August 23, 2022

At its regular meeting of August 22nd, 2022, Council moved to rescind the July 12, 2021 ‘Notice of Termination of Fire Sub Agreement’ to Mountain View County from the Town of Olds. 

The Town and County have been working together for several months on updating the fire services agreement and are happy to report that progress has been made and discussions are continuing. Both municipalities recognize the need to work together on behalf of the citizens of our region and to find ways to address the challenges and opportunities we face. 

“The Town of Olds and Mountain View County share not just a border but people, services, and history and we know that we are stronger when we work together. A productive and long-term fire relationship is in the best interests of our residents, our volunteer fire fighters, and our region and we are pleased to announce this step.”
-    Mayor Judy Dahl, Town of Olds

Members of the Inter-Municipal Cooperation Committee (ICC) will continue working toward a new agreement and hope to have an update to share soon.
