What is Intermunicipal Collaborative Framework (ICF) and why are we doing this?
Updated Legislation to Bill 21 – Modernized Municipal Government Act - requires communities that border one another to collaborate to maximize tax dollars and enhance services to their Residents by creating an intermunicipal collaborative frameworks or ICFs.
• Municipalities working together to ensure consistent optimal service to your greater Pincher Creek Community needs, versus the individual Municipality’s needs
• Maximize resources, minimize duplication, share best practices, to learn, grow and ensure continued services
• Obtain and value Public input
• Approach issues from a place of understanding and explore the possibilities of how the funding and implementation can be managed
