DAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead says that a committee that has been formed to help get Rotary Lake reopened has met several times in their quest to get Northern Health to not rescind the man-made lakes status.

The committee was formed after a motion made by Dawson Creek councillor Paul Gevatkoff passed at a City Council meeting last month. The committee includes several members of council, along with members of the Mile Zero Park Society that runs the lake on behalf of the city, and Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier.

Bumstead says that since the committee was formed, it has met on several occasions, and plans to present its findings to Council at the meeting scheduled for August 21st. Meanwhile, Bumstead says that the Society is also seeking to get the spray park at the Rotary Lake grounds reopened after it was forced to close earlier this year. According to Bumstead, the spray park was open for at least one weekend, but was forced to close due to an issue with the park’s insurance. He added that the closure is not connected in any way with the closure of the lake.
