RDEK Electoral Areas A and G to Hold Community Meetings

The Regional District of East Kootenay will be holding community meetings in both Electoral Areas A and G later this month.

“With two of our longtime Area Directors retiring from office this fall, these meetings will be a final opportunity for them to meet with their constituents and provide both an overview of the accomplishments during their tenures and an update on current projects of note,” says RDEK Communications Manager, Loree Duczek. “The community meetings will also feature presentations on our regional firefighter recruitment drive, the FireSmart Program, and more.” In addition, the Electoral Area A meeting will include a presentation on Angel Flight East Kootenay.

Both Electoral Area A Director, Mike Sosnowski and Electoral Area G Director, Gerry Wilkie announced that they would not be running for re-election this year. Sosnowski has served Area A for the past 17 years and Wilkie in Area G, for the past 14.

The Area G community meeting will be held at the Edgewater Community Hall on September 26 at 7pm, while the Area A meeting will get underway at 7pm on September 28 at the Hosmer Community Hall.

All are invited to attend. For more information, visit www.rdek.bc.ca
