PURPOSE:
The Bylaw if adopted will proceed with borrowing $3,729,100 to install universal metering for water demand management and complete the distribution upgrades of the water line replacement to the Erickson water system.

AREA: The Bylaw No. 2738 will include the Erickson Water Distribution Service Area (Service Area) in Electoral Area B.

RATE IMPLICATIONS: The forecasted cost for property owners in the Service Area is identified in the above link.

ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS (AAP): Under Section 86 of the Community Charter, approval of the electors within the Service Area is being obtained by means of AAP. Therefore, eligible electors within the service area opposed to the RDCK adopting Bylaw No. 2738 may petition against the adoption by signing an Elector Response Form.

At least 10% of electors must petition against the proposal prior to the deadline date, which is at least 30 days after the last publication of the Notice, in order to prevent the Board from proceeding with the Bylaw without the approval of the electors.

ELECTOR RESPONSE FORM: The Elector Response Form must be in the form established by the Board and is available at the RDCK Creston Officer at 531B-16 Avenue South during regular office hours or click on the link below.

ATTN: Tom Dool, Chief Election Officers
Box 590, 202 Lakeside Drive
Nelson, BC   V1L 5R4

WHO MAY SIGN THE ELECTOR RESPONSE FORM: Electors, either resident or owning property, within the boundaries of the Service Area are the only persons entitled to sign the Elector Response Form. An elector is a person who meets the requirements and qualifications defined by the Local Government Act as described in detail on the Elector Response Form. The Board has resolved that a fair estimate of the total number of electors in the subject area is 1015. Accordingly, pursuant to Section 86(1)(c) of the Community Charter, 102 or more electors must sign the Elector Response Form to prevent the Board from proceeding without the approval of the electors.

DEADLINE: The Elector Response Form must be received by the Chief Elections Officer before 4:30 p.m. on May 10, 2021.
