Remuneration and Expense Reporting

The Director and Committee Member Remuneration and Expense Report for 2014 was presented to the board and is now available for public inspection. If residents wish to view the report, they can find it on the finance page of tnrd.ca

Fire Service resolution

The province of B.C. is expected to introduce legislation in the spring of 2016 that will require regional districts to perform fire inspections of public buildings in rural areas. As most regional districts have neither the staff nor the existing funding source to carry out fire inspections, many regional districts and area associations are considering similar resolutions opposing a proposed download of a provincial responsibility to local government.

A resolution will be forwarded to UBCM for consideration at the 2015 annual convention and the TNRD’s voice will be added to the opposition for this initiative.

Kamloops, Logan Lake, Nicola Valley, Barriere and Wells Gray Search and Rescue teams will each receive a $10,000 annual Search and Rescue operating grant.
