2023 CERB Cheque Presentations

Annually, the Wheatland County Community Enhancement Regional Board (CERB) meet to review, evaluate, prioritize and decide the distribution of funding set aside in the Community Enhancement Reserve. During their regular Council meeting on May 16, 2023, Wheatland County Council approved the Community Enhancement Review Board’s (CERB) annual recommendations.

Successful applicants were invited to send representatives of their community groups to receive their funding on June 6, 2023, at the Wheatland County Administration Building.

Most groups were able to attend, with a small number requiring their cheque to be mailed and/or delivered directly from their Councillor.

Congratulations to all successful 2023 applicants!
