In order to fund the Intermunicipal Development Plan and the Intermunicipal Development Plan framework the Town of Millet council has directed staff to apply for the Alberta Community Partnership grant.
The grant is worth $50,000 and the decision came during council’s Nov. 23 meeting.
“The town would be a managing partner with this application,” said CAO Teri Pelletier.
The Intermunicipal Development Plan works in conjunction with the County of Wetaskiwin and a consultant is needed to help develop the collaboration framework.
The purpose of the grant is to improve the long term sustainability and viability of municipalities by providing support for regional collaboration and capacity-building initiatives.
