We have been waiting for information from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development regarding the restructure of West Fernie and the level of assistance the Province may be willing to provide the City of Fernie to help reduce the immediate impact to the City should West Fernie become part of the City.
We have received notification from the Minister that she has approved the maximum per capita restructure assistance available. The City of Fernie will discuss the restructure assistance offer at an upcoming Council meeting.
The RDEK hopes to meet with the residents and property owners of West Fernie in early June to discuss the West Fernie Servicing & Restructure Project.
We will post the meeting time, date and location as soon as it is all confirmed.
