The Penticton Indian Band and the City are bridging together in more way than one.
Penticton Indian Band Chief Jonathan Kruger shared information regarding the new bridge across the Okanagan River Channel and other current PIB matters at a Rotary lunch in Penticton on Wednesday.
First and foremost on his topic list was the bridge, which started construction this week.
“This is the front door for the big economic development. This is really going to showcase the city of Penticton,” he said.
Kruger was introduced to the crowd by Mayor Andrew Jakubeit, who emphasized that the city and Penticton Indian Band are working towards having prosperous communities working together.
