Permanent stage off the table

Mayor John Vassilaki is no longer interested in the idea of adding a permanent stage and green room to Okanagan Lake Park.

He previously submitted a notice of motion asking the matter be debated during Tuesday’s council meeting. Vassilaki was absent from the meeting due to illness, but corporate services manager Laurie Darcus said the mayor had “changed his mind” and withdrawn the motion.

Two other motions from Couns. Campbell Watt and Jake Kimberley were endorsed by council Tuesday.

Watt’s motion will see staff look into ways to monitor speeds on local roadways. Council heard that photo-radar is currently not legal in B.C., so it’s not clear what a local government will be able to do about the issue.

Kimberley’s motion directed the city’s parks and rec committee to investigate adding security lighting and outdoor exercise equipment to Gyro Park.
