There are still concerns from residents in the RM of Edenwold about the potential annexation of Emerald Park.
The town of White City held an open house last night on the matter, hoping to answer any questions the community had.
RM of Edenwold Urban Municipal Planner Jana Jedlic says there’s still a lot of unanswered questions.
“Concerns with respect to the actual impacts on property taxes, and concerns with respect to how the town can actually fulfill what they are saying they can fulfill with respect to the services and actually managing a municipality that size.”
However, Jedlic says the RM is open to discussion.
“The proposal on the table is one option, which essentially moves the line between the two communities,” Jedlic says. “But at the end of the day, if this proposal were to go ahead, it’s simply moving the line over; it’s not actually changing anything about the municipal structure or the government structures in the area.”
White City Mayor Bruce Evans made the One Community One Voice announcement on May 16th.
