District of Coldstream residents will have two ballots to mark on Oct. 15.

Resident approval is being sought via referendum to borrow $8.5 million for a new public works building, new storage facilities and renovating the old fire hall.

“The new building will replace existing structures that have reached the end of their useful life,” stated the district in a news release.

“Additionally, the new public works bulding will improve working conditions and operational efficiency of district staff.”

The work will cost $10.92 million but the district already has $2.42 million saved up.

Residents can get more details about the projects at an open house and site tour Wednesday, Sept. 21 and 27, 4-8 p.m. each day, or visit coldstream.ca.

The open house will take place at the Coldstream Municipal Office at 9901 Kalamalka Rd. and the site tour will commence from the municipal office.
