The OFID Board of Trustees intends to provide electors the opportunity to vote on
the following question:
Are you in favour of the OFID converting to services of the Regional District
of Okanagan–Similkameen, and the adoption of “Water Quality Enhancement Borrowing
Bylaw No.418” for water system upgrades?
The purpose of the bylaw is to borrow an amount not to exceed $3,500,000 (three million five hundred thousand dollars) to finance the cost of Water Quality and Safety that will be repaid over a period not to exceed 20 (twenty) years.
The service is the supply of potable water to the residents and owners of the Okanagan Falls Irrigation District.
A copy of “Water Quality Enhancement Borrowing Bylaw No. 418” and the Water Master Plan summarizing the required projects is available from the Irrigation District. Please email for a copy at firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice is also posted on our website okanaganfallsirrigationdistrict.ca
