Sicamous council will make its presence better known next year as they look into building a float to represent the district at events.

“It’s an initiative we’re looking at for 2017,” Mayor Terry Rysz said. “We don’t have money in the budget for it now.”

While the district does still attend events, such as the Interior Provincial Exhibition parade, the Salmon Arm Fall Fair and the Falkland Stampede, they do so in a fire truck. Rysz says having a dedicated float would allow for personalization in representing Sicamous in other communities, with some talk of even expanding what events the district would attend, such as the Calgary Stampede.

For now, while council works it into next year’s budget, they are discussing the design of the float and figuring out where to store it.
