Fernie Council Accepts Accepts Elector’s Approval for Boundary Extension – West Fernie Project Moves Forward

At its October 14, 2014 meeting, City of Fernie Council accepted their electors’ approval to move forward with a request to the Ministry to extend City boundaries to include the West Fernie area.  City staff are now preparing the necessary documents to forward to the Ministry.

In light of the City’s decision, RDEK staff are working on the process to engage an engineer to complete the design and construction management for the first phase of the West Fernie project.

We expect to award the engineering contract in the early part of 2015 and construction is expected to begin in 2016.
