Bylaw adjudication process working for TNRD

In February of this year, the board adopted a bylaw that allows for the enforcement of regional district's regulatory bylaws

A report was provided to the Thompson-Nicola Regional District board of directors during its meeting on Oct. 22 that included statistics on the TNRD’s new bylaw dispute adjudication system.

In February of this year, the board adopted a bylaw that allows for the enforcement of regional district’s regulatory bylaws through issuance of a notice (a ticket with corresponding fines).

The new system also allows disputes to be resolved through an adjudicator instead of through the provincial court system.

In July, August and September, a total of eight tickets were issued — two were paid and one was disputed. One ticket was taken through to an adjudication hearing.

 

Occupational health and wellness position created

After receiving a report on the increasing attention WorkSafe BC has been giving to health and safety at local government work places, the board resolved to create a safety and wellness specialist position within the human resources department, effective January 2016.
