Town Services

Message from Mayor

Welcome to our town. I am excited to serve our growing community for a second term. My sincere desire is to engage our citizens in the decisions of the town. Times are still a bit challenging and as we continue to grow and prosper it is important we have all residents engaged in the process.

Our richness lies in the character and uniqueness of it’s citizens. No one is ever a stranger here. Whether you come for a visit, stop by to shop, are posted here with the military, or are deciding to move here we will say “hi” or “good day, how are you” and take the time to listen to your story. We are so lucky to have a diverse economy of Military, Farming and Oilfield to keep us vibrant in all economic conditions.

Having said that….did you know that in a 2016 government survey Wainwright was listed as # 1 for cost of living advantage. We are darn proud of that and strive to keep it that way.  Yep, we are a small town with a “Huge Heart” offering a great family lifestyle with affordable living. This is our Home and we welcome you to visit or join on in.

I am so proud of this community and it’s people that I could go on and on but all the information you need is on this website. Enjoy the site and contact the town office if you don't find what your looking for. If your considering a move here..go for it, just visiting…enjoy, looking to move your business here….just do it, our doors are open.

A town is only as great as its people and our people are the greatest.

 Best Regards,


Mayor Brian Bethune
