Saddle Hills County Initiates Mobility Agreement with TELUS
Posted on 01/26/2017
Saddle Hills County announced this week it will be working with Brian Bettis, TELUS’ General Manager for Northern Alberta, on a cost-sharing agreement to service the northern area of the County with mobility services in 2017.

A final agreement will be brought back to Council for approval in the first few months of 2017.

“The agreement initiated today, between TELUS and Saddle Hills County, will enable increased mobility service to a large portion of the County,” said Reeve Alvin Hubert.

Hubert hailed the agreement as historic saying, “It is tremendous news for the residents, business and industry in the northern portions of the County many of whom have suffered from a lack of reliable service for years.”

The proposed agreement will involve a 50/50 split of the costs for TELUS to build a brand new, state-of-the-art tower in Saddle Hills County with the specific intent of providing mobility services to that area of the County.

“We look forward to many years of working closely with TELUS for the benefit of the citizens, businesses and industry of Saddle Hills County.”
