TAYLOR, B.C. – The District of Taylor has released the Year End Report for 2016.

  • Decks – 5
  • Industrial – 1
  • Move existing Man. Home/Building – 1
  • Repairs/Renovations – 1

Another area that saw quite a large decline was the number of campers at Peace Island Park. Staff contribute the slumping numbers in 2016 due to the amount of wet days the region experienced in the spring and summer months.
