Due to the recent passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, the City of Wetaskiwin Open House has been postponed until further notice due to the 10-day period of mourning.

If you’ve ever wondered why Wetaskiwin’s planning, public works, bylaw, or other departments do things the way they do, now’s the time to ask! A City of Wetaskiwin Open House is in the works!

A new date for the event will be announced shortly.

The in-person open house — the first in two years due to the pandemic — is a way to connect residents with people they wouldn’t normally speak with, and give them a chance to ask questions about various municipal departments, explains Kristen Hewlett, Interim Communications Manager with the City of Wetaskiwin.

“If you have a question, these are the people to ask,” she says. “This is a chance for Wetaskiwinites to come and put names to faces and learn about the work we do to keep the city moving forward. This is a great opportunity for the community to learn about the City’s various services, programs, and initiatives.”

While details are still being finalized, departments expected to be represented at the open house include:

  • Public Works
  • Planning and Development
  • Recreation
  • Enforcement Services
  • Fire Services

Event sponsors Graham Construction and Aquatera will also be on hand as municipal contractors responsible for building and operating Wetaskiwin’s new wastewater treatment facility.

Bring the family!

In addition to the chance to ask questions, residents are invited to take in a free lunch-time barbecue, check out the activities for children, and enter to win a variety of prizes.

“It’s meant to be really family-friendly and we will have some things on hand for kids, too,” says Hewlett.
