Equipment will remain in Sicamous regardless of outcome for elementary school.

Council approved $10,000 for new playground equipment at Parkview Elementary School.

The school’s Parent Advisory Council made a request for funding in a March 31 letter to mayor and council.

The request required a council resolution because it was an unbudgeted expenditure. But Rysz says he and council were happy to ante up the money, particularly since the PAC has already raised $40,000 and because the playground will benefit the whole community.

As well, he said, even if the school is slated for closure, the equipment will remain in Sicamous.
