City awards carbon reduction contract

| Sourced From Bclocalnews |

Penticton council voted 5-1 Monday to contract an environmental-sustainability company to assist the city in its efforts to reduce and eventually eliminate carbon emissions.

Stantec Consulting Ltd. was selected through a joint search co-ordinated by the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen for civic governments in the area to help each assess their energy consumption and create a plan that will achieve carbon neutrality by 2012 as signatories to the Climate Action Charter.

Pentictons contract with Stantec will cost up to $32,000 (plus taxes) this year, money well spent according to Coun. Garry Litke who sits on both the citys and the regional districts climate action charter compliance committees.
