A number of addresses surrounding Mulhurst Bay are now formally part of the hamlet, after being informally treated as such in years past.

As the County of Wetaskiwin continues its review of hamlet boundaries and addressing, 102 properties were affected by new boundaries for Mulhurst Bay and are now included within the community.

“They were addressed as though they were in the hamlet and they were receiving services as though they were in the hamlet but the boundary was never amended,” said assistant CAO Rod Hawken.

There were ratepayer concern regarding sewer and taxes on the affected properties.

Hawken says there is currently no plan to expand the sewer system in Mulhurst Bay, and if such a thing in the future did occur those impacted would pay. Properties already connected with a monthly rate would not be affected.

Council was also questioned as to why another group of properties directly east of those now included in the amended boundaries were not affected. Hawken says it is because those properties do not have civic addressing or garbage collection.
