Priddis Greens Services Co-op
ABOUT US 

The Services Co-op was taken over from the original developer (Priddis Creek Developments) in 1991 and has been governed since that time by a Board of Directors comprised of six residents elected at the Annual General Meeting in April of each year, plus the General Manager of the Priddis Greens Golf & Country Club.  

The purpose of the Services Co-op is to provide the following services to the community:
 - Potable water supply and sewage treatment
 - Garbage pick-up
 - Snow removal
 - Grass maintenance
 - Summer irrigation (non-potable water)

The above services are provided to four basic user groups:
 - The condo residents (26 condo corporations) - all of the above services
-  The 12 single lot owners - potable water and garbage pick-up
 - The Priddis Greens Golf Club - receives potable water and sewage treatment
 - Hawk's Landing Services Co-op - receives potable water.  In addition, effective Dec 1, 2010, the Priddis Greens Services Co-op entered into a contract with Hawk's Landing Services Co-op to operate their potable water distribution system and their waste water treatment plant.  This service is being provided by our Services Co-op for a monthly fee

RE: PUBLIC NOTICE MESSAGE

Lots of calls and emails, asking what to do with the Public Notice message sent earlier today.

In 2015 the government changed the legislation with the adoption of the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act. The amendments changed the inspection requirements for all wastewater and water treatment plants in the province. Licences have an expiry date requiring an inspection to reissue licences for anther period of time. When the Act became effective (in 2015) the change in inspection requirements for all licences for all facilities became due at the same time. With the limited number of inspectors and the huge number of plants in the province, this created a huge backlog and the government has had to provide 'extensions' to licences until an inspection under the new guidelines could be completed. Inspections are being done with larger systems first and working towards smaller operations like ours. At this point we don't know but anticipate that further extensions will be required, in which case there may be more Public Notices required.

Because an extension for our facility has been granted, the Act requires us to advise everyone in the area that might be affected to have input into the regulatory decisions as allowed by the Act (section 73). A copy of the notice and a list of all the people that have been advised has to be submitted to Environment and Parks as proof the notice was sent. The notice simply provides information on how to submit a written statement of concern.

Other than reading the notice, unless you have a concern you need not do anything more.

RE: GARBAGE PICK-UP

To reduce the chance of attracting wildlife garbage should be set out for the shortest time possible before pickup. This means do not set out garbage until the MORNING of the day of pick-up. The current contract schedule is for garbage to be picked up between 7:30 and 10:30 AM each Wednesday. If this is not possible, please make arrangements with a neighbour to assist you. 

With the current drought like conditions, the food supply for ALL wildlife (not just bears) is diminishing thereby forcing them to look for other food sources. Bears in particular need to 'bulk up' to prepare for their annual hibernation and will be especially attracted to the easy access garbage provides. If we have another bear incident Alberta Fish and Wildlife will have to become involved and they remind us that, "A FED BEAR USUALLY BECOMES A DEAD BEAR."

Household waste must be in tied plastic bags and placed in garbage cans with tight fitting lids. Garbage bags left beside or on top of garbage cans will not be taken by the contractor (GFL). If you are not using the Range Recycling service, GFL will take flattened cardboard tied or taped in bundles. Cardboard should be placed beside or under garbage cans to avoid blowing away.
Also for aesthetic reasons, empty containers should be removed from the street as soon as possible after they have been emptied, again please ask a neighbour for assistance if necessary.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.  
RE: IRRIGATION SYSTEM MODIFICATIONS

Some residents are finding that turning the valves on our manual lawn irrigation system has become too much of a hassle. As a result a few condo corps have changed or are in the process of changing their current manual valve system to an automatic timer controlled system. 

For those who have made or are contemplating making the change, they should be aware that:
 > The CO-OP is responsible for the main irrigation line up to and including each condo corp/lot owner's main turn on/off valve .
 > The CO-OP is also responsible for the main irrigation line leading from each condo corp/lot owner's main turn on/off valve back to the Golf Club's pressure regulating valves for the home irrigation system.
 > The Condominium Corp/Lot Owner is responsible for the replacement/maintenance/repair of each condo corp/lot owner's irrigation network of control valves, irrigation system lines, sprinkler heads and Quick Connectors.
 > When requested, and if the work is within the capabilities of CO-OP employees the CO-OP will do the repairs and maintenance, at an hourly rate charged to the resident or condo corporation to the current valve and irrigation systems only.
 > Repairs and maintenance to any part of newly installed automated systems cannot be done by the CO-OP due to product warranties and not having a supply of parts other than those needed for the current manual valve system.

Thank you for your understanding.

Our Household Garbage pickup day is now MONDAY.

Please place your garbage out by 7:30 AM for pickup on MONDAY each week.

The Range Recycling pickup day remains as WEDNESDAY. We are working with them on possible options, however this may take more time as their whole schedule was built around Wednesday being the pickup day for Priddis Greens. To change their schedule to Monday will mean changing the day for all other customers.
