and understanding are invaluable as we work towards improving our roads and drainage system. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
Town Administration
Road Work

Dear Grand Coulee Ratepayers,

We are thrilled to share some great news with you. Starting June 13th, the much-awaited road construction project in Grand Coulee will commence. Our primary focus will be on re-crowning the roads and rectifying low spots, ensuring smoother and safer drives for everyone. This is a multi-phase endeavor aimed at addressing both the roads and drainage systems, with the initial phase concentrating on road improvements.

As we move forward, the timeline for subsequent steps of road construction and drainage correction is not yet confirmed. We will keep you updated through newsletters, Facebook, and our websites. Please stay tuned for any announcements or changes.

The tentative schedule for the road repairs is as follows: on Tuesday, June 13th, work will begin on Centennial Drive, Railway Avenue, Assiniboia Avenue, and Maple Avenue. Once these areas are completed, we will proceed from east to west throughout the town to work on other roads.

If you notice construction activities or preparations taking place on your street, we kindly request that you remove your vehicles from the roadway. To accommodate you during this time, the town has designated parking areas at Memorial Park and Meadow Park.

We sincerely appreciate your patience as we address the long-awaited road repairs this spring. Your understanding is invaluable as we strive to make the best use of the available budget to tackle numerous issues related to the roads and drainage systems. Rest assured, we are actively exploring options to address all these concerns and will present them to the town for further discussion in the near future.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. Together, we can enhance the infrastructure of our beautiful town.


Notice to Our Ratepayers: Renovation and Repair Updates for Community Hall/Town Office

We are delighted to announce that the much-awaited renovation of our community hall and town office is finally underway. After careful consideration and evaluation, the Town of Grand Coulee has awarded the mechanical work for repairing the attic, crawl space and ventilation system to Town & Country Heating and Plumbing.

The demolition phase is scheduled to begin on June 7th, and we anticipate completing these portions of the renovation and repair project by August 31st. Additionally, our council and administration are currently in the process of obtaining quotes and recommendations for the remediation of mold in certain areas of the hall, church, and office. Once we have received these recommendations, we will be inviting tenders to complete the necessary renovations.

We want to emphasize that these renovations are vital to ensure the longevity of our community hall building. We understand that this is an essential asset for our town, and we are committed to maintaining and improving it. We are actively working on developing feasible and financially sustainable budget plans to address all the issues in the town of Grand Coulee.

During the renovation period, the community hall will be closed until August 31st. We are excited about the upcoming improvements, as they will result in a fresh and comfortable environment within the building. We aim to provide you with a more pleasant experience when using the facility. If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact our office and speak with the CAO or visit us in person.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and support as we work towards enhancing our community hall and town office.
