Where do you want to spend your money?

Council seems set on the Ross Street Underpass. To date they have leased the land from Bill Laird and spent over 35,000.00. Now they have all voted in favour of spending 443,000.00 to have the engineering drawings made up; all of which is non refundable.

At that point we will find out the bill – probably upwards of 4 million by the time it’s all done.

It was a “numbers” council meeting on Monday.

The 2014 final budget after all the bills were paid showed a surplus of $43,000.

Council approved several applications for street closures, the applications for upcoming biking and hiking events, such as Wild Soles hiking, Salty Dog bike race, Okanagan-Shuswap Century ride. It is nice to see so many outdoor activities happening here. 

Foothill Road repairs due to the road slippage have so far cost $300,000. The City was scrambling to come up those dollars and we still have to pave it yet. We have applied for emergency funding, from the province to help pay for it. So far we have not heard from them.

Council received 31 letters from residents requesting Council support the Shuswap Watershed Council. Council is looking for more information on the budget for this program before committing funding for it.
