Electoral Area B requires a water function to continue to provide water services.

The PRRD is currently operating public water dispensing services in Electoral Area “B”. In order to continue to provide the existing services at Prespatou, Boundary and Fey Spring and to increase water services a water function must be established.   

Bylaw No. 2283 – “Electoral Area “B” Potable Water Service Establishment Bylaw No. 2283, 2017”.  If adopted, this bylaw will establish a Local Service Area known as the “Electoral Area ‘B’ Potable Water Service” and permit the Peace River Regional District to establish capital reserve and operating accounts to improve existing potable water tank loader sites, build new potable water tank loader sites and to maintain and operate these sites in the future.  

Bylaw No. 2284 -“Electoral Area ‘B’ Potable Water Facilities Construction Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 2284, 2017”.  In general terms, the intent of Bylaw No. 2284, 2017 is to authorize the borrowing of $4,000,000 for the purpose of upgrading and constructing potable water facilities in Electoral Area ‘B’.  The maximum term for which debentures may be issued to secure the debt created by this bylaw is ten (10) years.

Information meetings will be held from May 29 to June 22, 2017. A referendum will be held June 24, 2017.
