Administrative history

The District Municipality of Salmon Arm was incorporated in 1905. It used a ward system to allocate public funds. The first District Council included J. Harbell, R. Hobson, W. Baker, D. Sinclair, J. Johnson and H. Donnelly.

On March 12, 1912, the City of Salmon Arm was incorporated. R.K. Scales was the city's first mayor. Aldermen were: W.L. Gibbard, J.E. Lacey, F.C. Haydock, G.M. Warren and W.R. Greenaway. The District continued to be governed separately.

With the incorporation of the City, the District Municipality lost part of the territory it originally controlled and many taxpayers. The city boundaries did not include one complete ward of the district.

The municipality and city were reunited on September 1, 1970 with the governing council of the new District of Salmon Arm. The members of both councils completed their terms of office and a complete council was elected.
