Deadline approaches to Nominate a Property

Property owners in Ponoka who have spent the time and energy to beautify their land could win a $500 utility credit.

Property owners in Ponoka who have spent the time and energy to beautify their land could win a $500 utility credit if judges deem it the best.

Hosted by the Town of Ponoka, the Pride in Your Property contest awards the first place home with a $500 town utility credit and a $250 credit for the second place winner, explained communications officer Donna Brinkworth.

A category for commercial/industrial is also up for grabs and features the same utility credit, she added.

However, the deadline to nominate a property is set for Friday, July 31 if landowners want to be eligible. Brinkworth said a homeowner/business owner can nominate themselves or someone they feel has worked hard to care for, and beautify their property.

“It would be really neat to see a resident nominate a business,” said Brinkworth.

She suggests residents have much pride in their property and this contest is a way to recognize their hard work. She added this contest ties closely with the Communities in Bloom contest of which the town is a member.

Last year judges were pleased with their first visit to the town and Brinkworth looks forward to hearing their comments this year.

Judges for the Pride in Your Property contest are Coun. Teri Underhill and town employee, Val Schabert, who also takes care of the Forest Home Cemetery. Residents can nominate a property at the Town of Ponoka offices or download a form from the website www.ponoka.ca.
