On November 2, 2023, the first meeting of the Clearwater County & Village of Caroline Amalgamation Councils Committee of the Whole was held in the Clearwater County Council Chamber.
These meetings mark the beginning of formal negotiations, with a focus on transparency through live-streaming and recordings on our YouTube Channel. The establishment of this Amalgamation Committee comes from recently passed bylaws that enable the two municipalities to formally enter negotiations prior to making a decision on whether or not to pursue amalgamation.
This website will serve to provide regular updates to residents of both communities as information becomes available.
It is important to note that no final decision has been made about amalgamation by either Village Council or Clearwater County Council yet. The decision must be made by both the County and the Village, and then a request will be sent to the Province of Alberta.
