The M.D. of Smoky River’s summer mowing program ended on November 1 and crews were able to complete full cuts and shoulders, as well as flood control/environment ditches.
Normand Boulet, the ag fieldman for the M.D., highlighted this as part of his report to council during their meeting on November 14.
The mowing truck was stolen sometime between November 2-3, but it as quickly recovered.
Boulet also noted that clubroot and blackleg surveys were sent to Alberta Agriculture. No clubroot has been found, but blackleg is evident in all samples.
Boulet provided an update for seedling sales, noting that 14 customers had placed orders as of November 7.
Half of the blue spruce and high bush cranberry trees have been sold and he encourages buyers to place their orders by the end of December.
