B.V. to talk boundary expansion with minister

Fruitvale and Montrose mayors will be heading to Vancouver in December to make sure BV voices are heard.

Beaver Valley leaders are planning a trip to the coast to meet with Peter Fassbender, the new Minister of Community, Sports and Cultural Development.

“We want to make sure we’re heard for the Beaver Valley” on Trail’s boundary expansion proposal, explained Fruitvale Mayor Patricia Cecchini at last week’s regular council meeting.

She and Montrose Mayor Joe Danchuk and Area A director Ali Grieve will be flying to Vancouver in early December to meet Fassbender, who’s getting up to date on the file that proposes expanding Trail’s boundary into Teck-owned land in Area A.
