Facility tour, open house provides Osoyoos residents with clearer picture of Fire Hall project

A Town of Osoyoos effort Thursday to provide information about a proposed Fire Hall was a big success, with more than 60 residents showing up at a facility open house and community meeting.
“I was pleased with the turnout for these events,” said Osoyoos Mayor Stu Wells. “Osoyoos residents are known for doing their due diligence and are keenly interested in this project.”
Thursday morning and afternoon, the Osoyoos Volunteer Fire Department opened its doors to residents, allowing an up-close and personal look at the facility and equipment the community’s dedicated firefighters use to keep Osoyoos safe.
The department wanted residents to see first-hand the tight quarters in which firefighters work.
The Town then hosted a community discussion at the Sonora Centre to provide more information on the proposed new Fire Hall.
After explaining the need for a new facility to replace an aging, ailing Fire Hall downtown, administrators and fire department officers fielded questions to provide for an open, free-ranging discussion on the need, cost and sustainability of the new Fire Hall.
“I believe most of those attending went home  with their questions answered,” said Mayor Wells.
The open house and information session are part of the Town’s effort to ensure a transparent, information-rich discussion as it embarks on an Alternative Approval Process to gain elector assent for funding construction of the new Fire Hall.
The proposed Fire Hall, which would be located on 74 Avenue near Hwy. 97, has a total building cost of about $6.6 million.
