Council members at the Oct. 3 District of Barriere Council meeting heard a petition from the North Thompson Fish and Game Club. Club representative Mel Schmidt requested a letter of support from Council, for the club’s plans to create a shooting range off Gorman Lake Road.
“The purpose of the range is to have a safe place to train the youth to shoot,” stated Schmidt.
Council members approved sending a letter of support.

The work of installing the meters will start as soon as possible, with completion anticipated by the end of May 2012.
