Surplus Funds Released to Municipal Members
Last week, Directors approved the distribution of $2 million in unrestricted surplus funds. Beaver Municipal Solutions had previously received ministerial approval to distribute these funds to the municipal members based on the 2019 audited financial statements.
Distribution of the $2,000,000 was as follows:
- Beaver County: $928,458.90
- Town of Tofield: $413,546.08
- Town of Viking: $279,162.46
- Village of Ryley: $198,370.70
- Village of Holden: $180,461.86
Beaver Municipal Solutions is pleased to have been able to distribute over $14,000,000 in unrestricted surplus funds since 2013, as a way of giving back to the community in which it operates. Very few, if any, small communities in Alberta receive such an annual windfall, especially considering the current economic climate. The current proposal to transition to a municipal control corporation will help ensure these surplus distributions continue.
