In the dead of winter, home maintenance isn’t really what you want to be thinking about. Much better to be cozied up with a good show and a glass of wine, right?

But home maintenance is also one of those things that you definitely don’t want to procrastinate. It’s so easy to keep saying “I’ll get to it next weekend.” But procrastinating can lead to emergencies, which tend to cost lots of cash to fix.

To avoid those expensive emergencies, make sure you’re doing your home maintenance on a regular basis. Here’s a few things to keep on your list:

  • Clean and check the gutters before winter
  • Check pipes and walls/ceilings for any leaks semiannually
  • Check smoke and carbon monoxide monitors semiannually
  • Clean your HVAC system and vents annually
  • Clean drying vents annually
  • Check electrical annually
  • Take care of low hanging branches or suspect trees as soon as you notice them

I recommend creating a schedule for home maintenance and putting it in your calendar or planner. Some people like to spend a day taking care of everything while others want to spread it out so they have to do just one task per week. Either way, keep up on your home maintenance so you can relax and enjoy your home.


Tentative decision day for Lloydminster Place looms

By Gerry LampowWednesday, Feb. 15th, 2023

“Lloydminster city council has gotten a full update on the proposed arena and events centre with a cost of some $102 million and discussion on Lloydminster Place will come back to council on Feb. 27.

At Monday’s Governance and Priorities Committee session, Mayor Gerald Aalbers noted that they are awaiting a determination on grant funds from both the federal as well as provincial governments with the Alberta budget expected to come down on Feb. 28, and the matter being slated for council on the day before.

From a budget of $2.16 million, the city has spent $1,812,057 as of Dec. 31, 2022. Those costs include architecture as well as geotechnical and materials testing. Another $100,000 has been approved to be spent this year on geotechnicals and materials. The budget has $247,943 left.

Given the economic picture, the range of options before council include whether to continue, stop the build or look at a scaled back version. Aalbers is asking the question about the reason people came to Lloydminster and he ties that into amenities like recreation, stores, raising a family, jobs and the quality of life.

“What would it take to draw a world class business to Lloydminster? And there are multiple pieces to that. We need available land, we need a workforce, but that workforce that may come with a major industry as an example, will want to look at the community and say,”Why would I want to move there?” Oh they’ve got top notch quality recreation facilities – cultural facilities.”

Aalbers says he hears these suggestions regularly from professionals in the area as the backdrop to attracting more talent in various disciplines. But also for people who work in other areas, he says the question on his mind is, “why would you move to Lloydminster and what we need to have as a community to draw those people and grow the city?” He feels that without growing, the city will go backwards.

Council documents detailed the scale of the project and councillors discussed the state of the ageing Centennial Civic Centre and the need to provide a replacement. As well they did not want to burden the taxpayers with repayment of loans over three decades at an interest rate of nearly five per cent.

The opportunity cost of whether to build now or delay, given that prices continue to inflate is a matter that is keeping the seven members of council awake at night, says Aalbers.

“I believe that if we are not building for the future, we are going to miss some things. Someone at one time or another took a risk of building Lloydminster where it is today and watched the city grow and it continues to grow. And we are optimistic that it is going to grow. And with that growth we need opportunities for people to do various things and recreation has become one of those things.”

Aalbers adds Lloydminster is the designated stop between Saskatoon and Edmonton and the city views itself as a regional centre. He concludes that Lloydminster Place, as proposed, is a place to gather.

Several options are still on the table ranging from building the events centre as proposed or scaling it back to either an events centre only, twin-arenas, or build the community arena as a shell and use the Archie Miller arena with upgrades.

Aalbers recognizes the challenges of the build even as he stays optimistic and looks to the future.”

“It was a week of big important numbers. The most important one: 0.25%. That’s how much Fed Chair Jerome Powell raised interest rates — the smallest jump since we can remember. But what drove a 2021-style melt-up in stocks was what Powell signaled afterward: that we may be nearing the end of interest-rate hikes. The second important number was 517,000 — the U.S.’s very strong January jobs growth. But in our bizarro world where good employment news is bad for markets (because it could spell more rate hikes) that was a drag on stocks. Who won the week? The ralliers.

40% is the number this week. The drop in the number of home sales in Calgary in 2022. New listings in the city are at the lowest level in about 25 years.” WS.

Community asked for input on future development of Bud Miller All Seasons Park.  

Lloydminster, AB/SK – The City of Lloydminster is launching its first phase of engagement for the Bud Miller All Seasons Park Master Plan. Starting January 30, 2023, residents will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas on the future development of the community’s largest green space.

Bud Miller All Seasons Park is a beloved community asset that serves as a gathering place for residents of all ages. The master plan will guide the park’s development over the next 10 years, with the goal of creating a sustainable, accessible and inclusive space for the community to enjoy.

The City of Lloydminster is committed to engaging with the community throughout the master plan process and encourages all residents to participate in the digital engagement campaign. The feedback and ideas collected during the campaign will be used to inform the final master plan, which will be presented to City Council for approval.
The first engagement campaign runs Monday, January 30, to Tuesday, February 21, 2023, and includes a brief digital survey with an opportunity for respondents to provide comments or ask additional questions. The campaign will also include a virtual Question & Answer board, where residents can publicly ask more about the master plan and ask questions of the project team.
