County, Sylvan Lake Sign ICF

RDCounty Sylvan ICF

The approval of Red Deer County’s Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework with Sylvan Lake is an example of how well the municipalities work together, according to Red Deer County Mayor Jim Wood.

County council unanimously approved the ICF at their Oct. 2 meeting.

Wood said it was exciting to have a great working relationship with Sylvan Lake.

“Sylvan Lake has always been a great partner,” said Wood. “We work together on many aspects and I think we can be an example to many other municipalities. We’re doing the things most important to our residents, providing services in the most economical way we can and doing it in cooperation with our neighbours and sharing our facilities.”

The ICF outlines municipal services provided to residents on an intermunicipal basis such as transportation, wastewater, water, recreation, the Parkland Regional Library, assessment services, emergency services, weed control and the Intermunicipal Development Plan.

The ICF also outlines a dispute resolution mechanism. It aims to resolve disputes in a non-adversarial, informal and cost-efficient manner.

Sylvan Lake Mayor Sean McIyntre was in attendance at the County’s Oct. 2 council meeting to see the final vote, approving the ICF.

“We’ve had a great working relationship with the county over the last several years,” said McIntyre. “In that timeframe we’ve developed these agreements such as recreation and mutual aid for emergency services. We’re really just formalizing those agreements.”

The County is developing ICFs and IDPs with all municipalities it shares a border with due to provisions within the Alberta Municipal Government Act.
