It's been another busy year for the M.D. of Foothills.

Mayor Larry Spilak says one situation stands out for him though.

"I think that emerging from the Lexin situation, the oil and gas problem that came up in our jurisdiction. Without having to cut services or increase taxes beyond inflation was huge. I can credit that to a very efficient staff, who went to work for Council to find ways of making up the difference."

He says getting a rebate on the school portion of property tax from the province on orphaned or abandoned wells from the Province was also a significant development in 2017.
