Lacombe County appoints reeve and deputy reeve

  • Oct. 23, 2019 2:30 p.m.

Paula Law has been elected Lacombe County reeve for a seventh one-year term.

“It is my honour and privilege to serve another term … and to continue advocating for our residents and for central Alberta on regional, provincial and federal issues,” said Law, councillor for Division 4, on Tuesday.

“I appreciate the trust and confidence my fellow councillors have in me, and I’m committed to working with this passionate group of individuals to serve Lacombe County.”

Law says she is looking forward to another busy year. Discussions continue for intermunicipal collaboration frameworks – a new requirement under the Municipal Government Act – and updating intermunicipal development plans.

“We are fortunate at Lacombe County to have positive, long-standing relationships with our neighbouring municipalities on these important agreements that will ensure mutual understanding and co-operation between our communities,” said Law.

Council reappointed Division 5 Coun. Ken Wigmore as deputy reeve, which is a two-year term.
