Residents, small business owners and agricultural producers can apply for aid by attending a registration centre location.

The City of Lacombe and Lacombe County will host joint registration centres on Monday, Sept. 26, and Tuesday, Sept. 27. Applicants register at the Centennial Hall at the Lacombe Memorial Centre at 5214 50th Ave. from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
