North Thompson Co-Terminus Fire Protection Feasibility Study presented to District of Barriere

Council members received the North Thompson Co-Terminus Fire Protection Feasibility Study

The January 21, District of Barriere Council meeting was fairly short, with only a few items of business to be discussed.

Council members received the North Thompson Co-Terminus Fire Protection Feasibility Study, which has now been completed.  The study covered the seven fire departments who provide fire protection services for specified areas within the geographic area: Blackpool, Vavenby, Barriere, Clearwater, McLure, Little Fort, and Chu Chua.  All the Fire Chiefs have agreed that implementation of the Co-Terminus plan recommendations is a good idea.  However, the final decision to proceed will be dependent on the TNRD’s cost benefit analysis which is currently underway.

Council members also passed a motion to support application ALR-13-01, to remove part of Lot 2, DL 55 and 56, KDYD, Plan KAP66586 PID 024-763-845 from the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), while adding the northeasterly corner of the same parcel into the ALR.


The next District of Barriere Council meeting will be on February 4, at 7 p.m.
