Duties handed to Vernon council

Mayor Akbal Mund has named representatives to a number of boards and committees for 2018

There are no major changes when it comes to City of Vernon appointments.

Mayor Akbal Mund has named representatives to a number of boards and committees for 2018.

Heading back to the Regional District of North Okanagan board are Mund and Councillors Catherine Lord, Juliette Cunningham and Brian Quiring.

At the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee are Mund, Cunningham and Coun. Bob Spiers.

Coun. Scott Anderson will be the appointment to O’Keefe Ranch while Coun. Dalvir Nahal will be the representative at the Arts Council of North Okanagan.

Mund will be the liaison to the Okanagan Indian Band.

A fast pace continues to expand Kal Tire Place.

The trench that holds the cooling system has been poured and the roof decking has been started.

“They are far in advance of their schedules as far as the mechanical is concerned,” said Doug Ross, recreation manager.

The new ice sheet is expected to open in September 2018.
