Post-COVID-19 Strategy

The Director of Corporate Services and Chief Administrative Officer gave a presentation to the Board outlining the Regional District’s post-COVID-19 strategy. A four-phased framework for the return to regular operations has been developed, with the TNRD currently operating in phase one. For the safety of staff and public protection, each phase will be guided by the directives of the provincial health officer and the BC Centre for Disease Control.

COVID-19 Potential Budget Impacts

The Board received a report from the Director of Finance assessing potential impacts to the 2020 budget due to COVID-19. Because the pandemic has placed such an unprecedented financial stress on the economy, the TNRD faces a more significant risk of not receiving all of the budgeted property taxes this year.

Landfill Engineering Services Contract

The Chair and Corporate Officer were authorized to execute a contract with Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, a Division of Wood Canada Limited (Wood), for landfill engineering services. Following an invitation for Expression of Interest (EOI), Wood scored the highest out of the eleven proposals that were received and evaluated, scoring 88.3 out of a possible 100 points.

The next Regular Board Meeting is on June 18, 2020 at 1:15 pm.
