Costly sewer management plan proceeds in Vernon

A multi-million-dollar plan for handling Vernon's effluent has moved to the next step.

On Monday, council approved 16 recommendations related to the proposed liquid waste management plan.

"Given all of the variables, this is a very good framework to work in the right direction," said Mayor Rob Sawatzky.

"Without a plan, you have no clue of where you are going."

It’s expected the total price tag for the liquid waste management plan is $38.5 million over 20 years. Of that, $25.3 million would come from new customers, $1.8 million from existing sewer ratepayers and $11.3 from taxpayers.

The liquid waste management plan must still be accepted by the Ministry of Environment.
