Donnelly Council – Notebook

CAO Rita Maure
Village of Donnelly

Summary of March 19th, Regular Meeting for the Village of Donnelly and March 28th, 2018 Special Meeting held to complete items tabled at the March 19th meeting.

ATCO Electric was in to present to council benefits of LED street lights. Currently the Village has non-invested street lights, and ATCO Electric is requesting that we convert to invested rates. This issue is being considered by council, however the monthly cost for invested rates is substantially higher than non-invested. With invested rates, all maintenance is taken care of by ATCO Electric and with non-invested rates the village must maintain the infrastructure. Atco Electric presented the Solar Street Light pilot project.

The Tender for the 2018 Street Improvement project was awarded to Knelsen Sand & Gravel for the sum of $696,744. This project will see new curbs around Block 4 and 12, the south side of Blocks 5 and 11.

Resurfacing (new layer of asphalt) to be installed on Gravel Avenue from 3rd Street all the way to 6th; most of 4th Street, and 6th Street; along with sections of Centennial Avenue and some of Cote Avenue.

Council approved the repair work needed on the street light poles flagged by ATCO Electric as requiring replacement. Work scheduled to be done in spring by ATCO Electric. You will see a new LED light on these two lights. Council has also approved the ATCO Electric pilot project to install a solar street light tentatively approved for the corner of Doyle Avenue and 1st Street.
