The village has a major problem with foxes. PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE FOXES as this only adds to the problem.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FOXES CARRY FLEAS, TICKS AND RABIES AND CAN BE A DANGER TO SMALL CHILDREN. They may be cute, bit they are wild animals NOT PETS.

In the last month or so we have had multiple break-ins in the Resort Village yet according to Sgt Ronald Robinson of the Turtelford RCMP only one has been reported in the past 90 days.
If you have had a break-in please report it to the police as soon as possible. Reporting any incidents that occur will justify a need for more police presence. Also, the more information they have the better chance they have of solving the cases.
Just a reminder that the main thing the thieves are looking for is alcohol.
The Resort Village council and KMB Fire Fire Department would like to the the Turtle Grove Restaurant for generously donating all of their returnable bottles and cans to the Fire Department.
In the last 2 years the total payout from returns is $3,917.85.
Please be advised that all garbage left out for pick-up must be placed in an animal proof container. There are a large number of skunks in the village right now and any garbage bags left out are being torn apart and the garbage spread all over.
The village has purchased some heavy duty garbage cans for resale to residents at a cost of $61.60. Please contact the office if you interested in purchasing any.

Cottage break and enters, property damage and thefts are serious concerns impacting police, property owners, cottager’s associations and insurance companies. Being an owner of a residence or cottage, you sometimes prefer an element of privacy. This element of privacy can be a wonderful feature; however, it may make your residence or cottage more vulnerable to crime. The RCMP have provided some helpful tips to help prevent you from being a victim of property crime.
The “Picnic in the Park” Fire Department has been deemed an outstanding success… $43,866.00 has been raised through the event, and $5000.00 in donations are still to come in… Wow! $48,866.00 will be our final total for the Volunteer Fire Department fire truck replacement.
The fire department’s goal is to have $50,000.00 to replace the fire truck. If anyone would like to make a donation to push the fund raiser over the top, stop by the village office and speak with Jackie.
Feel proud… Helping hands can achieve milestones. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to all of our “Friends of the Picnic in the Park.”
*Please note – The Village is now the proud owner of a shiny (much newer) red Fire truck. The cost of the fire truck was about $20,000 less than expected. The remainder of the funds raised has been used to insulate and heat the new shop which will be used as the new Fire Hall.
To all the unsung heroes in the village… the RVKMB thanks you for being mindful of the needs in the community and taking the volunteer initiative to get the little jobs done. Give yourselves a big pat on the back. If anyone has spare minutes, check in at the office or see the council if you care to lend a hand. The village looks super because of all the helping hands!!!
RVKMB has purchased a defibrillator unit that is available in emergency situations with trained personal… If you require information or have questions, please contact Jackie during business hours or get in touch with council.
Let’s talk about generosity… First Class Construction, Carl & Shauna Graetz & family, Drayton Valley, have donated four tires for the village grader. When you see the grader with its new “boots” installed, be thankful of the Graetz family for thinking of their village neighbours!!! Three cheers for your helping hands.
Thank you to the Norbury family for the donation of the Tetherball for the park!!!
