Greater Vernon heading to referendum
Greater Vernon residents will have their say on a proposed sports complex.
The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee agreed Thursday to hold an April 6 referendum to borrow $8.5 million for a track and multi-use field at Okanagan College.
"The facility warrants support," said director Bob Fleming.
However, others admit there will be public opposition.
"It's always a tough sell when it comes to money," said director Jim Garlick.
The money would be borrowed over 20 years and the average household cost would be between $17 and $20 a year.
