The Town of Alameda has had a busy and eventful summer.
"We've been doing great," shared Perry Kinder, mayor of Alameda. "We've had, I would say, a very successful summer and fall here."
He added that they accomplished a few projects this summer.
"I guess the biggest project we had on the go was our rink. We took out all the cement, boards, and the bleachers and completely rebuilt it. The great part was that it was mainly put together with our rec board who got thousands of hours of town and community volunteers that helped put it all together and saved quite a bit of money. So that was a real positive for the community and now it's back up and running."
New lights were also added to the ball diamond for evening games next summer.
"We did some repair paving on a few of the streets as well as paved our main street which is a nice change for the community."
But it wasn't all work for the residents.
"We had our Alameda Fair and it was very successful. We had our Fireman's Rodeo right in Alameda as well which was another success. And our favourite, as always, the Fish Derby was another success. Our campground was quite busy through the summer as well."
There is already plans in the works for projects next year.
"The RM of Moose Creek is going to be building a new shop just west of town."
The old shop is located inside Alameda which will free that space up for town equipment.
"We're also looking at paving a couple more streets."
As for snow removal, Kinder shared that they will stick to the plan they've used for years - "Remove it when it snows. We work with the RM in getting it removed when necessary and that helps our town as well."
The town is also considering developing land west of town for possible future housing developments.
"That would be a long term project but it does provide us access to develop down the road."
