Village awaits legal advice on Oasis Plaza

Cache Creek waits to hear from their lawyers before taking action against the Oasis Plaza.

The deadline given to the owner of the Oasis Plaza in Cache Creek to board up his “unsightly premises” has come and gone (July 18) without action by the owner.

Although the Village’s bylaw outlines the fines to be levied against a property owner who does not comply, it has been referred to their legal counsel for advice on how to proceed.

Administrator Dan Plamondon said the Village is proceeding cautiously in order to protect itself and the taxpayer against any legal action the property owner may choose to take.

Plamondon said it’s costing the taxpayer money to consult with lawyers, but the Village is hoping that they will be able to recoup their costs in pursuing this matter.
