March Mayor's Message: Let's Talk About CUI

progress on cui snip

progress on cuiOver the last few weeks, I’ve received some emails and calls from residents wondering what is going on with Chestermere Utilities Inc (CUI).

Dismantling a multi-million dollar company, without cutting the services to our residents, takes time and we want to get it right.

If you’re interested in how we have been progressing, I invite you to take a look through the timeline to the right. In addition to these steps, we have also been thoroughly reviewing CUI’s operations, rate structure, assets, existing contracts, projects and accounting structure.  

At the moment, I am pleased to announce that Council has decided to move forward on issuing a Request for Proposal for outsourcing of waste collection and processing services for all three waste streams (garbage, organics and recycling).

As announced in January, we explored our other options and outsourcing of these services looks to be our best path forward to provide a stable service at a reasonable cost. We are still exploring our options for the other services CUI provides, and hope to make progress on those in the coming weeks.  

Thank you for your patience as we work to sort this out. Our focus right now is CUI and this Council is committed to trying to find the best path forward to deliver services to Chestermere in a long term, stable fashion.

If you have any questions, I encourage you to reach out and ask. Updates are posted to www.chestermere.ca/cui and we are very happy to talk with anyone who has concerns and would like to ensure you get all the facts.

Sincerely,

Mayor Chalmers

P.S. Council is in the middle of reviewing a draft of the Chestermere Lake Recreation Safety Plan. Thank you to all who have been engaging on this project over the past few months. It is our intention to introduce strategies to improve safety on the water this summer. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
