The Federal Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia have advised the Village of Montrose that it has been successful in its recent application for funding for the Village's Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project. The project includes the rehabilitation of the Villages' rapid infiltration basins and upgrades to the associated wastewater drainage system. Read the full announcement.
The Beaver Valley Recreation Committee and the City of Trail have come to terms on a new Recreation Agreement. The new agreement calls for a five-year term at the flat rate of $125,000/yr, effective November 1st. The residents of Montrose and the Beaver Valley can now be assured they can continue to enjoy the excellent recreational facilities, programs and services in both the City of Trail and the Beaver Valley over the next several years, at a reasonable cost.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has committed to help improve Highway 3B Crosswalk safety in the Village in 2016.
This includes changing out the existing signs at three of the four cross walk locations, repainting the zebra crosswalks this spring and uprating some existing highway corridor lighting to LED's for better overall visibility along the highway corridor.
The Village will also be upgrading the remaining highway corridor lights to LED's to ensure consistent lighting is present in this section of the Village. As part of the program, the Ministry has requested that the Village consider removing the 6th Street crossing. The Village feels that this crossing may be redundant and thus, has given detailed consideration to this proposal.
Anyone who would like additional information on this is asked to contact the Village Office.
Good news! The Village recently installed a new Interac machine at the Office to allow residents to complete a wider range of financial transaction options for Village services in a more convenient way.
Please note that at this time, our set up only allows for debit transactions (bank cards) and not for credit cards.
Montrose Recreation is planning a bigger and expanded Montrose Family Fun Day Event next year! We want to make this anniversary a big one and have slightly increased the budget - and we are trying to get as many people involved as we can! As these events depend on volunteers to make them successful, anyone that wants to help can get information from the Village Office.
Also, if you know of anyone that used to live in Montrose, go to school here, or grew up here - please let them know about this event and invite them home... a home coming... so to speak. The main event will be on Saturday June 11, with other events tentatively happening on both Thursday (June 9) and Friday (June 10) nights.
Let's make the 60th year the best one yet!
