Comox Strathcona Waste Management may proceed with approval of a host community agreement that would pay $3 million to Cumberland.

Comox Strathcona Waste Management may proceed with approval of a host community agreement that would pay $3 million to the Village of Cumberland to upgrade the Cumberland/Bevan Road corridor.

CSWM would proceed if fewer than 10 per cent of electors in the Comox Valley and Strathcona regional districts submit forms opposing the agreement. If 10 per cent respond by May 31, the board cannot enter the agreement unless it obtains elector approval through a referendum.

The 20-year agreement would also pay Cumberland $300,000 per year to compensate for social, environmental and economic impact related to the Comox Valley waste management centre.

For more information and to obtain a copy of the form, visit www.cswm.ca/hostcommunity or drop by the CVRD office at 600 Comox Rd.
