The electoral area services committee approved Monday a recommendation for third reading to establish a bylaw for fire protection services at Mount Washington.
Pending approval by the regional district board, a service would be established by way of a referendum, proposed for Sept. 17. Directors also approved a recommendation to borrow $415,000 to construct a fire protection facility.
Last year in February, a late night fire destroyed three cabins on Mount Washington. They were left to burn due to the lack of fire protection.
