Within the Summer Village is 20 km / hr.
We value safety, and thus have installed speed bumps during the summer.
The road in Itaska (Beach Avenue) is to Alberta Government standards and will be governed accordingly, including the restriction of quads being used on the road.
If you wish to put your quad onto the lake, use a truck or trailer to get the quad to the boat launch, then you may use the boat launch to put the quad / off-road vehicle onto the lake.
At the Annual Information Meeting in 2008, concerns were brought forth regarding the safety and use of fireworks in Itaska Beach. There were incidents of fireworks being used during the day time, and persons being injured. From this, Council looked into the matter further, and found that property was also at risk, including boat covers being burned.
With lake quality always an utmost priority, it was found that the debris from fireworks was left to float to the bottom of the lake, or be left on land.
The last concern was with noise, and animals being disturbed with constant firework usage.
Considering public interest, Council has chosen to regulate firework usage through the passing of the Fireworks Bylaw #2009-02.
Firework usage in most cases will be limited to the long-weekends in May, July and August, from 10pm - 12 am (midnight).
1. A permit will be required for all firework usage. Please ensure you have the permit on you when using the fireworks.
2. If a fire ban is issued, all permits shall be cancelled
3. All debris created by or resulting from the use of fireworks shall be cleaned up
Permits will be given out by the Fire Chief from the Mulhurst Fire Department. Go to our Contact Page for current phone numbers.
If you have any questions regarding this or other bylaws, please contact the administration office.
There are weight limits and restrictions to protect the road at various times during the year, such as during the Spring. Please watch for the weight restriction sign posted at the entrance to Itaska.
The RCMP is used to enforce our bylaws. This includes regulating speed and parking, no dumping of debris, prohibition of use of firearms, noise, dogs, fire bans, and fireworks. The RCMP also enforce Provincial & Federal statutes.
If you see anyone committing a crime, speeding, etc. please be sure to immediately call the RCMP. For major emergencies, please dial 9-1-1. Visit our Contact page for more phone numbers.
