The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) will officially reopen its regional office in Creston Monday, July 6, and its Nakusp office on Wednesday, July 8.

Office hours for Creston will be 8:30 a.m. TO 1 p.m. Monday through Friday,  and Nakusp will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and Friday until further notice.

Each office will have posted entry guidelines including special sanitization and physical distancing protocols guided by WorkSafe BC to help protect RDCK staff and all members of the public.

There will be maximum occupancy limits in the office, so the public is asked to adhere to all policies and procedures which may include waiting your turn outside while practicing physical distancing.

Residents are encouraged to contact RDCK staff ahead of time by phone or email first to see if they can be helped remotely and, if not, to make an appointment with staff.

“We are happy to welcome the public back to our offices in Creston and Nakusp,” said Sangita Sudan, RDCK General Manager of Development Services. “We apologize for any short-term inconvenience this may of caused by not opening at the same time as our head office in Nelson, but it was imperative to take the necessary time to ensure safety protocols are in place for both our staff and the public. We remind people to be patient as they follow the new guidelines which are for the health and safety of everyone.”

The RDCK’s head office in Nelson reopened to the public on June 22.
