A new funding formula for the Killiney Beach Community Hall has been given the green light.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan has adopted a bylaw that will see North Westside Road residents fund operations and maintenance of the hall at an annual cost not to exceed five cents per $1,000 of the assessed value of land and improvements.

“For an average property valued at $446,000 this year, the annual cost to fund the hall would be $14.49,” said Bruce Smith, communications co-ordinator, of the board’s decision following the Nov. 19 referendum. “Of the 291 votes cast within the service area, 177 people voted in favour while 114 voted against,” said Smith.

The hall will continue to be owned by the North Westside Communities Association.
