CCRHD Funds West Chilcotin Health Project
The Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) Board agreed to provide the West Chilcotin Health Care Society (WCHCS) with a grant for $4,659.20, which will cover 40 per cent of the costs to purchase Point of Care Testing equipment for the health centre.
The CCRHD Directors also considered the Society’s request for funding towards the costs of initial planning requirements for a proposed new West Chilcotin Health Centre in Tatla Lake. The Board stated they would be happy to help with the funding once the project is approved by Interior Health.

Review of Wildfire Recommendations Continues
The CRD’s Emergency Preparedness Committee continues to meet regularly to review, prioritize and discuss the 2017 wildfire reports’ recommendations. They are also incorporating the recommendations from the CRD’s report following the 2014 Mount Polley incident.
Out of the recommendations reviewed to date, staff prepared a 2018 action priority list, which the CRD Board received today. This list is under Item 8.7.1 in the June 22 agenda.
Water Services Established for Benjamin Subdivision
The Regional District Directors adopted two bylaws enabling the establishment of the Benjamin Water Service. This new service will provide water services to a 44-home subdivision in the Red Bluff/Dragon Lake area, which is in Electoral Area A. Residents in the area voted favourably for the service’s establishment through a petition process in December 2017. It is anticipated the CRD will assume control of the water system as early as September 2018.
