Grant Recipients

Westlock County acknowledges the outstanding contributions of our community members and organizations that help make our community such an amazing place.

These are the recipients of the 2017 Capital Grant awards.

Jarvie Community Council - Community Centre Accessibility and Drainage
The Jarvie Community Centre required sloping to correct drainage from the building as well as construction of a proper ramp, sidewalks and accessibility for all to enter the centre.  Cost savings with local contractors allowed for a set of accessible doors and additional ramps to be installed at the second entrance.   

Busby Community League - Community Hall Renovation
The Busby Community League has undertaken a project to ensure the continuation of their hall as it is the hub of the community by bringing the kitchen up to current commercial standards.  Over 5000 people use the facility each year including Busby Elemenary for the hot lunch program, the preschool, Gymkhana, Minor Ball and 4H.  Other upgrades including lighting, electrial and painting were also included in the hall project.
