The Regional District of Central Okanagan administration office will be closed during the upcoming holiday period.

The KLO Road building will be closed from Dec. 24 through Jan. 1, 2013, and will reopen at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2.

While the majority of staff will be off during this time, approximately two dozen employees will continue to provide important services.

“Throughout this holiday closure, Regional District 9-1-1 Communications Centre operators and Victim Services staff will continue to provide assistance,” says Communications Officer Bruce Smith.

“As well, our Dog Control Officers will be patrolling and responding to calls and some Regional Parks staff will be doing routine maintenance.”

In addition, the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant and the six Regional District water systems will be on the job over the holidays.

The Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre on Asquith Road will not be affected by the holiday and the Asquith Road Recycling drop off centre will be closed on the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, but is open all other days from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.

The Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan or EECO in Mission Creek Regional Park will be closed from Dec. 22 through Dec. 26 as well as Monday, Dec. 31 and Tuesday, Jan. 1.

Curbside garbage and recycling collection will not take place on either Christmas or New Year’s days. Everything returns to the normal Monday through Friday collection schedule on Monday, Jan. 7.  For more information, visit their website.
