Airdrie City Council and Rocky View County (RVC) Council have both voted to endorse the Airdrie-Rocky View County Master Shared Services Agreement (MSSA).

Airdrie Councillors endorsed the agreement back on February 20 but had to wait for the RVC Council to endorse it before the agreement could be completed. On February 27, the RVC council voted to approve the agreement at their council meeting.

The MSSA will provide a clear understanding of shared services and their delivery which will lead to fair, cost-effective, and efficient provision of essential services that enhance the well-being of residents and businesses in both Airdrie and RVC. The MSSA will also govern all current inter-municipal servicing agreements.

Both councils directed administrations to start working on an MSSA in July 2021 by starting with approving a project Terms of Reference and Project Management Plan.

The Intermunicipal Committee (IMC) facilitated elected officials in providing oversight and functioning as a negotiating committee at the elected level.

The IMC granted preliminary approval to the MSSA on December 1, 2023, pending approval from the respective Councils. It also was reviewed by legal counsel last month.

Here are some things the MSSA will provide clarity on:

  • Emergency Management (including Fire)
  • Recreation
  • Transportation
  • Solid Waste

A few services that have been identified as 'future agreements' within the MSSA are transit for Airdrie, road maintenance and cemetery services for RVC.
