The Cariboo Regional District received a request from the West Chilcotin Search and Rescue Association (WCSAR)for a permanent source of funding through regional district taxation. A total of up to $3,000 in feasibility funds will be allocated to explore this opportunity for Electoral Area J residents.
Health-care meetings requested
The Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) will request the North Central Local Government Association to arrange dedicated health-care meetings with both the Interior and Northern Health Authorities. The focus of the meetings will be the recruitment and retention of medical professionals to the region among other health-care issues. The CCRHD will also request meetings with Interior and Northern Health to discuss the opportunities for the realignment of the current health authority boundaries in the region.
First Nations consultation funding sought
The Cariboo Regional District will resubmit a resolution originally proposed to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) in 2009. The resolution dealt specifically with funding for First Nations consultation, as the process can be expensive and time consuming for both First Nations and local governments. If successful, this funding would be used to help offset costs of this consultation process.
Area F special projects authorized
The Cariboo Regional District authorized up to $800 from the Area F Special Initiative Fund to support the Cedar Point Park 50th Anniversary. The funds will be used to purchase banners that hang for the entire season commemorating the milestone. Anniversary celebrations will be held on July 21 at the park.
