Respect Your Neighbour
Itaska is a very friendly community. We have put bylaws in place to help ensure ratepayers’ needs are protected, but the best solution is to treat your neighbour as you would like to be treated. Please respect your neighbours space relative to late night guest activities, bonfire smoke, noise etc.
Copies of the bylaws and policies can be found under Bylaws.
Within the Summer Village is 20 km / hr.
Some bylaws to note:
Firework usage in most cases will be limited to the long-weekends in May, July and August.

Fire Response and Bans
Fire response is provided by volunteers with the Mulhurst Bay Fire Department. The station house is 11.2 km away. There are no fire hydrants within the Summer Village.
Fire bans will be posted on the main page under News. They will also be posted on albertafirebans.ca.
Please note that the fire hazard across Alberta changes daily. Albertans are asked to take extra care with any type of fire this summer to ensure they don’t accidentally cause a wildfire. Alberta typically experiences about 1,600 wildfire starts a year - about half of those are caused by human carelessness.
Be aware of the costs of fire emergency services. While the Summer Village has contracted for the service to be available to your residence, it does not cover the call out fees. Contact your insurance broker to determine if call out fees are covered in your policy. Note that there are fees for any call out, examples include: False alarms, fires, medical first aid.
