Container bylaw surfaces again at council meeting

Keremeos regular meeting of council briefs for Nov.7


Corporal Mike Gallagher of the Keremeos RCMP detachment made an appeal to the Village of Keremeos to declare Nov. 13 – 20 Restorative Justice Week, a request granted by village council at the regular meeting on Nov. 7.

A donation of $500 from village union staff to Victory Hall was presented by village staffer Christy Quaedvlieg, Unit Chair.The funds will be used to purchase a new refrigerator for Victory Hall.

Council received a letter from the RCMP updating them on contract negotiations currently underway between the police and the province.

A notice of motion by the mayor to allow shipping containers in the village’s R1and CR zones was defeated by council.

Village office hours will be on an emergency basis over the Christmas holidays, as council decided to close the village office between  4 p.m. on Dec. 24 and 8:30 a.m. on Jan.2. There will be no Christmas turkeys distributed to village staff this year upon recommendation by village CAO Laurie Taylor.

Council agreed to provide a donation in the amount of $470  to the South Similkameen Hamper Fund to assist them in offsetting their cost of the use of Victory Hall for their 2011 Hamper campaign.
