Resident Electors in Cultus Lake Vote "Yes"
May 14, 2016
On May 14, 2016 resident electors in Cultus Lake Park voted on whether to borrow $3.9 million to fund the proposed Cultus Lake Integrated Water Supply and Distribution System. Total project costs will run $4.9 million and this project aims to integrate the Cultus Lake and Parkview water systems through the construction of new trunk and water mains, a new reservoir, as well as additional fire hydrants. The integrated system will improve water quality, correct low water pressure and ensure more adequate fire protection. Both water systems are managed by the Fraser Valley Regional District and construction would begin in September 2016 and carry through 2017.
While both the FVRD and the Cultus Lake Park Board supported this project, under British Columbia’s Local Government Act , resident electors in Cultus Lake park must vote on whether to authorize the borrowing of up to $3.9 million.
178 people voted at the advanced voting opportunity on May 4, 2016 and the general vote held on May 14. 158 resident electors voted in favour of borrowing $3.9M for upgrades to the Cultus Lake Park Water system while 20 resident electors voted against.
The official results for this asset vote will be available on May 16, 2016 and posted to both the FVRD and Cultus Lake Park web sites. Inquiries can be made to Suzanne Gresham, Chief Election Officer of the FVRD at (604) 702‐5032 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
