Letter: Federal government better be helping with next phase of Penticton bike lane

Council wants to pay for next phase costs of $4.7 million in 2022 budget

To Mayor & Council:

The first phase of the Lake to Lake Bike Lane had a total budget of $2.4 million with a contingent requirement of receiving $1 million or (41.6 per cent) from senior government for the project to move forward. The result was the city received the required funds from senior government.

As I understand council is putting the next phase of the bike lane forward in the 2022 budget total of $4.7 million. I trust council will be putting in place a similar contingent requirement for this phase at the same 41.6% or $1.9 million from senior government for the project to move forward.
