Wetaskiwin county accepts city JEDI termination with letter

Special JEDI meeting scheduled for Aug. 1

Following the City of Wetaskiwin’s decision to leave the Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) agreement, effective Dec. 31, 2017, the County of Wetaskiwin has, publicly, kept fairly quiet on the decision to date.

During county council’s July 18 meeting councillors accepted administration’s recommendation to have a letter sent to the City of Wetaskiwin.

“Administration has recommended you accept, and notify the city you accept, they’re opting out,” said county CAO Frank Coutney.

A special JEDI board meeting will be held Aug. 1 at 4:30 p.m. in the County of Wetaskiwin council chambers. The meeting is open to the public for anyone wishing to attend.

Millet town council at their July 19 meeting also accepted the city’s decision to leave JEDI in a unanimous motion.
