Penticton city council to review beach concession licenses Tuesday

There are currently four operational beach concession buildings in the city

Penticton city council will receive a proposal on Tuesday (Feb. 15) from a local land administrator after licenses for two out of the four operational beach concession buildings in Penticton expired.

Skaha Main Concession, Skaha East Concession, Sudbury Beach Concession and Peach Concession will be the properties in question at council’s upcoming meeting, with the operational licenses for the latter two buildings expiring in September of 2021 and January of 2022, respectively.

Members of council will be asked to seek operators for the purpose of food concession and renew current agreements for the three-year period of May 1, 2022, to April 30, 2025.

Tickleberry’s ice cream shop is the most recent operator of the concessions at Sudbury Beach and Skaha East. The Okanagan-based shop’s license at Skaha East expires on April 30.

Skaha Main Concession, meanwhile, has one more season with its current operator, according to the city. As a result, the upcoming proposal states the building’s operational license will be reviewed at another time.

The city’s council meeting is set to start at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. Amid COVID-19 concerns, the gathering will be conducted through an online format. People interested in following along with the meeting virtually are asked to visit penticton.ca.
