City of Edmonton and Leduc County continue negotiations

Council representatives from both the City of Edmonton and Leduc County met Friday, May 22, 2015 to further annexation negotiations.

As clarification on recent media coverage regarding Edmonton Police Services resource requirements, Mayor Iveson stated:

"The Edmonton Police Commission's 2016-2018 business plan identified the potential need for additional EPS officers in place of RCMP currently serving the proposed annexation area. The ultimate timing and resource requirements are yet to be determined by City Council."

Annexation is a provincially regulated process and negotiation is part of the mandated process. The next negotiation session is scheduled for July 10, 2015.
