Water project open house set for Nov. 5 in Parksville

The city is hosting this drop-in format event at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre

The referendum is coming, but not before an open house.

On Thursday, Nov. 5, the City of Parksville will host a drop-in format open house about the Englishman River Water Service project at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre from 2-7 p.m. The city says this information session will provide residents the opportunity to view plans for the project and also provide information on project funding sources in anticipation of the referendum scheduled for Nov. 21.

In the Nov. 21 referendum, the city is asking residents to approve a bylaw to authorize the borrowing of up to $5.6 million to construct a new water intake, water treatment plant and transmission lines. Advance voting days are Nov. 12 and Nov. 18.
