Keremeos council briefs

Keremeos council briefs from the July 7 regular meeting

  • Jul. 10, 2014 1:00 p.m.

Ambassadors honorary reps

Keremeos Council approved a recommendation to designate Jamie Forner, Tea Hartfield and Selena Nugteren as honorary  representatives of the Village of Keremeos at the regular meeting of council on July 7. The three Keremeos Ambassadors were also presented with a certificate in appreciation of their work for the village.

Friends of the Library request

The Friends of the Library made a request to council to borrow six tables from Victory Hall for use at their annual book sale on Saturday, August 2. The request was approved.

Wrong Turn Tavern application

The Wrong Turn Tavern’s request for a patron participation endorsement on their liquor license was approved after the board received a petition and comments from the gallery. Mayor Bauer noted there were only two dissentling comments on the petition, after hearing from several in favour of the request from those in the gallery.

Parks bylaw amendment

Council adopted the amended parks regulation bylaw to allow activity at the village’s new dog park.

Village Chief Administrative Officer Laurie Taylor told council the village’s maintenance department was planning to install two decommissioned fire hydrants in the dog park for the canines to enjoy.

Community forests

The mayor reported the Lower Similkameen Community Forest harvested only 6,000 cubic metres last year. He said harvesting was limited this year as high elevation logging in the Ashnola required cable logging, with workers in short supply these days. He said 30,000 cubic metres are available this year.
