The City of Nelson has a new sibling.

Last week, the City signed a municipal partnership agreement with the District of Kaoma, Zambia. Councillors Deb Kozak (far left) and Donna Macdonald (far right) joined Mayor John Dooley and Isabelle Herzig from the Nelson and Area Kaoma Alliance to sign the documents making the relationship official.

At last week’s council meeting, Macdonald said the relationship is about friendship and does not include a financial commitment or visits back and forth by delegates. Nelson currently has sister city relationships with Izushi, Japan and Baie-St-Paul, Quebec (which expires in March 2013). The Chamber is currently working on spearheading a partnership with Sandpoint, Idaho.
