District describes successful sewer info session

  • Jun. 8, 2011 2:00 p.m.

A four hour public information session on the topic of Sooke’s sewer system was held on May 25 in the district council chamber.

District of Sooke Corporate Officer Bonnie Sprinkling said the following morning that organizers of this type of event are always hoping for a good turnout. She added that with everything going on it can be a challenge to pick the ideal time.

Those points being made, she said the event had positive fallout as the people canvassed indicated they’d received the information they sought.

Detailed information relating to the sewer system and how, by whom, and for how long it may be operated in the future was available at the session.

About 30 people accepted the District’s offer.

From the questions and answers, a new “Frequently Asked Questions” information sheet has been placed on the District of Sooke website, along with all the information posters presented at the meeting. Please see http://sooke.ca/EN/main/government/corpservices/sewer_agreement.html for this updated information.
