 For Garbage Collection see Village Services 

​Recycling:

Village council would like to thank those individuals who have taken care in disposing of their recyclable materials in the proper manner.
Cardboard: Business cardboard will continue to be picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your cardboard boxes are broken down, flattened and separated from garbage and in an enclosed box to keep dry. Please flatten all cardboard that is put into the trailer, and no cardboard to be put in the garbage truck.

Mulching:

Mulching is becoming increasingly popular, do to its convenience and health benefits it provides to the lawn. A mulch blade mower chops the clippings down to a fine mulch which is returned to the lawn. as the tiny grass clippings decompose rapidly, the lawn has a cleaner appearance. Nitrogen and other essential nutrients are fed back into the grass roots, resulting in a thicker and greener lawn without fertilizing or feeding.
For best results when mulching, the rule of thumb is not to cut off more than one-third of the grass length. For optimum results, do not cut below 30-40 mm and cutting frequently is recommended. mulching is also beneficial  to help maintain soil balance and moisture, thus less water is required for healthy grass.
The Village of Foremost requests the public to consider mulching their grass rather than bagging for transfer to the refuse site. This would save on garbage volumes in both hauling and land fill space and also promote a healthy and happy yard.

Composting:

The Village of Foremost has set aside an area for the composting of leaves and grass. It is located at the Industrial Park, north of the County shop, adjacent to the large dirt piles.
Please follow this system when utilizing the composting area:
Only leaves and grass clippings
Plastic bags are to be dumped and if discarded, put in barrel next to composting area
No garbage, household or otherwise
No shrub, trees trimmings or branches
No metal
Biodegradable bags are permissible.
Your cooperation in maintaining this composting site is appreciated.

1. License for each altered dog       $10.00
2. License for each unaltered dog  $ 15.00
Dog Control;
The Village of Foremost would like to thank those dog owners who continue to keep their dogs from running at large within the Village of Foremost.
However we still continue too receive complaints regarding dogs that are running loose within the Village or causing a disturbance by excessive barking.
Dogs running at large are a nuisance to other residents. They tear up garbage, damage and destroy property, and at times frighten children and adults.
Please continue to keep our Village clean and a pleasant place to live by making sure your dog is kept within the confines of your yard, unless it is otherwise restrained by a permitted leash held by a person and that leash is attached to a choke chain, collar or harness securely holding the dog.
The Village of Foremost would appreciate your assistance in adhering to By-Law No. 473, a copy of which may be viewed at the Village Office during regular business hours.

Irrigation System:

Due to the early freeze in October 2016, prior to the Irrigation system blow-out, please check all valves and standpipes for cracks and or breaks.
If you have any cracks or breaks in your private lines, please repair prior to irrigation start-up in the Spring of 2017.. Estimated date for Irrigation start up will be approximately April 17, 2017, weather permitting.

VILLAGE Municipal Development Plan

 

The Village of Foremost is developing a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will guide future growth and development for the next 30 years.

Prior to April 1, 2018, the Municipal Government Act (MGA) only mandated the creation of MDPs for municipalities with a population of 3,500 or greater. With the Modified Municipal Government Act, the requirement is now that all municipalities within Alberta must prepare and adopt a MDP by bylaw.
