This week, Merritt City Councillor Tony Luck made a notice motion regarding water.
“In light of some of the things we’ve heard this evening, and few other concerns around the community, I would like to move that a long-term water supply study, including the use of Nicola Lake as a supply source, be undertaken by the staff,” said Luck.
As per city procedure, the motion will return at the next council meeting for a full debate and vote.
The topic of water has been getting extra attention lately at Council meetings with members of the public raising various concerns at virtually every meeting, including the most recent one where the idea of a water committee was again broached by Mr. Craig Gray.
