Kneehill County councillors want more information from their staff and directly from “Three Hills east” area residents before moving forward with any water system work.

Councillors had an intense discussion at their July 20 regular meeting on the issue.

Council heard a report from John McKiernan, manager of environmental services, on water delivery options for residents who live in the county east of the Town of Three Hills, and he noted council passed a resolution that staff do so.

McKiernan’s report listed five options for council to consider, reminding councillors the county recently conducted a mail-out public consultation on this issue.

Option A proposed the county “Engineer, construct, and operate a water system that encompasses the previously defined Three Hills east area” with a price tag of up to $11.2 million.
