Electoral approval obtained for Salmo and Electoral Area G Library Financial Aid Service bylaw

Nelson, BC:  The results of the alternative approval process (AAP) seeking electoral approval to repeal and replace Salmo and Portion of Electoral Area G Library Financial Service Bylaw have been tabulated and certified. Electoral approval for a new bylaw was obtained to expand the service and include all of Electoral Area G for the purpose of funding the Salmo Valley Public Library

A total of 0 electoral response forms were received by the AAP deadline. This is less than the 10% of eligible electors required to prevent the Board from proceeding with the bylaw. The results will be presented to the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) Board of Directors at the September 22 meeting. If approved by the Board, Salmo and Portion of Electoral Area G Library Financial Aid Bylaw No. 791, 1990, will be repealed and replaced with Salmo and Electoral Area G Library Financial Aid Service Bylaw No. 2837, 2022.

This new bylaw will provide additional funding from 145 properties in Electoral Area G to the Salmo Valley Public Library.
