Director getting down to business

BX-Silver Star directors earns another three-year term with Regional District of North Okanagan by acclamation

Mike Macnabb expects a busy three years around the Regional District of North Okanagan board table.

Macnabb will serve another three-year term as BX-Silver Star director because no one else filed nomination papers for the Nov. 19 civic election.

“We’ve got some unfinished business,” said Macnabb when asked of his priorities for his constituents.

One of Macnabb’s primary concerns is resolving conflicts over Greater Vernon’s water and parks and recreation functions.

“I’d like to see the issue of fairness addressed and I hope Vernon will see the point,” he said.

“Areas B and C and Coldstream bring in $2 million a year to parks and recreation. We want a meaningful say around the table.”

Macnabb says the Nov. 19 civic elections may lead to different representatives from the  participating jurisdictions and that could move the discussion forward.

Macnabb also wants to look at development and governance issues at Silver Star.

“They have special interests and needs up there,” he said.

Other items on Macnabb’s agenda are policing, the regional fire training centre and the electoral area annexation impact study.

He also wants to see the 20-year-old subdivision servicing bylaw updated.

Macnabb, who has lived in the BX since 1991 and is a professional engineer, is RDNO’s representative to the Okanagan Regional Library.
