Magrath town council has passed a resolution for an ACP grant.
During their regular Jan. 12 meeting, council had discussed supporting an Alberta Community Partnership grant for a Regional Fire and Emergency Services Review, submitted by the Town of Cardston, the Town of Magrath would participate in.
“The regional emergency plan review is still in the early stages and is why (we’re) applying for the ACP grant. However, each of the communities is jointly working towards updating our emergency plans. As part of the process, if it is agreed to by all the municipal councils, a regional committee will be established to ensure continuing legislative compliance with an agreement to assist each other in the event of a major emergency or disaster,” said James Suffredine, CAO for Magrath.
Council passed a motion for a resolution, as follows: “Be it resolved we authorize the Town of Magrath to participate in an application for the Regional Fire and Emergency Services Review submitted by the Town of Cardston, under the Intermunicipal Collaboration component of the Alberta Community Partnership Grant — further, the Town of Magrath, a participant, agrees to abide by the terms of the Conditional Grant Agreement, governing the purpose and use of the grant funds.”
