Revision to cemetery bylaw

Summerland’s cemetery bylaw will undergo a few wording changes.

A paragraph will be added, mentioning that burials may not be scheduled for Easter Sunday, V.E. Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Remembrance Day or Christmas Day.

In addition, the words, “Engineering and Public Works” will be replaced with “Works and Utilities.”

Healthy living request endorsed

Council endorsed a letter of understanding between the Okanagan-Similkameen Healthy Living Society and the Interior Health Authority, City of Penticton, Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, Penticton Indian Band and School District 67.

The initiative has a focus on children, youth and high risk populations.
