Council heard a request from Starland County to purchase land within the town of Drumheller. Starland County acquired the CLV Booster Station near Carillion’s shop in North Drumheller.

The Municipal Government Act requires the town to approve another municipality to purchase property within their boundaries. Council moved to go in camera. Council made a motion to provide a letter for their support of the county to purchase the land.
