The mayor of Nelson is brushing off the lack of enough support from Kootenay Boundary governments on the hospital laundry issue.

She’ll meet the Health Minister at September’s Union of BC Municipalities Convention (UBCM) to express concerns about the potential 17 full-time job losses.
Talks with IH are ongoing and she says it’s encouraging that no decision on moving the laundry has yet been made.
Kozak says Nelson failed to get enough votes at the regional government convention because of rules around late resolutions.
