The Semiahmoo First Nation and the City of White Rock are pleased to announce that they have signed three utility service agreements, two for water supply and one for sewer services.
The City and the Nation meet regularly as Councils to discuss matters affecting both governments and items of mutual interest. As part of their ongoing dialogue on a variety of matters, the City and SFN have steadily moved toward the completion of servicing agreements.
The City promised in the 2021-2022 Council Strategic Priorities to continue to nurture its relationship for the benefit of both communities. Among the other items identified in the 2021-2022 Council Strategic Priorities are a memorandum of understanding for drainage and a communication protocol.
