Temporary Road Closure, Fire Ban, And Census

Leduc's 50th Street prepares to close while new rail crossing is installed.

Working On The Railroad

Leduc residents found things a little difficult in getting around on 50 street by the Leduc Composite High School on Tuesday, May 26th and Wednesday, May 17th, 2015.

Beginning at 9am on Tuesday, all four lanes were affected as work started on major repairs to the tracks that cross the street. Motorists were asked to use alternate routes with signage indicating the need to detour to other routes.

In 2013 Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR) made some temporary repairs to the crossing and the time had come to make those repairs permanent. The city worked to minimize traffic impacts in this area for emergency service access and local traffic. The city appreciated the co-operation and patience of everyone that uses the roadway.

As of Monday morning, the City of Leduc has put a complete fire ban into effect. Open air burning has been suspended until moisture conditions improve. Those individuals using solid fuel barbecues are asked to do so responsibly and fire-pits must meet the Fire Services By-Laws regarding fire-pits. Citizens should be aware that they could be liable for firefighting costs for any fire resulting in a fire-pit that is non-compliant.

For those that did not complete their city census on line, the city has a team of census takers going door-to-door. They started on Monday, May 25th and will continue visiting households until Monday, June 15th.

The city has taken an annual municipal census since 2008 which ensures that Leduc receives provincial funding that reflects the city’s fast growing population. Leduc relies on provincial funding to help offset the costs of many important services, which includes services such as infrastructure improvements and maintenance, recreation and culture programs, Family and Community Support Services, RCMP and Leduc Fire Services.

Your assistance and patience will be appreciated. The census is very brief and only takes a few minutes to complete. The census provides the basis for calculating per capita provincial grants received by The City of Leduc. These grants represent a substantial amount of money and improve the quality of life for all residents. The answers to the questions on the census also provide the information the city needs to plan for future services.
