Council's 2022-2024 Strategic Plan

 The Council for the County of Northern Lights recently met to review their Strategic Plan for 2021 – 2023 to provide an updated plan for the incoming Council following October’s municipal elections. 

We are pleased to provide this status of goals to our residents. 

  • Levels of Service – the policy was adopted after public input, and roads will be classified prior to the municipal election.
  • The Water policy was revised, and the County will continue to move towards cost recovery by the year 2031.
  • A committee of interested users met and put together a Request for Proposals for the operation of the Chinchaga Forestry Road. The RFP is currently out and closes on October 5, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.
  • Due partially to a drop in assessment, the 2021 mill rates were increased between 3.32% and 6.00%
  • All Council meetings will continue to have the option for people to attend via Zoom to allow for more public engagement.
  • Fire Risk Assessments are underway in the Dixonville area to assist residents in making their properties Fire Smart.
  • After considerable lobbying to the Provincial Government, our provincial parks remained open and continue to be operated by the province with some reduced services.
  • Council continues to provide support to our local health care providers in whatever way we can, understanding that health care is a provincial responsibility.

The Strategic Plan for the next three years is available here, or by contacting the County office. Following the municipal elections, the plan may be revised.
