District puts pressure on province

Mayor Jim Garlick recently met with Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster

Coldstream is keeping on top of the province to ensure its concerns are taken seriously.

Mayor Jim Garlick recently met with Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster, and discussions took place around everything from manure management to the Kal Lake lookout and amalgamation of Greater Vernon.

Following the contamination case which ended up in the courts, Coldstream has been pushing to ensure proper protections are in place to prevent further water contamination.

The meeting with Foster helped Garlick make sure that legislation is still moving in the right direction for protection.

Coldstream has also been pushing to have the province assist with cleanup of the popular Kal Lake lookout.

“He said they have just been having some discussions on it and getting it (ownership) changed.”

Garlick also cautioned against the province giving groups, like the Greater Vernon Governance Society, grants.

Coldstream will hear from the governance society Jan. 13, and is requesting a list of all of the petition signatures in advance.

“We would like all members of council in attendance for that,” said Garlick.
