A committee looking at setting up a trail between Penhold and Bowden has received some support from Red Deer County.

Council voted on Tuesday to include Coun. Dave Hoar and the county’s community services manager on the committee.

It is hoped a consultant can be hired to do a concept and feasibility study for a link between Penhold and Bowden. The study could cost $20,000 to $25,000. Up to 70 per cent of that cost might be covered by grants from Alberta Trail Net and Trans Canada Trail Foundation, with the municipalities sharing the rest of the bill.

Several councillors expressed reluctance to commit county money towards the project without knowing more about cost-sharing.

Council agreed it should have representatives on the committee, but stopped short of making any financial commitment.
