2013. The Okanagan Way.

Posted on Thursday, January 17, 2013 09:00 PM

The New Year has just begun and your local government is already working hard to make it even better than the one that just ended. As we are beginning to prepare our Annual Report, which will be ready in the spring, and as we are preparing our final budget, I cannot help but think of the many accomplishments we had in 2012. Lodge Road repaving and traffic improvements, the renaming of the Highway 97 stretch along Wood Lake to Pelmewash Parkway, the progress of the Kalamalka Lake Water project to...

A Day in the Life of a Snowplow Operator

Posted on Thursday, December 20, 2012 09:00 PM

When winter hits the Okanagan, men and women in many communities are ready to jump into their snowplows and sanding trucks day or night to keep our many kilometers of roadways clear and open to traffic.

Lodge Road is an example and as I am writing this article, Lake Country staff members are working on an even safer path for pedestrians reaching from the Copper Hill subdivision down to Lodge, especially...

One Year with the New Council

Posted on Thursday, November 15, 2012 09:00 PM

The most recent local government election was held last year on the third Saturday of November so pretty soon we will celebrate the new Council's one year in office. Four out of six councillors are new and three of them come from three wards. Our system is unique in British Columbia but it is reflective of the varied diversity that we enjoy in Lake Country. By the same token, though, our Community, Council and Staff are also proud of the fact that Lake Country is one community, one municipality...
