The public is invited to a special meeting hosted by the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) on Wednesday, Feb. 7 when its Five-Year Financial Plan will be discussed.

“Unlike a municipality that has one boundary and one set of taxpayers, different areas of the RDEK require different services which makes our full financial plan quite complex,” explains RDEK board chair Rob Gay. He noted that a separate meeting day to focus only on the financial plan is beneficial to the board and the public.

The meeting will take place in the RDEK board room at 19 24 Ave. south in Cranbrook. The time will be posted on February 2. The meeting will also be live-streamed via Zoom and the Zoom link will be posted the evening of February 6.

The RDEK’s committee and board meetings will follow on Thursday, Feb. 8 and Friday, Feb. 9, respectively.
