Dear Residents of the Village of Edgerton,

June 19, 2020

Thanks for visiting our website! If you are a visitor to our community, we suggest you take the time to check out the local attractions and businesses in our little village while you are here.

As school is ending for the 2019–2020 school year and summer approaches we all anticipate the longer days, the warmer weather, and welcome a little more of “normal” back to our lives. Many parents are breathing a sigh of relief! Kudos to the students, the parents, the teachers, and administrators all working together as this online learning process was not for the “faint of heart.” At this point, it appears that the Alberta government is targeting a return to “near-normal” conditions with students returning to classrooms across the province for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. They have laid out three scenarios, with the FINAL decision to be made August 1st.

The Village had been patiently waiting for the announcement by Municipal Affairs of the Stimulus Package which was promised for “shovel ready projects.” Several weeks ago, we were informed by Municipal Affairs that they were working on the final details of the program, and an announcement would be coming within a week or two. The idea behind this Stimulus Package is to get Albertans back to work. Many municipalities across Alberta have had their “shovels ready” for a couple of months now, including the Village of Edgerton!

As we proceed with caution through Phase 2 throughout the summer, we are reminded that “we are not all in the same boat, but we are in the same storm, so it is important we support each other. Don’t judge; be kind!” Relax, have fun, enjoy spending time with your “cohorts” - just do it safely.

Many people have their RV’s hooked up and ready to roll into summer! Travel safely wherever you go! We wish you all a great summer!
