The City of Trail and the Village of Warfield are pleased to announce they have successfully negotiated and approved a 5.5-year (66 months) recreation and library services agreement that will take effect on July 1, 2015. Warfield will contribute $631,500 over the full term and the City will allocate 68% of the funding to Trail recreation and 32% towards library services.
“We are absolutely delighted to have reached a recreation and library agreement with the Village of Warfield,” says City of Trail Mayor, Mike Martin. “The agreement establishes long-term stability for both Warfield and Trail and provides Warfield residents with unrestricted access to the Trail recreation facilities. We would like to compliment and thank the Warfield negotiating team for the representation of their council and residents.”
The Recreation Negotiating Committees, Mayor Martin, Councillor Jolly, Councillor Santori and Chief Administrative Officer, David Perehudoff representing Trail and Mayor Pahl, Councillor Langman and Councillor Ferraro representing Warfield, have engaged in productive and positive discussions over the last several months as part of extending this critical service and funding partnership. Both parties recognized the importance and urgency of coming to terms on a new agreement with the current 18-month agreement set to expire at the end of June.
“On behalf of Council and the Village, I am pleased to be able to announce a long-term deal with the City of Trail for recreation and library services,” says Ted Pahl, Mayor of Warfield. “Many thanks to Councillor Langman and Ferraro for their hard work on this, and the team from the City of Trail for working with us on a deal that fits within our 5-year financial plan. Working together with the other communities in our region is something that Warfield Council is passionate about and we feel this partnership demonstrates our commitment to fostering stronger relationships.”
