Penticton council highlights

Replacing the floor tiles at the Penticton Community Centre pool will be under discussion at Monday's council meeting.

The change is needed after people reported serious injuries from slipping on the slick surface. The city also weighed costs of doing the replacement versus ongoing maintenance.

The options to be presented include shutting down the centre pool from Nov. 17, 2014 to Jan. 4, 2015, with a net impact of $28,500 or a closure from July 25, 2015 to Sept. 13, 2015, with a net impact of $44,500.

The tile in question is part of the pool area, which reopened along with the rest of the community centre in June of 2011, after a renovation and expansion of the facility.

Council subsequently approved the replacement of the tiles at the June 9, 2014 council meeting.

Also on tonight's agenda, is a restrictive covenant for the South Okanagan Performing Arts Centre

  • a liquor primary license application for the Regency Resort Retirement Home
  • a lease/license to use renewal re: Leir House
  • energy retrofit loan program update
  • recreation department 2013 and 2014 year to date review
  • advance polls for the 2014 local election
  • Carmi and Wiltse School traffic calming
  • community grants policy

Presentations will be given by the South Okanagan Women in Need Society, regarding their services and strategic plan, and the Shatford Centre/Okanagan School of the Arts, in regards to Encaustic Okanagan.

A public hearing on the official community plan amendment for the Upper Wiltse area structure plan will start off the evening.
