(June 2, 2021 – Drumheller, AB) As a result of community concerns regarding the Flood Mitigation Program, Mayor Colberg and Council have requested a full review from the Office of Municipal Affairs of the flood program with regards to contracts, finances, and the project as a whole.
“Our community has spoken and Council has heard their concerns.” Says Mayor Colberg “we must remember that the Drumheller Valley is a flood community and as such, the program will be continuing with landowner consultations and engineering work for the berms. They will also continue on outdoor construction clean-up from the tree trimming along East Coulee to Nacmine, including along the CN Rail areas.”
In the spirit of full transparency, Council commits to sharing the results of this review with the community and acting on their recommendations.
