District offers up water calls

Coldstream officials will make it easier for residents who have concerns about water quality.

Residents often call the municipal office about water issues, only to be told that they have to call the Regional District of North Okanagan which oversees the water utility. Now, instead of residents making a second call, Coldstream employees will contact the regional district on behalf of the resident.

“We want to provide better service for customers by moving their concerns forward,” said Michael Stamhuis, chief administrative officer.

Morale strong at fire halls

Enthusiasm is strong at the Coldstream and Lavington fire halls.

Both departments have submitted their 2012 annual reports to Coldstream council.

“The reports are a reflection of where we are and where we are trying to go in the community,” said Shane Code, Coldstream fire chief.

Mayor Jim Garlick recently met with firefighters from both halls.

“The attitude and morale is great,” said Garlick.
