Pellet Plant Gets A Go Ahead

Tolko Lavington
Another marathon for Coldstream council and a win for the pellet plant side.

The public hearing on rezoning property by the Lavington Tolko mill to allow the development of the 39 million dollar facility ran 6 hours last night, atop the 4 hours last Monday.

In the end council gave it's approval with councilors Doug Dirk, Gyula Kiss and Richard Enns opposed.

Mayor Jim Garlick says there's an important point the public should be aware of with the closing of the public hearing.

 He says "It will go to 4th vote next Monday, and again, just a reminder that no more information can be received by council on it.  That is legislated rules on how these bylaw, the zonings are,carried out."
Still required is highways final approval, an environmental permit on emissions and some Coldstream permits such as development and building.

"Full house" at Coldstream Council chambers.
