The Thompson Nicola Board of Directors meeting held on May 8 covered a number of items on the agenda

The Thompson Nicola Board of Directors meeting held on May 8 covered a number of items on the agenda, with highlights as follows:

On April 17, a recommendation was passed to increase tipping fees for disposal of household refuse and Demolition & Land Clearing (DLC) materials at TNRD solid-waste management facilities. Bylaw 2454, 2014, was adopted, which means that tipping fees in the TNRD will be comparable to surrounding regional districts, as required by the TNRD Solid Waste Management Plan.

The contract for the construction of the site works at the 70 Mile Eco-Depot was awarded to South Cariboo Ventures Ltd., for a maximum price of $500,258.63 plus applicable taxes.

The Dangerous Dog Control Service came into effect Jan. 1, 2014. In the first quarter of operating the service, approximately 15 calls were responded to either over the phone or in person. Three of the calls have resulted in investigations. One of the investigations has led to issuing a letter of warning.

A referendum is scheduled for June 21 to obtain the electors’ opinion on the establishment of the Spences Bridge Community Park and Recreation Financial Contribution Service Area.

The Lytton Legion building will be upgrading its heating system, insulation, and electrical and plumbing fixtures with money from the Federal Gas Tax Revenues – Community Works Fund from Electoral Area “I” (Blue Sky Country). The Gas Tax Funds will provide up to $35,000 for the various upgrades.

Three referrals were received from FrontCounter BC for Investigative Licenses enabling assessments, studies, and the collection of wind data to assess viability of wind power generation in numerous mountain sites in Electoral Areas “M” and “N”, with all sites being on Crown land.

Director Willow Macdonald received support from the Board to request a meeting with Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, to discuss the issue of closure of the CN gate at the Mud River Road crossing. The closure is affecting a number of user groups. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is responsible for Mud River Road.
