Cold Lake, AB – The City of Cold Lake has hired a firm to start conceptual plans to see if a suitable new building to house the Lakeland Humane Society (LHS) can be accommodated at its existing location.
“The Lakeland Humane Society provides a great service to our residents and is very well regarded throughout the region,” Mayor Craig Copeland said. “Our community is young and growing, and the society needs help to keep pace with the demand for the services it provides.”
The LHS operates independently of the City of Cold Lake, but provides the city’s pound-keeper services and pet licencing services under contract. The city is responsible for animal control and the enforcement of bylaws that govern the keeping of pets.
Cold Lake, AB – City Council is continuing to discuss physician recruitment for the community, as the number of people that are unattached continues to be a concern raised by the residents of Cold Lake.
“Our community and the surrounding area is under continual growth,” said Mayor Craig Copeland. “Council will work with the chief of staff at Cold Lake Hospital to increase the availability of family and specialized physicians to practice at the hospital. Scheduling meetings with senior Alberta Health Services officials in the near future is a high priority for council.”
While new doctors have arrived in the city over the years, doctors have also left, leaving a continual gap in the number of people without access to a family physician. Based on information provided by Alberta Health Services (AHS) and Hearts for Health Care, Cold Lake has 12 practicing physicians. For reference, in 2007, Cold Lake records show that 10 doctors were practicing.
