Town of Rimbey Fire Advisory Lifted
With the recent moisture, the Town of Rimbey has lifted the fire advisory effective today. Open burn permits will once again be issued.
Always remember to be fire smart and use extreme caution while using your fire pits, burn barrels. In a split second an “under control” fire can take a turn for the worse. Before and during your fire, be aware of the current weather conditions and re-evaluate if the weather changes. Always extinguish your fire if the change in weather increases the hazard of your fire. We thank you for being safe!

The Town will provide proper and responsible conservation of its most important resource by implementing the following water restrictions as authorized in Sections 2.10 and 2.11 of Bylaw 776/05.
The watering of lawns and gardens will be restricted on a continuing basis:
1.1 Occupants or owners of even numbered addresses will be permitted to water on calendar days of the months ending in even numbers;
1.2 Occupants or owners of odd numbered addresses will be permitted to water on calendar days of the months ending in odd numbers.
1.3 In the case of a water shortage caused by weather conditions, mechanical reasons or otherwise, the Town Manager has the authority to set limitations on rationing of water. If, in the opinion of the Town Manager and/or Town Foreman, during such water shortages, any user is abusing his water privileges, the Town Manager may authorize services to said premises to be temporarily suspended. The period of suspension shall be determined by the Town Manager, or in the absence of the Town Manager, the Town Foreman.
We thank you for your cooperation!
