Rural Communications Strategy

In order for Council to move ahead with the county’s Rural Communication Strategy, Yellowhead County will move forward with the implementation of up to four (4) towers in the County's east end to provide service to these underserved areas of the County. The County has entered into an agreement with Vitel Consulting to develop a three phase plan for the construction of communication towers to be operated by the County.

The new towers will strengthen opportunities for improved communications in the County. Yellowhead County considers a tower network (internet/cell/radio) as a utility and is moving forward with the implementation of four towers in the County's east end to provide service to these underserved areas of the County.

The contract includes three phases:

1. Planning – includes site selection, community consultation, marketing, and schedule.

 2. Building – construction of towers.

3. Operations – regular operations and maintenance would transition to County.
