CAO report

The Nakusp Hot Springs will be closed from March 13-19 for seasonal maintenance, including some roofing work on the main building and chalets. The aim is to create minimal impact on the chalets and do them one at a time so that they can still be used for accommodation if there is a need.

 

 

 

Waterfront Lighting Project

The Rotary Club of Nakusp was set to proceed with the waterfront lighting project when they hit a major snag — there is no power along the waterfront to tie into as a source for additional lighting. Because the village will be taking on maintenance and costs after the work is complete, CAO Tynan said, “It is imperative to do this right.” A lot of things hadn’t been considered when the proposal was made so there will be some additional requirements placed on the authorization to proceed.

 

 

 

AKBLG

The Association of Kootenay and Boundary Local Governments Annual General Meeting is being held in Nakusp this year in April. Preparations are in full swing.

“We’re quite full-on with the planning, and registrations opened today,” CAO Linda Tynan said. They are up to $60,000 in sponsorships and are still seeking additional funding.

 

 

 

Budget and Strategic Planning Meetings

 

Dates are set for both open and closed meetings for the budget and strategic planning. Anyone wanting to attend budgetary meetings for the village may do so on March 11 and 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the village office boardroom on the upper level (access through back door).
