Traffic enforcement stepped up for West Kelowna

West Kelowna will get extra police traffic enforcement at no extra charge. During 2011 budget proceedings, council passed a motion to take on 150 hours of traffic services shifts by an RCMP reservist. Chief financial officer Jim Zaffino said it had been determined the officer could be funded without increasing taxes on the Westside.

Due to sick leave accrued among the 21 members of the Westside detachment, the district is able to fund the reservist from the portion of the RCMP operating budget that is not being used.

“I feel comfortable that we can fund the $48,600 without having any risk to us.”
