Lake Country looking for more public opinion as it looks to invest $100 million into its infrastructure over the next 20 years

Close to 40 Lake Country residents were out Thursday night as the District of Lake Country held a Transportation for Tomorrow open meeting, looking at the future of the municipality’s roadways.

People were able to extress their viewpoints  with district staff, who is looking at revamping over 200 kilometres of roads in Lake Country, that are in need of repair.

Residents are encouraged to visit the www.lakecountry.bc.ca website and click on the Transportation for Tomorrow link on the right hand side. You can see brief videos and have your say by completing the online survey.

The district is proposing a $250 per year, per household tax increase to cover the costs of the improvements to the roads, most of which were built around 1970.

Budget deliberations by Lake Country council are underway for 2014.
