Alberta's Relaunch Strategy
We are currently in Stage 2 of Alberta's Relaunch Strategy as of June 12, 2020. The plan to move forward in Alberta's Relaunch Strategy requires careful monitoring and respecting of all guidelines outlined by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Each stage of relaunch will depend on our ability to keep infection numbers low.

Important Information on Town Staff Availability
Due to the rapidly escalating situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, the following measures have been implemented by the Town of Coaldale office. These measures will be in place starting the week of March 16th, 2020. The Town recognizes the need to continue to provide service to the community while complying in both word and intent with the most up to date recommendations from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer.
- All members of the public who need to conduct business with the Town are strongly encouraged to do so by phone, email, or through the website. If you need to come to the office, recognize that service levels may be reduced and the person you need to deal with may not be immediately available.
- All bill payments, where possible, should be done online.
- Our priority is public safety and the continued operation of critical infrastructure including water and wastewater systems, the fire department, etc. As such, the Town may determine that it be necessary for even more decisive action in order to ensure the continued operation of our core services.
Town staff are actively monitoring the situation and coordinating between departments to prepare longer term plans to accommodate recent operational changes required during this escalating situation. We recognize that this is a dynamic situation that is changing rapidly, and as such it is possible that these arrangements could change on short notice. We thank members of the public for their understanding as we do our best to balance our need and desire to serve our public with our obligation to be good corporate citizens and to act responsibly in complying with provincial public health recommendations.
For more information on these changes or for questions concerning the continuing evolution of the Town’s service level during this outbreak, please contact Cameron Mills, Manager of Economic Development, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
