Ag Services during COVID-19

During these extraordinary times, Kneehill County is working to continue to provide many of our existing services and programs to our ratepayers. Our focus remains on the health and safety of the community, as well as that of our staff. While we work towards achieving this, and complying with the Alberta Provincial Health orders, some of our services and programs have needed to be modified and seasonal staffing reduced.

This may mean for instance, services such as mowing frequency for some of our 50+ locations, or spraying may be reduced or delayed from previous years as we work within the Provincial guidelines.

We are continually monitoring and evaluating any changes to public health orders for implications to our programming, and to continue ensuring the safety of the community and our staff. 

Thank you for you patience, and understanding.
