Peachland firefighters quickly brought a grass fire under control late Monday night.
Hwy. 97 will be closed for up to two hours on Tuesday, May 3 at Brent Road south of Peachland due to a rock slope stabilization project.
Traffic delays are expected over the next month on Hwy. 97 as crews conduct rock stabilization work on Drought Hill and near Brent Road.
Peachland will ask the MOTI to come up with safey improvements to Drought Hill that don’t require $1 million worth of street lights.
The idea of illuminating Drought Hill with street lights would cost the District of Peachland nearly $1 million.
