The Peace River Regional District to hold water and sewer functions referendum

The referendum will proceed sometime in 2015 to vote on whether or not residents support the establishment of a water service and domestic sewage area, according to the PRRD. There will also be a separate referendum in each electoral area for water and sewer services.

The PRRD says there will be no borrowing for the project.

Through 15 public meeting, the PRRD gauged rural residents’ opinion on the proposed option for region-wide water a sewer service. Within these meeting, the PRRD says Electoral Area Directors discovered that the public would rather use a referendum as the approval process, as well as using only ‘improvements’ and not ‘land and improvements’ as part of the taxable assessment.

Rural residents also say that those who need the services should pay for it, according to the PRRD.

The Rural Budget Committee of the PRRD has approved funding from Area B and C FairShare to establish a temporary domestic sewage lagoon at the Charlie Lake lagoons until such a time when the results of a referendum are met.
