Cache Creek Council Briefs

from May 24

From the Cache Creek Council meeting from May 24.

Roll Call: Mayor John Ranta and councillors Ida Makaro, Wyatt McMurray and Darrell Rawcliffe. Missing: Coun. Jim Loucks.

Landfill Review

Council agreed to extend the contract with AECOM to perform the independent review of the Annual Report for the Cache Creek Landfill. AECOM has complete the review of the annual report for the past six years. The work involves reviewing the landfill’s annual report, assessing compliance with the Operational Certificate and Operating Plan, and conducting a site visit to confirm facility conditions and improvements. The Annual Report itself is conducted by Wastech and its consultants, and includes groundwater, drainage, litter, and landfill gas monitoring results.

The cost of the independent review is between $12,400-$13,000 per year.

Royal Purple Anniversary

Council agreed to waive rental and damage fees for the Royal Purple’s 50th anniversary Tea on May 7.

Water System Annual Report

Council received the 2010 Water System annual report for the Village’s water system. The 67-page report is available for the public to read at the Village Office.

Downtown Revitalization

Council agreed to a request by the Chamber of Commerce to pay for landscape work being done in front of Chums and the Elementary School. The Chamber’s  contractor quoted a sum of $52,250 plus tax to install pavers along the highway from the school to Anie’s, and from Chums to the Collins Rd. intersection.

The Village has money left over in the $300,00 budget they put aside in last year’s budget for the Gateway project – the new Cariboo Sam park at the main intersection – to pay for the new pavers.

LM Local Government Assoc.

Mayor John Ranta reported that he had attended the Lower Mainland LGA’s annual convention earlier this month in Whistler, where he talked to members informally about the Cache Creek Landfill.

“The perception I got from non-Metro Vancouver council members was that waste incineration in the Lower Mainland was probably not the right thing to do,” he told Council.

He added that everyone he spoke to was in interested in how Cache Creek’s  meeting with Environment Minister Terry Lake went.

He said most agreed that waste export was probably not the best thing for BC Jobs and they’re hoping for a “made in BC” solution.

Electronic attendance

Council defeated a motion to amend Procedure Bylaw 754. Mayor Ranta voted in favour, councillors Ida Makaro and Darrell Rawcliffe voted against it.

The amendment would have limited how many times a councillor could attend meetings electronically.

OCP

Council adopted its Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw 740.

Zoning Amendment

Council voted to adopt Bylaw 741 to amend Zoning Bylaw 423, 1990 by rezoning the lands in the Moffett subdivision between Hwy 97 and Old Cariboo Rd. from C1 (General and Hwy Commercial) and C2 (Service Commercial) to C3 (Recreation Commercial) and R5 (Mobile Home Park).

Repair shops

Council adopted Zoning Amendment Bylaw 750 to allow for “automobile repair shop, paint shop and body shop” as a permitted use within the C1 (General and Hwy Commercial) zone.

Seniors Games

Council agreed to provide a letter of support for the City of Kamloops’ bid to host the 2013 or 2014 Seniors Games. The Villages of Cache Creek and Ashcroft are part of Zone 8, which also includes Kamloops.

Next Meeting
