During recent Cariboo Regional District board meetings, the directors endorsed the re-submission of the Strategic Engagement Agreements resolution to the 2012 Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention, and identified additional resolution topics.

The additional resolutions include the discontinuance of funding for the Community Access Program (CAP), awareness and recognition of work-place fatalities, and tourism resort taxation levels.

The CRD will also take several resolutions which were endorsed during the 2012 North Central Local Government Association convention in May.

Resolution topics include fencing adjacent to highways; fencing and agricultural interfaces; the protection of potable water; the release of dangerous offenders, and noxious weeds on range lands.

The UBCM convention will be held this fall in Victoria, Monday September 24 to 28.

Special projects funds authorized

 

The CRD board authorized the allocation of special projects funds from electoral areas B, F and H for various projects throughout the region.

Up to $800 of Electoral Area B Special Initiative Funds will be used for pumping of Milburn Lake and Bouchie Lake outhouses and cleaning supplies for the facilities.

The board also approved up to $2,000 for the Arts on the Fly Music Festival. In Electoral Area H, up to $550 was approved for two signage projects including directional signs and five bulletin boards at Gateway, Buffalo Creek, Mahood Lake, Forest Grove and Hawkins Lake.

 

CRD supports Child Development Centre Association application

 

A letter of support will be provided to the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre Association for its application of $30,000 to the Northern Development Initiative Trust.

If approved, the funding will be used for renovations and expansion of the Child Development Centre in Williams Lake.

 

CRD supports Farm Credit Canada applications

 

The CRD will provide letters of support to the both the Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department Association (WVFDA) and the Alexis Creek Community Club for their funding applications to the Farm Credit Canada Program.

The WVFDA is applying for $1,000 to purchase equipment for the Wildwood disc golf course.

The CRD has also supported this project in a previous meeting by authorizing $1,000 from the Area D economic development budget.

The Alexis Creek Community Club will also submit an application to the Farm Credit Canada Program to obtain funds to begin renovations at the Alexis Creek Community Hall.
