District asks BC Hydro to get gardening

Invermere District council is calling on the company to do more work at its crossroads construction site.

While BC Hydro’s $15.3 million upgrade of its Athalmer substation is “essentially complete” according to the utility, Invermere District council is calling on the company to do more work at the crossroads site.

At its most recent meeting, council agreed to send a letter to the company, asking it to do landscaping work around the renovated and expanded substation.

“We’d like that to happen as soon as possible,” said mayor Gerry Taft. “I hope they don’t think they’re finished.”

The call comes after council received a letter from BC Hydro making it aware of the project’s completion.

“It does not look finished,” councillor Paul Denchuk added. “We’re trying to beautify the entrance to town. They are not.”
