DAY PASSES AND EVACUEE REGISTRATION
All evacuees whose referrals expire today, Friday September 5th or tomorrow Saturday September 6th, must go to the Parkinson Recreation Centre to have those referrals extended.
Day passes (temporary re-entry) for people in most areas under Evacuation Order (Gallagher's Canyon, Joe Rich, McCulloch Road, McCulloch Lake, and south west of the City of Kelowna boundary to Stewart Road West) are being issued today between 9:45 am and 2:00 pm. Proof of residency will be required at RCMP road checks. Only residents who have valid proof that they live in the area will be allowed re-entry today. As a safety precaution, residents on Evacuation Order from the June Springs area above the power-line are not being allowed re-entry at this time.
Agricultural Passes are being issued today between 9:30 am and 2:00 pm from the Ministry of Agriculture office, #200-1690 Powick Road. Passes will only be provided to farmers with proper identification. A driver's license will be required as well as vehicle license plate numbers and the number of passengers in each vehicle. Labourers must travel with the farm operator who obtains the pass. If producers have any questions they're asked to contact Wray McDonnell at 250-878-3636.
