RDMW looks at makeover

The RDMW offices will be applying for a grant to upgrade and improve their offices

The Regional District of Mount Waddington offices could be getting a makeover.

At their regular meeting June 16, Manager of Economic Development Pat English told the board that he is preparing an application for funding through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program to upgrade and expand the office.

The total cost of the project would be $302,220 with 50 per cent ($151,110) coming from the Regional District and the balance coming from the federal government – if the grant is approved, English said.

The office plans include a new basement area and 800-sq.ft. boardroom.

The old boardroom would be turned into offices and a second handicap-accessible washroom, said English.

The plan also calls for the installation of a new hot water heating system and converting fluorescent lighting to energy-efficient LED.

Council approved the boardroom expansion plan contingent on the grant being approved for the project.
