Olds has renewed an agreement to provide fire service to the surrounding area in Mountain View County.
Under the terms of the new deal, the county will provide $255,000 in funding this year as part of a long-term agreement.
The town and county have joined forces on a number of fronts, as laid out in a 10-year memorandum of agreement signed in 2007.
Mountain View County provides an annual grant to the town to help cover the cost of providing recreation, culture and library programs and to assist with the operation and maintenance of facilities.
This year, the grant will be $330,000, to bring the total financial contribution from the county to $585,000.
