March 6, 2006 Westside Issues Committee Meeting Minutes
North Westside Communities Association

The Association had two items to discuss with the Committee

  1. Parks - John Leesing addressed the Committee and noted that there was a desire in the Community to create a Children's playground, which would be in the name of the Communities Association.  However, a capital contribution in the amount of $10,000.00 is requested from the Regional District.  In addition, as well as operating funds for the playground ($2,000), the community felt that $35,000 needed to be spent on Killiney Beach Park.

  1. Fire Chief - Jim E. addressed the Committee and stressed the community's desire for a full time fire chief.  He noted that in their view, the budget could handle the additional costs.

Community representatives meet with the CAO to develop a process which involves the community in reviewing the need for a Fire Chief and eventually leading to a report to the Regional District Board.
