Mayor's Brown Bag Lunch Tuesday September 14th
Roy Catherall brought up the subject of last night’s council meeting concerning the Community Forest. There was much discussion around what exactly the Community Forest is, a demonstration forest, an interpretation forest or something else. Mayor Manjak commented he realised this was valued land. Sheldon Isaman commented there is a lot of deadfall, which is a fire hazard within the forest and a discussion followed as to whose responsibility that is. Mayor Manjak commented that should there be a fire within the forest, the residential area adjacent to the land is in real jeopardy. At Mayor Manjak’s suggestion it was agreed he, Mayor Manjak would approach Minister Bennett for a meeting with the Community Forest Society to discuss and finally settle once and for all what exactly the Community Forest is and put in place some sort of new Management Plan to replace the old one put in place in the 1990's.
