The Cariboo Regional District board allocated $88,500 from its annual allotment of Community Works funds towards infrastructure upgrades related to the Red Bluff Sewer.
The Red Bluff sewer system discharges pre-treated sewage to Cariboo Pulp and Paper (CPP) for final treatment and disposal and CPP is relining a portion of the effluent line that runs from the final lagoon to the Fraser River.
The CRD is responsible for 1.3 per cent of the costs CPP sewer treatment infrastructure upgrades, because the Red Bluff sewer contributes 1.3 per cent of the total flow.
The board will also be entering an agreement with the Alexandria Community Hall Society and contributing $20,000 for energy efficiency upgrades at the hall. The Society plans to update their electrical system and convert to LED lighting.
McLeese Lake hall land use changes
The board approved a request from the McLeese Lake Recreation Commission Society to amend the land title covenant for the McLeese Lake recreation property.
The covenant currently limits the use of the property to public recreation only; it will now be changed to “community use.”
This wording change supports the Society’s desire to enter into an agreement with the McLeese Lake Volunteer Fire Department Society to allow them to use a portion of the property for construction and operation of a fire hall.

The board approved a grant totaling $1,000 for the Tyee Lake Community Association towards their AGM, fundraising event and community picnic.
The funding comes from the Electoral Area D grants for assistance fund.
