The Regional District of Central Okanagan board has approved adding previously approved funding from one parks project to another.

The parks department is unable to complete $123,600 worth of budgeted work to remove, reconstruct and replace a bridge over Mission Creek in Kelowna this year.

Instead, the board supports contributing that money, along with $150,000 from the federal government, to replace sections of the north breakwater at Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park in Lake Country. Directors also support using $123,600 in 2014 to complete the bridge upgrade project next year.
