Highways meeting next week

  • Oct. 25, 2004 6:00 a.m.

Islanders who want to know more about the Ministry of Highways’ plans to repair rip rap along the coast can get their questions answered at a meeting next week organized by the Tlell Standing Committee.
Senior highways staff – including Skeena district manager Don Ramsay from Terrace – will be on hand to answer questions, as will someone from the Victoria engineering firm working on the rip rap design.
Tlell committee member Jean Kalamarz said people are welcome to ask questions about any issue, not just the rip rap. However, highways staff have asked that questions and concerns be submitted in writing before the meeting. Ms Kalamarz said people can send their questions to the Tlell committee at Box 104, or email them to jkala@qcislands.net or medley@qcislands.net by Nov. 1.
The meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 9 at Cacilia’s B&B in Tlell, starting at 7:30 pm.
