Judge Rules Fire Protection Services To Continue

Residents of the CSRD's Area B will remain under Revelstoke's Fire Services protection for a while longer.

The CSRD and City of Revelstoke have been unable to negotiate a new agreement on the issue, and last Friday saw a judge rule that the City would need to continue providing services for another several months.

Mayor Mark McKee has more "The judge is requiring us to continue to provide fire service until - I believe it's June 1st, 2018."

The Mayor says he's still waiting to read the written statement from the judge on this matter.

He says he's still hopeful that the City and CSRD can come to an agreement that includes additional equipment, and adequate safety measures for fire staff.
