Meeting held June 26, 2020
The City of St. Albert and Sturgeon County’s Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee met on June 26, 2020 to discuss the City’s proposed annexation of a portion of land from Sturgeon County.
At the meeting, the sub-committee discussed aspects of the annexation agreement, including effective date and dispute resolution, as well as continued the discussion around compensation.
“I’m pleased the City and the County continue to support a collaborative annexation process,” says City of St. Albert Councillor and sub-committee chair Ray Watkins.
“We look forward to continuing dialogue on how to best serve our respective residents where the two municipalities interface,” says Sturgeon County Mayor Alanna Hnatiw.
The Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee is a subset of the Intermunicipal Affairs Committee (IAC), which is comprised of all members of both Councils. Annexation negotiations formally started on December 6, 2017. The next sub-committee meeting is scheduled to take place August 7, 2020. For more information, visit stalbert.ca and search Annexation.
