Clearwater County residents packed into Dovercourt Hall Monday night to voice their concerns about the County's proposed administrative building.
The majority of those in attendance were vehemently opposed to the $30-million building, citing uncertain economic times and threatened funding from the provincial government.
County Reeve Pat Alexander says now is the time to build due to decreased labour and material cost, and that the County eventually needs a new building to support staffing and equipment needs.
Residents were quick to point out the county could rent space in different areas of Rocky Mountain House.
Alexander says the decision to go ahead and build still needs to take place, and says the construction time line can reflect what rate-payers are most comfortable with.
