Dec. 22, 2020 – Ice Quake Impacts Lake Properties

The Summer Village of Val Quentin Council is aware that unfortunately an ice quake has impacted lakefront resident properties on the west side of the village.  The original event occurred on the evening of Friday, December 18, 2020, however, it appears there has been additional movement noted as recently as the afternoon of Sunday, December 20, 2020. 

 All lakefront residents are encouraged to check their properties for damages.  Since the full extent of the damages may not be fully evident until spring when the snow has gone, residents may also wish to contact Superior Safety Codes Inc. 780 489-4777 and arrange for an onsite building inspection. 

 We also encourage all residents to review your insurance policies to confirm if you have insurance coverage.
