West Bench, Faulder, Okanagan Lake West
Just a clarification in relation to the following statement above:
In the case of the Faulder water system, costs actually increased significantly (due to roughly $40K in consultant costs from last year). Naturally, these costs are assigned to residents of the service area only, although they show up in aggregate totals for Area F.
Although costs for a project in a particular service area are typically charged to residents of that service area, the situation was a bit different for the Faulder water study. The previous Area F Director, Ron Perrie, managed to acquire some planning grants and covered the balance with revenue from the gas tax. So although the $40K showed up in budget for the Faulder water system, users of this system did not actually have to pay for the engineering study.
