A roundup of Council news from the Jan. 14 meeting of Cache Creek Council.

From the Cache Creek Council meeting on Jan. 14

Roll Call: Mayor John Ranta and councillors Lisa Dafoe, Herb Hofer, Wyatt McMurray and Darrell Rawcliffe.

CCBS grant request

Mayor Ranta read out the grant request from the Cache Creek Beautification Society and noted that $2,000 is what they received from the Village last year. The money was already included in the municipal budget and the request was approved.

The group also asked the Village to purchase Christmas decorations for the Community Hall, and to provide picnic tables and a garbage can for the Farmer and Flea Market this year.

“The money is already in the budget for Hall decorations,” said Ranta, who added that it shouldn’t be a problem to find two picnic tales and a garbage can for the Market.

Kinsmen Club

Council approved a request for free use of the Community Hall by the Kinsmen Club of South Cariboo for their Turkey Bingo on Dec. 8.

Carpet Bowling

Council approved a request for free use of the Community Hall by the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association for their annual Carpet Bowling Tournament on Apr. 16, with setup on th 15th.

Ducks Unlimited

Council approved a request from Ducks Unlimited Ashcroft-Cache Creek Chapter for free use of the Community Hall on Dec. 18 for their annual dinner and auction.

Variety Bingo

Mayor Ranta announced that the Variety Club Bingo was being held Feb. 4 at the Community Hall.

The Bingo was cancelled last year when local non profit groups refused to let their gaming licenses be used by the Village to hold the once-a-year bingo.

Ranta said the Village received a D License from the Variety Club group through the Gaming Branch. He said it wasn’t hard at all to get a license for one non-profit group to hold a bingo to raise money for another non-profit group.

The last bingo raised over $1,000 for the Variety Club. Doors open at 6 pm.

Web portal

Council agreed to commit $2,000 of the Village’s economic development funds to the TNRD to create the Thompson Nicola web portal.

Coun. McMurray was opposed “to the TNRD spending our money on economic development.

“I see how TNRD spends money,” he said, “and to have them ask us for $2,000 just amazes me.”

“It’s for economic development, which is a priority for Cache Creek,” said Ranta. “We’ll be able to get any opportunities we think we have out to the market. If you’re not (online), people who are looking aren’t going to see you.”
