CRD Directors Sworn into Office

Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018, was the inaugural meeting for the Cariboo Regional District Board of Directors elected for the 2019-2022 term. The Directors affirmed their oath of office and started their orientation process. Friday, Nov. 9, was their first full Board meeting.

Seven new Directors were elected in Areas A, B, F, I, J, K and L. Five Directors returned to office in Areas C, D, E, G and H.

Electoral Area F Director-Elect, Conrad Turcotte, was not present to take his oath of office at the inaugural Board meeting. Directors have 45 days to take the oath and the current Electoral Area Director continues to hold office until the incoming Director takes the oath. If a Director-Elect does not take the oath of office within those 45 days, the current Electoral Area Director continues in the position and the CRD will hold a by-election as soon as is practical. For these reasons, Director Joan Sorley currently remains as Electoral Area F Director.

2019-2022 CRD Board of Directors:

  • Area A – Mary Sjostrom
  • Area B – Barb Bachmeier
  • Area C – John Massier
  • Area D – Steve Forseth
  • Area E – Angie Delainey
  • Area F – Joan Sorley (see note above)
  • Area G – Al Richmond
  • Area H – Margo Wagner
  • Area I – Jim Glassford
  • Area J – Gerald Kirby
  • Area K – Chad Mernett
  • Area L – Willow MacDonald

Funding Provided to 100 Mile Nordic Ski Society

The Board of Directors approved a contribution agreement of $40,000 in Community Works Funds towards the 100 Mile Nordics Ski Society’s lighting project. Through funding from the CRD and the Province’s Rural Dividend Fund, the Society plans to install a new LED lighting system at the 99 Mile Ski Trails. The Community Works Fund is delivered to all local governments in British Columbia through a direct annual allocation from the federal and provincial governments gas tax funds to support local priorities.

NDIT Grant Received for Alex Fraser Park

The Regional District received confirmation of the approval for their recent grant application to Northern Development Initiative Trust. NDIT approved $30,000 towards the Alex Fraser Park multi-use agriculture building project.

NStQ Treaty Advisory Committee Succession

Chair Margo Wagner appointed Vice-Chair John Massier as the new CRD Board representative on the Northern Shuswap (NStQ) Treaty Advisory Committee and Side Tables.

Former Director Ted Armstrong served as the committee appointee for many years. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the discussions, negotiations and conflicts concerning the discussion of treaties with the First Nations who are in the process in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

To maintain the knowledge and relationships built by former Director Armstrong, the Regional District Board authorized a transition plan where Vice-Chair Massier and former Director Armstrong will both attend the meetings for up to nine months.
