TNRD amends standing committee bylaws

The committee composition now more adequately reflects the composition of the board

During their regular board meeting on Dec. 12, Thompson-Nicola Regional District directors approved housekeeping changes and standing committee composition amendments for several standing committees. The changes and amendments were incorporated in the board standing committee bylaws for the following committees:

• Emergency Management and Protective Services

• Policy Review

• Regional Solid Waste Management

• Utility Systems

The committee composition now more adequately reflects the composition of the board, as Sun Peaks Resort Municipality, and the districts of Barriere and Clearwater, have been incorporated since the last bylaw amendments.

Bylaw updates officers’ duties and pay

Officers and Indemnification Bylaw 2450 combines provisions for appointment of officers and indemnification of employees, officers and members of the board.

The bylaw reduces the number of staff-appointed officers to only the position of CAO, corporate officer and director of finance. The bylaw is now also consistent with the administrative responsibility assigned to the CAO pursuant to the Local Government Act.

Board approves new policies

• The Dangerous Dog Control Policy was adopted.

• The Respectful Workplace Policy was adopted and replaces the former Harassment Policy.

• The Volunteer Recognition Program Policy was adopted and replaces former policies entitled Volunteer — Service Recognition and Volunteer Appreciation Dinners.

• The Confidentiality and Privacy Policy was adopted.

Answering services agreement to continue

The TNRD will continue participating in the Regional District of Central Okanagan 911 Public Service Answering Point (PSAP) program in 2014.

An agreement will be executed to extend the 911 PSAP agreement until December 31, 2014.

NTEDS funding

A total of $6,000 in contributions were approved from the North Thompson Economic Development Society funds available for Electoral Area B (Thompson Headwaters).


The contributions will help with participation in the tourism marketing alliance in 2014/2015 by providing matching funds for Community Tourism Opportunities Program and other tourism initiatives in Electoral Area B.
