Ålvundeid is a former municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The 179-square-kilometre (69 sq mi) municipality existed from 1899 until its dissolution in 1960. It had one of the smallest municipal populations in Norway. It was located in the northern part of the present-day Sunndal Municipality. The old municipality included the Innerdalen valley and the Ålvund valley area. The administrative centre was the village of Ålvundeidet, also where the Ålvundeid Church is located.[2]

History[edit]

The municipality of Ulvundeid was established on 1 January 1899 when it was split off from Øksendal municipality. The new municipality had an initial population of 462, making it one of the smallest municipalities in the county. The name was later changed to Ålvundeid. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1960, Ålvundeid Municipality (population: 513) was merged with Øksendal Municipality (population: 497) and Sunndal Municipality (population: 5,851) to form a new, larger Sunndal Municipality.[3]

Government[edit]

All municipalities in Norway, including Ålvundeid, are responsible for primary education (through 10th grade), outpatient health services, senior citizen services, unemployment and other social services, zoning, economic development, and municipal roads. The municipality is governed by a municipal council of elected representatives, which in turn elects a mayor.[4]
