Signs posted along Okanagan Indian Band properties after “contamination event”

Flooding will be the main topic at a town hall meeting hosted by the Okanagan Indian Band.

The band announced a meeting set for Saturday, from 6-to-9 p.m. at the Head of the Lake Hall.

Topics to be discussed include updates on weather, power utility services, Emergency Management B.C. and disaster financial assistance.

The meeting is open to all residents who have been affected by flooding on IR#1-Okanagan and IR #6-Priest Valley.

Both reserves had waterfront health advisory signs posted by the First Nations Health Authority along properties Wednesday.

The signs recommend people and pets not come in contact with the waterfront or water.
