The electors of the City of Enderby have approved borrowing for Cliff Avenue according to preliminary results. 195 elector responses indicated opposition to proceeding with the borrowing bylaw. 238 electors (determined to be 10% of eligible electors) were required in order to prevent the borrowing from proceeding.
“I am pleased that the borrowing may proceed as planned,” said Enderby Mayor Greg McCune. “As a Council, we selected a funding strategy for Cliff Avenue that balanced many priorities, including keeping taxes as low as possible. I am excited that we are able to do a project of this magnitude while keeping our overall tax increase to 0.69% for 2016, which is among the lowest increases in the province.”
