Board pay reviewed

There’s the possibility that political pay could come under scrutiny

There’s the possibility that political pay could come under scrutiny.

The Regional District of North Okanagan board has directed staff to provide information on options for conducting a review of board remuneration.

“It’s an opportunity to come back and have another look at it,” said director Mike Macnabb.

The last review of remuneration was about five or six years ago. The board consists of 14 directors from six municipalities and five electoral areas.

Meeting on the move

A major gathering of elected officials means the Regional District of North Okanagan board is adjusting its schedule.

Because the Southern Interior Local Government Association convention runs from April 19 to 22, the RDNO board meeting April 20 has been moved to April 18 (2 p.m.) so local politicians can attend the conference. Also shifting is the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee meeting, which was set for April 21. It will now run April 28.
