“We’re calling on you, our residents and the South Okanagan business community, to tell us how you’ve been affected. The results will help guide critical City Council decisions as we move ahead with relief and recovery measures,” said Penticton Mayor, John Vassilaki.

There are two separate surveys, one for residents and another for South Okanagan businesses. Penticton business owners can fill out one or both.

To complete survey go to www.shapeyourcitypenticton.ca or call the City’s call centre at 250-490-2345 to submit responses over the phone. The call centre is open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The window to complete the surveys will remain open until midnight April 16, due to the ‘urgency’.

“With so many people at home, all looking for new things to do, there’s never been a better occasion to complete a five minute survey on the future of our city,” said Vassilaki.
