Cariboo Regional District board highlights
Community Works funding approved
Community Works Funding was approved by the board for three projects including digital control (DDC) energy management systems for the ice plant at the Cariboo Memorial Complex (CMC) in Williams Lake, and the ice plant and other equipment at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre (SCRC) in 100 Mile House, as well as a lighting upgrade at the Cariboo Regional District Hangar at the South Cariboo Regional Airport at 108 Mile Ranch.
The cost for each project is estimated at $32,000 for each DDC energy management system upgrade and $8,000 for the lighting upgrade. Both DDC projects will also have added safety benefits for the facilities by increasing automated monitoring capabilities, which will activate alarms in case of a system failure.
Howie Chamberlin from the McLeese Lake Community Association presented the Board with an update about the McLeese Lake downtown core and Community Hall enhancement project.
