Tuesday, May 29th 2012 07:00

The Mountain View Museum has been operating in Olds since 1974 but in February the Olds Historical Society requested financial support from the town to keep its doors open.

On Monday night town council green lighted a financial support plan for the Olds Historical Society.

Based on a quarterly evaluation by town administration, it could see a total of $30,000 allocated to the Historical Society over the next 2 fiscal years. 

Olds Historical Society Chair Donna Erdman says the support from council is greatly appreciated.
