Gary Thielmann

I have served as a village councillor for the past three years and have gained a lot of knowledge about village governance. I will stand for the position of councillor once again this fall.

Some of the issues that I feel the village must move forward on are:

– Maintaining a fiscal prudent budget.

– Finishing the Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP).

– Working with the Keremeos Irrigation District  (KID) to ensure a safe and stable supply of water.

– Working with the Similkameen Valley Planning Society (SVPS) to finish the study of the Similkameen Valley watershed.

– Continuing  to make Keremeos a seniors friendly community.

– Encouraging business and economic growth within the village.

– Supporting the health services within the village.

-Encouraging and supporting the many services and volunteer organizations in and around the village.

– Maintaining the library service that we enjoy as part of the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) system.
