Fernie residents will have to find somewhere else to dump their septic tanks for a little while longer, with delays in the city’s sani-dump project.
According to city staff, the project is being delayed and re-tendered after the best bid came in at 130 per cent of the projected budget.
The sani-dump replacement was combined with a larger grant-funded project to revitalize a number of parking areas around Fernie.
“Staff have adjusted scopes of work and are re-tendering the projects. We will update Council and the community as soon as we can confirm a timeline for it’s replacement,” said city officials.
In the meantime, other sani-dump services are listed below.
