Water Devolution -- The continued saga.

Interesting turn of events: While NORD has engaged Allan Nielsen-Welch as a facilitator in reviewing the Greater Vernon Water structure and the various participants have appointed their respective representatives, the City of Vernon instructed its solicitors to appeal (seek judicial review of) the decision of Arbitrator Wallace.

Any attempt to reduce legal fees in respective budgets appear to be premature. Is it worth reviewing the structure of Greater Vernon Water in light of these developments? Only time will tell. Stay tuned!

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
