The Cariboo Regional District, in conjunction with the Municipal elections in November, will be asking voters if they can increase the taxation required to maintain the current level of HandyDart service.
CRD Area A Director Ted Armstrong says the added cost will be around 7 dollars per 100 thousand worth of assessment.
He explains where the service goes to…
“Basically it’s Red Bluff, Dragon Lake, a ways out on West Fraser Road, Bouchie Lake, and a bit out towards Wells-Barkerville.”
Armstrong says the service started three years ago and they underestimated how often it would be used.
He says BC Transit funds 62 percent of the bill.
