PRESS RELEASE RE: Contested Election


The Town of Rocky Mountain House has been informed that the two Applicants have filed Discontinuances of their court action regarding judicial review.   Council and staff are satisfied with this conclusion and are ready to look forward to the formal conclusion of these proceedings.

 The Application has cost the Town more than $30,000 to date with more expenses to come to finalize the legal process.

Council has reviewed the options of recovering these costs so our citizens are not financially burdened with this discontinued legal action. The Town has been advised by legal counsel that it is likely to be awarded minimal, not all, costs of the action. However, the legal expense to do so, may not financially justify such action.

In consideration of this and the staff time it would consume, Council has elected not to pursue costs. It is our firm belief we already lost valuable time and money on this issue. It is more important that we focus our efforts on advancing Rocky Mountain House and making our community stronger.

Town Council would like to thank all our election workers who did an outstanding job and had to endure this process. Council sincerely appreciates your volunteerism and patience in this matter.
