CCRD Directors Reg Moody

CCRD ‘Minutes in a Minute’ – 2015 strategic priorities identified, committee appointments made

The inaugural meeting for the newly elected Board was held on December 11, 2014.

The inaugural meeting for the newly elected Board was held on December 11, 2014. With a full agenda the new Board was quite busy, and hit the ground running. The Directors all took their Oath of Office, and appointed Reg Moody-Humchitt as Director of Area B. The Board re-elected Director Moody-Humchitt as Chair, and elected Director Sayers as Vice-Chair.

During the meeting the Board was presented the five 2015 Strategic Priorities. These priorities were approved at the October 2014 Board meeting and are the following: Solid Waste Management Plan: establish a joint public/technical advisory committee (future needs, issues and opportunities – budget and funding implications), complete stage one solid waste management review; and  progress Stage two (the development of short and long term options).

Shearwater Water System: seek out possible grant funding. Asset Management Planning: undertaking investigations and consultation on the replacement of the pool swimming tank at Centennial Pool (including budget and funding implications); and initiate the development of a comprehensive Asset Management Plan.

Official Community Plan: complete a comprehensive review and update of the Official Community Plan, Zoning and Subdivision Servicing Bylaws and Economic Development Plan: review, update or development of a new Economic Development Plan

Appointments were made to Committees, Commissions and Affiliated Organizations. A completed list of these appointments can be found on the CCRD’s website in the draft Minutes of the December 2014 Board Meeting.

The Preliminary Financial Plan first draft of the five-year financial plan was presented and received. This draft focused on 2015 only, with comparative figures for 2014. At this time the projected CCRD portion of the tax levy is estimated at 6.3 percent.

The board received the November 2014 Public Works Report which highlighted public works functions and services since the October Board meeting. This included a brief description about the inspection of the Thorsen Creek Recycling Depot conducted by Multi-Material BC in November. The inspector was very impressed with the operation and congratulated the recycling attendant on his organization and understanding of the material. The deposit containers being received at Thorsen Creek Recycling Depot are currently being donated to community organizations.

A reminder if your local community oriented non-profit organization is interested in receiving donations in this fashion please contact the CCRD or stop in at the Recycling Depot and talk with the Recycling Attendant.

The CCRD would like to express their gratitude to Croydon Lansdowne for volunteering his time and effort to ensure the pool was properly winterized. The Centennial Pool had a successful 2014 season, and is looking forward to 2015.

Next meeting of the CCRD Board will be held on February 12th and the public is welcome to attend.
