The City of Merritt is planning to discuss a recently completed flood assessment for the Nicola River with residents.
A Committee of the Whole (C.O.W.) meeting will take place in the coming months to go over the document commissioned by the city in June that examined the impacts of flooding at 13 sites along the Nicola River.
The motion to do so was made by Mayor Linda Brown.
"It was meant to look at doing a Committee of the Whole meeting, with participation from the public, in order to prioritize the needs of the flood community," said Brown.
More than $2-million would be needed to cover the recommendations made by Kerr Wood Leidel in the 2018 Nicola River Assessment.
