Osoyoos calls on residents to collect lost, missing, stolen bikes before they are donated

The town has collected a number of bikes over recent years

The Town of Osoyoos is calling on residents to come and claim their lost or stolen bikes before they are donated.

The town has collected a number of bikes over the last few years, and they are hoping to reconnect them to their owners.

To claim them, the town requires a letter addressed to the town’s bylaw department that contains the bike’s description including colour, size, make and serial number if possible. The letter must also have contact information in order for bylaw to respond.

The letters can be delivered in person, mailed, faxed or sent via email to the bylaw department at the Town of Osoyoos, Box 3010, 8707 Main Street Osoyoos V0H 1V0.

Bylaw will contact residents to coordinate a meeting if the description matches one of the bikes in the town’s possession.

Any bikes must be claimed before Jan. 31, 2022, after which the remaining bikes will be either donated to a charitable organization or otherwise disposed of.
