A Message from our Mayor
To All Citizens of the Village of Alix,
Happy New Year 2021! I hope everyone had a good Christmas season, albeit a little different this year, with everything that continues on in our world today with COVID-19, weak economy, and job losses for many.
In saying that, please know that your Village Council is acutely aware of the hard times many of us are facing and will continue to do our best to assist our citizens move forward through these unprecedented times.
We all know that the COVID-19 virus has and will continue to impact many people over the foreseeable future, and as such, we all need to be supportive of each other and assist where we are able. While we are still in the midst of this pandemic, we simply cannot ignore the other real challenges, we as a community has faced, and will continue to face. Statistics show an increase in crime, addictions, and job losses are just some of the things all communities across Alberta are facing. We are not alone in the fight to get back to better times before the pandemic started. I do feel we are moving forward, but there are obviously unknowns as we move into the fall/winter season.
That all said, I again ask everyone work together to help each other by doing things like joining a volunteer group, helping your neighbour, and most importantly, following the recommendations laid out by the Province of Alberta and Health Experts.
While I know it’s going to be difficult moving into the season of short days, cold temperatures, and being a bit more housebound, I’m confident we can all get through these trying times, if we continue to follow the guidelines that have been laid out, and look out for each other.
Please know that the Village of Alix Council and the Administrative team is continuing to monitor the situation closely and is prepared to take the required actions necessary to ensure we are as safe as possible now and into the foreseeable future. We are receiving regular updates from Alberta Health Services and Health Canada, and enacting protocols and procedures as per their requests.
Additionally, there are new services that are now available in the village to assist those in time of need, with more services coming. Please stay tuned as things develop.
Information is posted on the Village of Alix website, and the digital board on main street. If you are unable to access the website, please contact the Village Office at 403-747-2495. You can also access accurate and timely information from both the Government of Alberta, and the Alberta Health Services websites.
While I can appreciate there will be trying times for all of us, the safety of everybody in our Village is absolutely critical, particularly for young children, seniors, and those with respiratory issues.
On behalf of your Village Council, Administration, and many volunteers, thanks for working hard to make Alix a great place to play, work, and call home!!!!
