Nakusp area and Ymir residents are currently being asked about establishing two new services.

There’s currently an Alternative Approval Process (APP) launched in Nakusp and a portion of Area K. It would establish a grant-in-aid service for the Arrow Lakes Historical Society Archives to cover operating expenses. It would generate up to $24,000 which breaks down to $16.11 for a home valued at $300,000.

In Ymir, the new service would create funds to operate and maintain the cemetery. The amount generated is $3,000 which means $18 for a property assessed at $300,000.

At least 10 per cent of electors must petition against the proposal prior to the deadline, which is November 14 at 4:30pm for Ymir residents and November 13 at 4:30pm for Nakusp and area residents.
