Hear from Mountain View County Reeve Bruce Beattie regarding a couple of the highlights from the Wednesday, April 10th regular council meeting.
Reeve Bruce Beattie says the expansion would bring additional power to the industrial park in the southeast portion of the town of Olds.
He says council deferred the decision for now, but they do not want to hinder economic development and have asked Fortis to come back with a different proposal.
Mountain View County council also proposed an underground line, which is quite a bit more expensive.
According to Beattie, council is trying to reduce the impact on residents. He says from a safety perspective and policy, as having power poles on both sides of the road is something Mountain View County does not support.
