Meeting called by RDOS on the subject of flooding dangers in the Park Rill Creek Basin (Willowbrook to Okanagan River)
6:30 pm in one third hall plus more seats. Chaired by Director Terry Schafer with introduction of the subject by Bill Newell, CAO Regional District Okanagan Similkameen.
Panels include RDOS staff and provincial department spokespeople for Ministry of Transport (MOTI) and Forest Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO)
Concerns to be expressed: Proactive response or reactive thinking? Some people evacuated – when can we go home? – 85 percent of the people in the room not under an evacuation order but hoping they won’t be. What are the measures being taken to ‘mitigate’ the situation?
ODN’s Pat Hampson will file a full report at the conclusion of all the discussion.
