All Council Meetings are at Village Office at 7 PM. Unless otherwise posted.

COUNCIL MINUTES – Approved Council Minutes are posted on the Village Website. Signed copies of the Minutes are available at the Village Office for viewing.

MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION – The Village of Carbon currently has a vacancy for 1 Member at Large to be on this committee. The MPC is responsible for making decisions beyond the Development Officers purview. This committee meets when items in the Land Use Bylaw are a discretionary use as this is mandated by the MGA (Municipal Government Act). We meet minimum once per month or when new applications arise, whichever comes first. The public has a significant role in these discussions and hence we are asking for 1 additional member to join this group. Contact Vanessa Van der Meer (CAO) at Village Office if interested or for info.

DISPOSAL WIPES – Please DO NOT flush any wipes of any kind. Wet wipes, baby wipes and personal wipes are all the same thing and are NOT flushable. These wipes create a blockage that can only be removed manually. While the pumps are down, Vac Trucks are hired to transfer the sewer. This is very costly and time consuming.

UPDATE YOUR INFO – Many residents are cancelling their land lines and using cell phones exclusively. Contact the Village Office to update info.
