The county will continue with its measured and phased approach to its relaunch efforts through the month of June.
In addition to the recent opening of some county parks, as well as municipal campgrounds and playgrounds, the county will be reopening its municipal buildings to the public in a phased approach starting June 8.
“The safety of our citizens and staff is our primary concern and has guided our relaunch efforts” says Duane Coleman, Leduc County Manager. “Despite closing our doors to in-person, drop-in visits in mid-March, we have continued to deliver high-quality municipal services. We look forward to once again serving our residents in-person, with new safety measures in place, when our buildings reopen.”
Effective next Monday, the county Finance department at Leduc County Centre (1101 5 St.) will open to the public for drop-in service on weekdays during regular office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). You’ll be able to pay your taxes and bills, purchase bus passes and obtain transfer station access cards.
Additional county departments and buildings will open throughout June; a full schedule can be found at leduc-county.com/covid-19. Staff remain available to assist citizens during office hours by calling 780-955-3555.
Additional relaunch plans include the following:
- Nisku and Thorsby public works shops to be open to the public by appointment only moving forward; agricultural producers can call 780-789-3777 to schedule an appointment to drop-off chemical containers at the Thorsby Public Works Shop
- council and committee meetings to continue being held via teleconference until physical distancing requirements are lifted
- programs, workshops and events to be hosted online where possible; these will resume in-person when safe to do so
All visitors are asked to follow the directions posted throughout Leduc County buildings, and to follow public health orders including practicing physical distancing, staying home when sick and limiting group gatherings.
