Government Agent update

  • Sep. 23, 2005 1:00 p.m.

Submitted by Susan Ford, Government Agent–It’s the time of year to nominate a deserving individual who raises the quality and character of our community for a BC Community Achievement Award. The purpose is to celebrate British Columbians who go above and beyond in their dedication and service to others and who devote time and energy to making their communities more caring, dynamic, beautiful,
healthy and unique. Winners will be presented with a special commemorative medallion designed by Robert Davidson. It would be great to see a winner from among our islands’ residents! The nomination
deadline is November 15 and applications are available at your Service BC office or at www.bcachievement.com .
A reminder to anyone with outstanding rural property taxes, the next scheduled penalty will be applied to all outstanding balances after the close of business October 31. Contact your Service BC office if you have questions or are not sure if you have an outstanding balance. If you are unable to pay the full amount owing, in come cases payment arrangements can be made through this office.
At this time of year the office is busy with freshwater angling licence sales. Be sure to drop by to pick up your copy of the Freshwater Fishing
Regulations Synopsis, which details requirements including the Classified Waters Licence and the Conservation Surcharges Stamps.
September 1, Monica Jones became a permanent member of your Service BC team, replacing Geri Wurm who has moved to Fort St. John. We are fortunate to have someone with the skills, knowledge and dedication to service delivery that Monica brings to this position. Welcome Monica!
