The Regional District of Central Kootenay has agreed to assume management of three more water systems at Woodbury Village, Rosebery Highlands, and Grandview Properties.
Each has undergone extensive evaluation, and staff believe they pose low financial or liability risks. They are also confident they have the capacity to look after the systems.
Board policy further dictates that independent water and sewer systems must be financially self-sustainable before the RDCK agrees to take them over.
Petitions must be signed by property owners representing at least 50 per cent of the parcels liable to be charged for the service, and owners representing 50 per cent of the net taxable value of all the land involved. Those thresholds were met in each case.
