Encouraging economic numbers for Castlegar.
Councillor Kevin Chernoff -whose portfolio includes planning and development- says business licence numbers are at 671 so far this year. That’s more than the same time last year.
He says the Chamber of Commerce has also noticed a positive trend.
Chernoff says at a time when many communities in BC are struggling -especially if they’re not part of the energy sector – Castlegar is doing well.
