Westlock County Hamlet Mowing and Community Cleanup Grant

Westlock County Council supports community activities to beautify and maintain aesthetic communities within the County.  Council also recognizes that non-profit organizations are often involved in these beautification activities, and face challenges in obtaining funds for community activities. 

In recognition of the economic challenges faced by the non-profit community organizations, and toward the objective of improving community aesthetics, Council will provide grant funding to non-profit community organizations in County Hamlets for community clean-ups, and for mowing of grass on Community Hall properties, parks, and playgrounds.
