Greater Vernon parks meeting itinerary changes

Discussions about Greater Vernon’s parks and recreation function will continue, but details have changed.

Representatives from Vernon, Coldstream and the two electoral areas will get together today to try and resolve an ongoing conflict. But instead of meeting at the Regional District of North Okanagan from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the session will be from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

A meeting scheduled for April 30 has been cancelled.

The jurisdictions met in February, the first formal session of a parks and recreation review since last summer.

Participants have disagreed over governance of the function, control over parks maintenance, service contracts and who is responsible for the recreation complex.
