Building a Better Vernon, Together!
Council Continues To Invest In Vernon’s Infrastructure
Showing Council’s commitment to renewing the roads, pipes and all City owned infrastructure, Council supported the $13 million Capital Budget at the Budget Meeting of November 30, 2016. The impacts of the 1.9% cumulative infrastructure levy, directed entirely and immediately to infrastructure, are now becoming visible throughout the City with $13 million being spent on rehabilitation and improvements in 2017. The larger projects for 2017 include the continuation of the 30th Street project to 34th Avenue from the work completed in 2016, and the rehabilitation of Kalamalka Lake Road from 14th Avenue to the City boundary with the addition of a separated multi-use path. Twenty one smaller but equally important renewal and reconstruction projects round out the 2017 Capital Project list.
