Utility Rates for 2023

Albertans have recently witnessed dramatic increases in natural gas and electricity prices as well as an increase in everyday items such as grocery shopping.  Chauvin Council upon reviewing the utility rates for 2023, determined that to continue to provide the high level of service, the monthly cost for water, sewer, gas, garbage and recycle would need to be adjusted. 

While council understands that funds are tight in everyone’s household, it is still important that the level of service provided to residents remain a priority. 

Beginning January 1, 2023, the new rates will be as follows:

Water $28.00 --- Sewer $26.00 --- Garbage $31.00 ---

Recycle $6.50 --- Gas $27.00

Chauvin Fire & Rescue Cash Raffle

We have started a raffle to assist in generating funds for a joint community project of a DIGITAL SIGN. Please contact one of your local firemen for tickets and looking forward to pulling the winning ticket on December 22nd at the Chauvin Agricultural Society Parade of Lights!

Christmas Greetings from Council

It was a busy year for projects this year in Chauvin.  Here are just some of the projects completed this year.  Stay tuned for more!

 

  • We purchased a new Zero Turn Mower and started helping at the Catholic Cemetery with mowing and lawn maintenance.

  • Bi-Systems replaced an older water pump in our Treatment Plant, which helped us continue to keep good drinkable water within Chauvin for years to come!

  • We replaced a lot of Water Valves, many of them along Main Street.

  • Regular sewer line root cleaning was done, and lines were inspected with cameras to see if any need repairs.

  • We are trying out heat tape for some storm sewer lines to prevent areas from experiencing frequent freeze-ups in the spring.

  • The Fire Hall purchased a new generator with the capacity to become a “Command Center” in case of any major emergencies!

  • Olson Construction took on a huge sidewalk project. Which included fixing areas along Main Street.They also did some patching and improving other areas around Chauvin.

  • 2nd Avenue and King Street saw a major improvement when we commissioned the M.D. of Wainwright to come in and oil the street.Thank you, M.D. of Wainwright crews, for the great job you did!

  • To help with drainage for properties along Queen Street, Highway crews have been replacing culverts and correcting the slope of the ditch. Along with this project, Benoit Oilfield Construction has been widening the King's Park Pond to accommodate the extra water shed.

  • Thank You to Spectre Systems for providing a temporary fix to our Community Center Parking Lot that will get us through until spring when the parking lot will get a major over-haul that we are all excited about!

 

The Council and Staff would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
