Sunnybrae Hall gets much-needed retrofit

Gas tax funding will help Sunnybrae Community Hall become more energy efficient and reduce its carbon footprint.

At the July 17 board meeting in Salmon Arm, Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors approved $30,625 from the Electoral Area C South Shuswap Community Works Fund.

The renovation will include replacing the existing aged and inefficient furnace, air conditioning unit, hot water heater and window coverings.

Area C director Paul Demenok brought Sunnybrae Community Association president Sharda Murray-Kieken’s June 27 written request to the board for approval, which was unanimous.

The balance of the Area C gas tax fund is $810,000 after 2014 approved commitments. An additional $287,000 allotment is expected to be received from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities this year.

Funds must be used in accordance with the 2014-2024 Community Works Fund Agreement between UBCM and the regional district.
