Council and Administration has been working throughout the day to look at options around the water meter crisis the Town of Slave Lake is currently facing.

At this time, the proposed changes, that were announced on February 22nd, will not take effect immediately as we explore other solutions.
Mayor Tyler Warman stated that talks have gotten underway with the Meter company to find a long term solution, “We have spoken to the water meter company who have provided us with some updated information on their supply issue. This conversation will assist the town in coming up with a better short-term and long-term solution..”

“Councils decisions are never made on the basis of making life harder,” Warman stated. “With this particular decision, we felt that we were on a temporary path and acknowledge that it wasn’t ideal but felt it could work.”

Council appreciated the public input over the last 24 hours.  “After speaking with residents, and several exhausting hours with administration we believe we can create something better,” Warman added.

The Town anticipates a stronger interim plan will be presented within the next two-weeks.
