MEDIA RELEASE: CITY OF GRAND FORKS PLANS AND PREPARES IN LIGHT OF THE EVACUATION ALERT

As residents of parts of Christina Lake and the City of Grand Forks prepare to leave the area in the case of an evacuation order, so too does the Public Works department and School District 51 bus yard. Members of the public may have noticed that school district buses have been moved to Hutton Elementary School and City of Grand Forks trucks and some equipment have been moved to James Donaldson Park.

The move is due to the evacuation alert that was initiated on Wednesday August 26th by the RDKB EOC for parts of the Grand Forks and Christina Lake areas. Both the School District bus yard and the City’s Public Works building are located in the evacuation alert areas. The move is a precautionary measure only.
