Background

This special "recreational services" levy was initiated in 2010 at the request of the Pinnacle Ridge Neighbourhood Association to keep the water features in the neighbourhood. The Neighbourhood Association received approximately 700 signatures in support of a special levy to maintain the feature.

As this is a special levy, it must be approved by Council every year as per the Alberta Municipal Government Act.
