Some of the most asked questions we're receiving from you.
Q: Does the County plan on opening its campgrounds this summer?
A: As eager as everyone is for camping season to begin, we simply do not have an answer to that question at this time. As the COVID-19 crisis evolves, a determination will be made in that regard, but we don’t anticipate having any updates for several weeks. Reservations are not set to open until May 1, so please be patient!
Q: Are landfills and transfer stations still open?
A: The County's Landfill and Transfer Stations remain accessible within regular business hours. Please visit LSAC.ca/Waste to check locations and hours of operation.
Q: What will happen with road repairs or water stations during COVID-19?
A: All essential County services such as road maintenance, water refill stations, and transfer station access will continue be provided.
Q: How do I contact the County office?
A: Our new phone -to-email system will keep business flowing while minimizing face-to-face interactions. When you call 780.785.3411 or toll-free 1.866.880.5722, an answering service will write down your name, number and a summary of your message. These details will be sent via email to the appropriate department for review and response on a priority basis.
Q: I already called and left a message. Why haven’t I gotten a call back?
A: If you notice an inordinate delay in response, please call back and leave a new message. Staff levels may fluctuate, and response times may vary depending on employee workload and health status.
