Help Inform Rural Health Care
A team of researchers from the Centre for Rural Health Research in the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia are working on a Rural Evidence Review project. The goal of the project is to work with rural citizens and communities to provide high quality, useful evidence for rural health care planning in British Columbia.
Help identify rural health services issues that matter to you by taking their survey (www.bit.ly/ruralevidencereview) or participating in a research interview. Contact the project coordinator for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bark Beetles in the Cariboo
Representatives from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, gave the Board of Directors a presentation on the various bark beetles in this region. They also provided an update on local responses to the bark beetle infestations throughout the region. For more information about bark beetle management in the province, see the Bark Beetle Management Guidebook. If you are interested in learning more about managing Douglas-fir beetles on your own property, here is a FLNRO reference guide.
Statement of Financial Information Released
The Board received the CRD’s 2018 Statement of Financial Information (SOFI) report and approved it for release to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. The SOFI report is a regulatory requirement for all Local Governments in British Columbia under the Financial Information Act. The Schedules and Audited Financial Statements are included on the May 24 Board agenda.
Big Lake Community Hall Project Funded
The Board approved that $15 000 be allocated from the 2019 Community Hall Improvements envelope of the Community Works Fund towards the drilling of a new well at the Big Lake Community Hall.
Maple Drive Streetlighting Feasibility Study
The CRD approved a request to support a feasibility study for streetlighting in the Maple Drive Corridor up to $7 500. Due to recent changes to traffic patterns and load restrictions, industrial traffic has been re-routed to Maple Drive. As Maple Drive does not have streetlighting there is some concern for the safety of the neighbourhood.
