The County of Grande Prairie and Saddle Hills County have an agreement in place to make work between the two a little easier.
The Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework will help the two sets of government more efficiently share information when it comes to projects which impact both geographical territories.
“We are lucky to have good neighbours and, more than just a common boundary, we share a mutual commitment to work with one another,” said Saddle Hills County Reeve Alvin Hubert.
County of Grande Prairie Reeve Leanne Beaupre says the agreement could also save both sides money in the long run.
“A lot of times in rural projects that one municipality is doing really does resonate with the other municipalities. At times they can be driven by cost savings for sure.”
An intermunicipal collaboration framework is now required between two municipalities who share a border as part of the Municipal Government Act.
