Interior Roads Update

Phil Doddridge of Interior Roads attended to update Council on current

and future plans. He started out by stating what a challenging winter

this past one was. Coun. Dyck commented on how difficult it was to see

the lines on the highway again this winter. Mayor Stanke commented on

the number of drivers who seem to think that there is a four-lane

highway through town. Doddridge said he will speak to Ministry of

Highways Michelle Schilling about that.

Kamloops Foundation

Paddy Harrington presented the Kamloops Foundation Annual Report to

Council. He advised that the Village of Clinton had come on board and

set up their Community Fund in 1999 with $500. The Clinton Millenium

Community Fund now has $3,600 in its endowment and has existing income

of $2,441.50.

Harrington explained how there is an opportunity to use matching

dollars from Northern Trust to build an Endowment Fund with a Public

Foundation. The minimum they will consider is $10,000 for each year.

Council voted to bring this topic to future budget workshops for

further investigation.

The Village of Clinton received a notice that the museum summer

student grant had been approved. They may now proceed with hiring a

student to work in the museum for the summer.

Community Forest Invitation

A letter from Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural

Resources Operations advised the Village that the Minister was

directing the Regional Manager of the Southern Interior Forest Region

to invite the Village of Clinton to apply for a CFA for up to 20,000

square meters of allowable annual cut.”

Clinton VFD Report

members.
