The City of Armstrong is taking a petition for a new crosswalk under consideration.

A petition for a new cross walk was submitted to the City of Armstrong to help seniors safely cross the street to the pharmacy at 2805 Smith Dr.

Coun. Lance McGregor put forward a motion recommendation to share the funding with property owners.

“The public works manager has talked to some property owners,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. “They’re willing to join to fund the project, so we should have a motion to proceed.”

Flood funding request

Council voted unanimously to submit an application for funding through the community emergency preparedness fund for flood risk assessments, floodplain mapping and flood mitigation plans and the national disaster mitigation program.

Rutabaga rolls ahead

The 28th annual Rutabaga Bowling Tournament Sept. 27 is in business.

The Royal Canadian Legion branch requested a temporary change to their liquor licence to permit an extension of the licence area for the tournament, which council approved Monday.
