No news yet on whether Kamloops will get federal funding assistance for a universal water metering program. It was initally expected this summer.
If this funding comes through, then a universal metering program is a done deal. If not, then as Mayor Peter Milobar has said, "its back to the drawing board".
Have heard that some senior city staff think their might be an announcement at the Annual BC Municipal (UBCM) convention at the end of this month. The possibility of a fall federal election might also see a campaign style announcement photo op somewhere in town. But, then again, maybe not - given how polarizing the water meter issue is.
