Good morning, Kelowna. Snow has blanketed the valley and we hope you stay safe as you embark on your commutes. Before that, however, here are a few items you may want to know about.
1.) Environment Canada is calling for a cold and grey morning, with an appearance of the sun as time wears on. The temperature is expected to remain a biting -7 C.
2.) Did you watch the game? If not, you may not have heard the Rockets lost last night to the Lethbridge Hurricanes. It ended a four-game winning streak.
3.) Taxes. Expect to hear a lot about them this week because the city is set to present its budget on Thursday and there’s a 4.4 per cent increase expected.
4.) How do you envision this city? The Imagine Kelowna project has completed the first phase of public pulse-taking and in a year we should all get some insights into this city’s future.
