Mayor Rob Fehr

I am proud to have been able to represent the Village of Alix since 2008, and  now honoured to serve as Mayor. I moved here in 2005, and with my wife Terry and children, made a point of volunteering and enjoying everything Alix and area has to offer.

I have worked in the construction industry for many years, as a  Health, Safety, & Environment specialist as well as a Director of Emergency Management.

I have served on many boards and committees including; Recreation, Highway 12/21 Water Commission, Municipal Emergency Management, Alix Nature Trail Society, and the local Lions Club. I also volunteer as a member of the Blackfalds Victim Services Unit and the Parkland Regional Safety Committee as Vice-Chair.

I am committed to promoting a team environment where people feel that their voices are heard, and we can collectively make the Village of Alix a great place to live, play, and do business. Please feel free to chat with me if you see me out and about!!!

Councillor Ed Cole

I was born and raised in the national capital. After graduating from RMCP basic training in 1981, I was given the choice of serving in Alberta or British Columbia. I chose Alberta, a decision I have never regretted.

I did all my service serving at Swan Hills, Spruce Grove, Valleyview and Red Deer City, until I retired in 2001. Moving to Alix in 2011, I immediately felt very welcome, and part of the community. In 2017, I decided to return something to the community I felt was home, and stood for public office, as a Village Councillor.

I work as a Traffic Ticket Defense Agent, defending people on traffic and other provincial statues, in Her Majesty's courts. Prior to the RCMP, I served in the Naval Reserve as a Signalman (Sea) from 1976 to 1980, and later as a CIC Officer (Sea) from 1999 to 2015.

I am divorced with three grown children, who I am extremely proud of.
