Revised: Changes made to fire service agreement between county, Town of Sexsmith

Revision: The article originally stated there was a change in service fees and administrative costs in the new Fire Service agreement between the two municipalities, however, there was no change to fees. The change made in the new agreement is both pay tables see the yearly amount plus the escalator percentage applied.

County council has approved changes to the Fire Service Agreement with the Town of Sexsmith.

The revisions made to the agreement included the town’s Chief Administrative Officer being part of the hiring process for the district chief. The two municipalities will also not start negotiations for a new contract until at least year five of the current agreement.

In the new agreement saw the pay table for the service fees the county would have to pay shows the amount per year with the escalator percentage applied. This is a change because in the old agreement, the table shows both the initial dollar amount and the annual escalator percentage. The same change was applied to the pay table for the administrative costs the town has to pay the county.
