The Director of Community Services announced that final details for their Meal Assistance Program will be coming shortly and would like to thank Ovintiv and Millar Western for their generous donations to the program. The Meal Assistance Program will help those in need by bringing in frozen single-serve meals that can be saved for when you’re ready to eat them.
Construction on the dugout of the Main Diamond has begun. Along with foundation work and Kodiak has also poured concrete pads. Trenching has also begun to help reroute water away from the diamond and towards a culvert. The community can look forward to seeing the new dugout this Canada Day, as long as the nice weather holds up.
The Director of Recreation reported to Council that the Splash Park, which was previously announced to be closed until further notice due to COVID-19, will be opening again towards the end of June or the beginning of July.
Interior signage in the Fox Creek Greenview Multiplex has been installed, including the new donor wall outlining those who have contributed to the building of the facility. Administration is excited for the public to see the new signage and upgrades upon re-opening. The pillar sign is scheduled to begin its install mid-June.
Administration has worked with the Province to develop an agreement that allows the Province to transfer title of North Road lands prior to being surveyed and registered. There is a caveat that the Town will complete the registration as soon as possible. It is expected that this will allow the Town of Fox Creek to have title soon.
March 2020 brought the closure of both the Town Administration Office, Community Hall, and the Fox Creek Greenview Multiplex, all due to COVID-19. Now, with the Province’s launch of Stage 2 of the Relaunch Strategy on June 12, 2020, the Town of Fox Creek is now able to re-open to the public. With Council’s approval, the Administration Office and Community Hall will be open to the public again beginning June 16, 2020. However, to ensure the safety of staff and the community, as well as ensuring the compliance of Alberta Health guidelines, the Fox Creek Greenview Multiplex will not open until June 26, 2020. Once the Multiplex is open, people can expect there to be a few changes to policy and procedure.
Council has also motioned for Administration to raise the minimum age to be unsupervised in the Fox Creek Greenview Multiplex from its previous 7 years of age to 10 years of age. Children as young as 8 years may be unsupervised while using the Chevron Aquatic Centre, however a guardian must be present in the facility.
Administration brought to Council their proposed new design for the Town logo. After a brief discussion regarding the differences between the previous logo and the new proposed one, Council approved the change. The most notable difference being the removal of the fox from the side. The new logo will be gradually phased in as required but going forward all advertising will show this new logo.
