Wording for public opinion vote on housing issue still being worked

 

A public opinion vote will be held Nov. 15 in conjunction with municipal elections to determine if Valley residents favour a local government-funded affordable housing/homelessness service.

The non-binding referendum question will gauge public willingness to fund a service up to six dollars per year for a property valued at $300,000. Up to $5,000 will be spent to develop information to describe the nature and extent of potential activities associated with such a service. Directors will consider specific wording for the question at the August COW meeting.
