What’s happening at Lake Country council

We posted a few highlights from Tuesday night’s council meeting

Channel problematic for boats

During Tuesday night’s regular council meeting, Coun. Jerremy Kozub asked it was possible for the district to apply for grants in order to dredge the stream connecting Kalamalka and Wood Lakes.

Coun. Todd McKenzie and Kozub recently visited the site, and said the channel is in dire need of dredging.

Chief administrative officer Alberto De Feo said this was an issue that could be discussed among staff, and that the issue has been ongoing for the last 10 years.

McKenzie said since the 2017 floods, sediment makes it difficult for boats to be able to pass through the channel.

Habitat for Humanity receives green light

Lake Country council approved of a development permit with variances for a new Habitat for Humanity project. After Coun. Cara Reed raised some concerns over parking, it was decided that the 12 multiple family units will be constructed within four buildings at 10618 Powley Crt.

Initially, in October a development permit was referred back to staff due to a number of complaints issued by neighbouring property owners. “The applicant has made some revisions to the design on the north building to mitigate the privacy concerns of the neighbours as expressed, these include removal of rear patios… and no direct access to the rear of the buildings,” according to a report which was to the district Tuesday night.
