The Village would like to remind residents that under the Village’s Building Bylaws - Bylaw #633 and Amendment Bylaw #661, building permits are required for home and out-building structural related repairs, renovations, additions and roofing replacements. If you are not sure if your work project requires a permit, please contact the Village office at 250-367-7234 or the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), Building Department at: 250-368-0222.
The Village has awarded Marwest Industries the construction contract for the Waste Water Treatment Plant Rehabilitation Project.
TRUE Consulting will be providing the design and engineering services. Ground breaking will commence in late September/early October with the project completion expected in February 2018. Residents are advised that some noise may result from the work which will include significant use of heavy earth moving equipment. Work is expected to be completed weekdays during daylight hours only.
The Village will be providing an update on the Water Reservoir Rehabilitation Project once all details are finalized.
Small Capital Projects Update: Work continues with several of the drainage projects including drainage improvements on 1st St. and 8th Ave. and on the 500 block of 11th Ave. Drainage improvement projects have now been completed on the 9th St. Cul de sac, and the 600 block of the 11th Avenue alleyway. The Montrose Hall and Montrose Park external painting project is now complete. The community hall, picnic shelter and dugouts all had their external metal and wood surfaces cleaned up and painted. The Village will be continuing with its fire hydrant replacement program with two hydrants looking at being upgraded this fall.
Montrose Park has great amenities for all ages including the new skateboard/all wheel park, the spray park, childrens' play structures, the sports court and the gazebo/picnic area. Viewmont and Frontier Parks also feature childrens' play structures and picnic areas.
Looking for some activity to do in the Village? Check out the Antennae Trail. Great views/healthy hike.
The Village will be getting a new Electric Vehicle Charging station. The station will allow visitors to charge their vehicle and get a good look at the community and its amenities. The station will be located at the Village Office, and is being installed by the Accelerate Kootenay Program.
Yard waste pick-up is every third Thursday of the month from April to October. Pick-up begins at 7:30am. Yard waste must be in a clear plastic bag, be properly secured and have a maximum weight limit of 40 pounds. The Village will be providing residential yard waste pick-up on September 28th and October 26th (includes branch pick-up).
A reminder to local residents that dumping garden and yard waste on Village property is illegal. It not only creates a bear attractant which results in safety issues to local residents, but it also greatly contributes to stability and drainage issues on the slope banks, the repair of which costs all local taxpayers. Please ensure that yard and garden waste is properly disposed of, ripened fruit is picked and composts are made bear proof.
