We may be heading into a warm weekend, but Kamloops council was discussing snow removal during a workshop.
Council indicating it will consider a hike of 25 per cent to 2 million dollars a year in the 2019 budget this fall, but there was no approval today.
Tina Lange says, the request is reasonable.
“I think that the public has said that they’re willing to spend the money. So it looks reasonable to me, of course we all need to see the entire budget that comes forward, but it doesn’t seem ridiculous, and as you’ve said, we have grown, so good job, thank you.”
Streets and Environmental Services Manager Glen Farrow told council the demand for snow removal services has increased.
“Whats differing is the expectations. The demands, the high expectations of the general public, we’ve seen that increase significantly over the years.”
Phase two of the proposal calls for spending 3.1 million dollars for equipment and salt storage.
Both phases of the proposal will be up for discussion later this year.
