Printable - 2012 Alternate Approval Process Form

Pursuant to the Community Charter, the Council of the Town of Osoyoos is proposing to seek the assent of the electors in the Town of Osoyoos by means of Alternative Approval Process. The question before the electors is whether they are opposed to the borrowing of $287,250 for the Road Reconstruction of Cottonwood Drive from Highway 3 to remainder of Lot 1 Plan 46437 for a 20 year period.

The cost of the reconstruction project is $383,000 with 25% funding coming from development cost charges and the balance of $287,250 through long term borrowing. This loan authorization bylaw will cost an additional $4.75 per average single family residence in taxes.
