  • The office is open and we are limiting customers to 1 (one) person in the office at a time, so that cleaning can occur between customers.

  • All meetings in the Municipal Office not directly related to Council have been cancelled until further notice. Council meetings are still being held via zoom.

Drivers Licence Services, BC Services Card or BCID – The office is open, we are limited to 1 (one) person in the office at a time and service is on a first come, first serve basis.

Bylaw Services – The office is open for your Bylaw issues and the hours for the Bylaw Officer are 9:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday to Friday.  

Flood Planning – The Village of Lumby would like to remind residents and property owners that protecting your property from flooding is your responsibility. Sand and sandbags are available in the parking lot across from the Curling Club at 2230 Shields Avenue, at the entrance to the Salmon Trail at 1910 Faulkner Avenue, as well as at the corner of Industrial Avenue and Hwy 6. These are not prefilled sandbags so please bring a shovel.  Due to rain events the creek levels can rise rapidly so please use extreme caution when near any of the creeks as fast moving water may cause erosion and instability on bank edges. The Salmon Trail by the new Bike Park is closed due to flooding, and the evacuation alert issued to residents living on the creek is still in effect. If you are concerned about trees or blockages in the creek, please call Fisheries and Oceans Canada at the Salmon Arm Regional Office at 1-250-804-7000 or the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Building Inspection – Currently all building inspection services are still available by calling and booking an appointment with the RDNO Building Inspector. Please call 250-550-3700 to book an appointment.

Planning Department – Currently all planning services are still available by calling and booking an appointment with the RDNO Planning staff. Please call 250-550-3700 to book an appointment.

Mayor Acton would like to thank everyone for your patience while dealing with this ever changing world. Please be kind, helpful and courteous with everyone still working to keep things functioning.  Stay safe, keep your distance, wash your hands and stay home if you are sick.
