Sprucing up for the AKBLG

Convention delegates to tour flume rehab and SunMine

City workers install wooden fencing along the rehabbed flume Tuesday.

City crews were working hard this week to clean up the area around the Mark Creek flume rehab project. Top soil is going down and the base for another timber frame bridge has been installed. The City has a grant from Columbia Basin Trust to do the landscaping and put in some trees and wood fencing.

There is some urgency to the clean up as today, Wednesday, April 27, delegates in town for the Association of Kootenay Boundary Municipalities convention at the Conference Centre are touring the rehab project and the SunMine.

Mayor Don McCormick says that of the 200 delegates who will be attending the conference this week, over 80 have signed up for the tours.

A pre-conference workshop was held Tuesday, today is delegate sign up and tours, and the AKBLG conference officially opens Thursday morning and runs through the weekend.

Kimberley restaurants can also expect to be busy this evening as delegates all received $25 meal vouchers and are encouraged to get out and get a taste of Kimberley.
