On Monday March 6 Council awarded the contract for the Aquaplex modernization to Pearl Rose Construction Ltd from Red Deer.

The work to be undertaken includes the modification of the existing pool liner, installation of a new liner system and hot tub as well as upgrades to mechanical electrical and architectural components within the Aquaplex.

“This bid was just over $217,000 below the previous tender and the contractor has a great deal of experience with  similar projects,  explained Darryl Drohomerski Director of Infrastructure, “ The next steps will be to meet with the contractor and staff to finalize the construction schedule and plan for the switch over to the outdoor pool in May. A priority will be to ensure the best possible service to users of the Aquaplex throughout the summer.”

“Unfortunately disruption to users is unavoidable but the new pool will be a great facility for the people of Drumheller”, added Paul Salvatore Director of Community Services. “We will be communicating as soon as possible about changes to schedules and will continue providing updates to do throughout the summer to keep people informed”.

  • Waste receptacles 2017

 

GFL is the new collector of commercial bin garbage for the town for the next four years. They commenced work on Monday February 6.

Here is some information on the collection contract:

  • Any business with a large bin (holds more than 5 bags of garbage) is required to use the town’s collector and set up  service  with GFL as per the Solid Waste Management By-Law 06-16 unless the business is disposing of renovation or demolition waste.
  • The Town released a contract for exclusive commercial franchise services and GFL was the successful bidder with the lowest overall prices to the commercial customers in Drumheller for the next four years.
  • Businesses do not have a choice of their collector. They must switch to GFL as stated per By Law 06.16.
  • Huxted was the exclusive franchise provider of this service for many years. That is the reason that their bins were located throughout our community.  Huxted is no longer as service provider on contract to the Town of Drumheller.
  • If you have any questions please contact GFL at (403) 265-0044 or drumheller@gflenv.com, or the Town at (403) 823-1330.
