Regional district continues ALC agreement

 

The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George board voted to continue its delegation agreement with the Agricultural Land Commission.

The agreement gives the Board the authority to make decisions regarding non-farm use and subdivision applications within the Agricultural Land Reserve when the proposal meets the terms of an approved Official Community Plan. The original agreement was signed in 2002. Earlier this year the Agricultural Land Commission provided the regional district with a proposed Delegation Agreement to replace the current agreement. The board will look to finalize the new agreement in the spring of 2018.

Asset Management Strategy adopted

The regional district is moving forward with an asset management strategy. Regional District assets include infrastructure such as community water and sewage systems, trails, parking lots and a variety of buildings, solid waste infrastructure and fire trucks and light duty vehicles.

In 2016, the value of the regional district’s current assets was estimated at over $54 million. This strategy will provide the framework for the regional district to move forward in the development of a program that embraces best practices in asset management to support sustainable service delivery.
