Keremeos sewer expansion grant

A major funding announcement was made in Keremeos Monday.

As part of the B.C. Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund, the federal and provincial governments invested more than $685,000 to allow Keremeos to extend its sewer to the Upper bench area.

The announcement was made by Okanagan-Westside MLA Rick Thorpe and Abbotsford MP Ed Fast.

Keremeos mayor Walter Despot says the money will all go towards moving Keremeos forward and maturing as a municipality.

“The infrastructure grant follows the infrastructure work we have done before,” says Despot.

The grant will extend the sewer benefits to about 250 people and includes a new pump station amongst the improvements.
