Mr. KING (Kootenay):

This vote is to

take care of unforeseen repairs that may be necessary during the year. The expenditure is usually kept down within the $1,000 mark. Occasionally the damage is such that it will require a larger expenditure. If it should involve over $5,000 the department would submit the matter to council.
