Lacombe County has approved an agreement to allow Alberta Health Services to use the ambulance station in Eckville.
The province took over ambulance service in the Eckville area last month. To accommodate their operations, the province wants to lease the Eckville Emergency Services Facility from the town and Lacombe County.
Since a lease must be approved by the minister of Health, which will take some time, an interim use and occupation agreement is needed.
Lacombe County and Eckville jointly own the emergency services facility.
Council approved the agreement on Thursday. Eckville has already approved the deal.
