The city said Wednesday it will not be issuing any comments at this time regarding its fringe fire agreement with the Cariboo Regional District.
Council held an in-camera meeting about the agreement after its regular meeting Tuesday evening.
On Dec. 14 the city informed the CRD it has changed its mind about entering into a five-year term, a term it originally passed in a five-point city resolution on Oct. 23, that was shared in a memo to the CRD, dated Oct. 26.
Mayor Kerry Cook said Tuesday at council’s regular meeting the city wants to continue to offer the service.
“It’s an important issue and a lot of it is still in-camera so I am going to hold my comments back,” she said, adding communicating out is going to be important so that everyone has the “correct” information.
Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said the city cannot afford to provide city services at a loss, and with the new rate the city stands to lose approximately $166,000.
