Castlegar holds off on road grant support for KBRH

This was Castlegar council’s decision this week as the Silver City is looking at surrounding communities to back their grant request.

McIntosh notes that the West Kootenay Hospital board is meeting next week for the first time after the November election and a lot will be discussed.
