Board agrees to emergency ice chiller replacement

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is trying to preserve some of the summer ice season at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre following the discovery of trace amounts of ammonia in the brine solution of the arena’s ice  chilling system.

To ensure the facility will be operational in the fall, the CSRD Board voted unanimously to pay up to $250,000 for the emergency purchase of a new plate-and-frame ice chiller.

Shuswap Emergency Program honours memory of longtime volunteer

The Shuswap Emergency Program is remembering one of its most tireless volunteers, Ron Essex.

A teacher by trade, Essex was a very dedicated Emergency Support Services volunteer, dating back to the Salmon Arm/Silver Creek Wildfire of 1998. He continued to assist through the formation of the Shuswap Emergency Program and, despite his illness, attended his last volunteer meeting just over a week ago.

Electoral Area E OCP and Zoning Virtual Open House

Provincial Health Orders are currently requiring that the public be restricted from attending meetings in-person until the order is rescinded or changed. This means all in-person attendance for members of the public is no longer permitted at any CSRD meeting, including Open House events, Board meetings and public hearings. Electronic attendance remains available to all members of the public who wish to view this meeting in real time on Zoom.
