Province fixes, city pays

The City of Kelowna is being billed more than $900,000 for work the province has done on its behalf.

During the Highway 97 widening project from Highway 33 to Edwards Road, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure was asked by the city to make specific improvements with the construction area.

These included replacing some sanitary sewer mains, storm sewer upgrades, missing sections of sidewalk, McCurdy Road multi-use pathway crossing and installation of communication conduits.

The city also received a $100,000 credit from the ministry for replacement of the Welcome to Kelowna sign, which was removed during construction.

The budget for much of the work was included in various city budgets over the past three years. Sewer costs will be covered through deferred revenues.

Once the funding agreement is in place, the province will submit invoices to the city for compensation.

Construction has halted for now. However, the road widening project is expected to be complete later this year.
