Prince George, B.C. – The City of Prince George has already decided to hold a referendum on possible borrowing funds for two projects, the replacement of the Four Season’s Pool, and the construction of a new Firehall #1. It has now started the information campaign to make the electorate aware of the issues and concerns.
“The City of Prince George rarely goes to referendum and never does so without a very good reason and the current state of the Four Seasons Leisure Pool, and both the state and location of Fire Hall #1 certainly provide excellent reasons,” says Kathleen Soltis, City Manager. “Through the summer and fall, the City will be providing residents with even more information so they can make fully informed choices when they mark their ballots this fall.”
The needs approval from the electorate to borrow an estimated $35 million dollars to replace the pool, and an estimated $15 million to replace Firehall #1.
The City has set up a webpage, and produced two videos explaining the issues with each of the facilities in need of replacing.
The referendum is to be held in late October of this year.
