RDNO left waiting

The Union of BC Municipalities meeting is in less than two weeks, but some local politicians are wondering if they are going to be left in the cold.

The UBCM is an opportunity for municipal officials to meet face-to-face with provincial officials, but despite Regional District of North Okanagan making requests to do so, no meetings have yet been scheduled.

The UBCM runs from Sept. 23-27 on the Lower Mainland.

"They're cutting it down to the wire. Hopefully we will hear something soon," said Leah Mellott, general manager of electoral area administration.

Sessions between local and provincial officials are traditional at UBCM, and it allows local government to provide information on matters of concern.

RDNO staff requires time to prepare briefing notes for local directors if meetings with cabinet ministers take place.
