Strathcona County council was happy with the way annexation negotiations went and they decided to give Fort residents a little gift.
From now until December 31, all Strathcona County facilities that allow millennium cards will grant free admission for Fort Saskatchewan multi-facility pass card holders.
Councillor Brian Botterill brought the idea forward on Tuesday (Sept.11), stating it's a start for building a better relationship.
"We decided to take the step ahead and accept Fort Saskatchewan recreation passes at our facilities in order to help remove the barriers between all our two municipalities for all of our residents," said Botterill.
County councillors Katie Berghofer and Dave Anderson were the only two not in favour of this decision.
"We're going to give something away for free that we charge our residents to access here," said Anderson.
The Fort's multi-facility pass cards can be used at the Dow Centennial Centre and Harbour Pool.
Millennium cards can be used at Millennium Place, Glen Allan Recreation Complex, Ardrossan Recreation Complex, Emerald Hills Leisure Centre, Kinsmen Leisure Centre and the Strathcona Wilderness Centre.
