Pouce museum repairs won’t delay opening

Repairs needed for the Pouce museum were actually rather minor upon closer inspection according to Village staff, and the museum will open on time.

“There’s nothing over there that the building inspector observed from a safety standpoint that was bad to the point the facility couldn’t be opened on time,” CAO Chris Leggett said.

But Councillor Ken Drover says work still needs to be done, saying a safety inspection is needed — not just that of the integrity of the building. Electrical is another concern.

“We need an electrician, we need a carpenter,” he said. “It’s our building.”

Council motioned for staff to contact the BC Construction Safety Alliance.

Council and staff said more communication is needed from the museum board over the state of the building.

The museum is slated to open May 1, with a grand opening ceremony for the season on May 11.
