Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee Update
Meeting held December 5
The City of St. Albert and Sturgeon County’s Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee met on December 5, 2018 to discuss the City’s proposed annexation of a portion of land from Sturgeon County.
At the meeting, the Sub-Committee discussed updates to the workplan and schedule for the annexation process, the public participation activities to date, and ongoing technical studies. The Sub-Committee also compared service levels and bylaws, considered transition requirements, and reviewed the 2019 meeting schedule.
“We are approaching this annexation in a collaborative manner, ensuring it meets the needs of everyone involved,” says Sturgeon County Councillor Susan Evans, Chair of the Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee.
“Our two municipalities have been and will continue to be good neighbours and we are committed to a comprehensive and thoughtful process,” says St. Albert Councillor Ray Watkins, Vice-Chair of the Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee.
The Sub-Committee is a subset of the IAC, the Intermunicipal Affairs Committee, which is made of up of all members of both Councils. The annexation negotiations formally started on December 6, 2017.
The next meeting of the Annexation Negotiating Committee is scheduled to take place on March 6, 2019.
