Council keeps eye on facilities

Coun. Nick Hodge will be appointed to a committee to oversee property owned by Lumby

There’s a growing need to keep an eye on public assets in Lumby.

Coun. Nick Hodge will be appointed to a committee to oversee property owned by the village.

“The golf course and the cemetery need attention,” said Mayor Kevin Acton.

“We want there to be an ear for residents who have concerns about these properties.”

Acton has also made several other appointments for 2014.

Coun. Jo Anne Fisher will be the village’s representative to the Lumby Chamber of Commerce and Lumby Seniors Housing Society, while Coun. Lori Mindnich will go to Okanagan Regional Library.

Coun. Randal Ostafichuk will be a member of the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Committee and liaison to the Lumby Days Society.

Hodge is a delegate to the Municipal Insurance Association and Acton’s duties include the Regional District of North Okanagan.

Acton used to be a liaison to the White Valley Community Resource Centre, but he will now go to the Lumby Health Services Society, while Mindnich will be the representative to the resource centre.

“I’d like to see what the health services society does and to get more involved there,” said Acton.
