The RDOS is currently fleshing out 1+3 alternatives for the West Bench water system upgrade (the status quo is not reallly an option since it does not meet IHA's standards; it is included only to provide a baseline against which to evaluate the cost of the other alternatives). The fourth option (not included in the July 22nd newsletter to residents) is the extraterritorial arrangement with the City of Penticton that failed to attract sufficient support in the 2010 referendum. I have asked RDOS staff to include it for completeness.
|Update 29 July, 2011: When will you receive the survey? Please see the comment below|
We will be asking West Bench residents to evaluate the alternatives by completing a short survey following the July 28th open house. The paper survey will be sent out to all West Bench residents via unaddressed bulk mail. However, we are giving all West Bench residents (plus non-West Bench residents who may have a stake in the evolution of the West Bench system) the opportunity to complete the survey online instead of on paper. Given the mailing and talllying costs of a paper survey, we would naturally prefer that as many people as possible use the online version.
To add you to our online survey list we need:
- A verified email address
- Indication of your "status" as a West Bench ratepayer
- The correct answer to an easy local knowledge trivia question. This is to help insure you are a legitimate particpant, not a Russian teenage hacker or a robot or whatever.
