Plans for a second ice sheet in Greater Vernon are generating considerable interest.

A total of 1,112 people voted in Wednesday’s advance poll, with residents being asked to borrow $13.2 million to twin Kal Tire Place.

Of the 1,112 ballots, 186 voted at the Regional District of North Okanagan office, 736 at Vernon city hall and 190 at the Coldstream municipal office.

The other advance poll will be Nov. 25 at the same three offices from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. while general referendum day is Nov. 28.

“Qualified electors within Vernon, Coldstream and Areas B and C may vote at any of the voting locations,” said Paddy Juniper, with RDNO.
