Joint Press Release - Provincial funding announced for Woodlands County and Whitecourt intermunicipal collaboration project
Woodlands County has received $50,000 from the Alberta Community Partnership program to manage and complete the Intermunicipal Framework Negotiations project.
The Municipal Government Act requires all municipalities prepare Intermunicipal Collaboration Frameworks (ICF). The framework will formalize how municipalities that share borders will manage growth, coordinate service delivery, and optimize resources for citizens.
Woodlands County and Whitecourt have respected history of partnership projects and initiatives. This project will further build on agreements currently formalized and under negotiation; and provide continuous, seamless and enhanced services to residents of both communities.
