Ratepayers can weigh in on county borrowing $4M for Nauticol, Clairmont expansion

The County of Grande Prairie may borrow $4 million to support developments of Nauticol Energy’s proposed methanol plant and industrial businesses in Clairmont.

Two borrowing bylaws were given first reading at county council’s regular meeting Monday, with two more needed before passage.

The first Borrowing Bylaw would allow the county to borrow $3 million to purchase approximately 274 acres (111 hectares) west of the International Paper Mill.


Hythe passengers getting more busing service

The County Connector schedule is being amended to allow the bus to come to Hythe two days per week, rather than just once.

County of Grande Prairie council directed administration during its regular meeting Monday to make the change, after Hythe council lobbied for more service.


Beaverlodge paying more for regional rec committee

Beaverlodge council voted to renew the town’s membership in the Grande Prairie Regional Recreation Committee during last week’s regular meeting, to promote its rec facilities.

The town will also increase its yearly contribution to the committee, from $1,055 to $1,572.
