Dear Community Members
We appreciate our community coming together in this crisis. Our first priority is to provide the essential services to our community. Those are water, sewer, gas and roads currently.
Our Emergency Operation Centre was activated to a Level 1 last week and the Fire Chief and CAO are in daily contact with the Provincial ministries and Health Authorities and continue to follow the direction of these ministries at this time. They are following this hour by hour as it is changing quickly.
The link on the municipal website may not update on our system on a daily basis but it provides a link to provincial information that is updated daily by the appropriate agencies. This was done at the direction of the province to be sure that the proper and most up to date information was available for all citizens.
Our Health Clinic remains operational and is available as usual to provide services to its patients although telephone triage is our initial procedure. Tel # 778-644-0635
The mayor is also continuing to work with community members to put together a Sun Peaks Community Help Fund that will help those in need. We expect more information to be available on this initiative as soon as the group can provide the details.
We continue to be in contact with our provincial partners and follow their direction to help ensure the safety of everyone in Sun Peaks.
Please take care to self-isolate and avoid the spread of Covid 19.
