PROPOSED PEACHLAND TOWN CRIER
Council declined the proposal for a Peachland Town Crier. An individual requested that Council consider investing in a Town Crier, who would offer his services to Peachland events for a one- time fee of $1,500; to pay for the purchase of the required uniform. Council referred this individual to the Tourism Promotion Committee (TPC). The TPC has recommended that Council decline the proposal from the Town Crier.

Reasons included:

  • A Town Crier does not align with the TPC’s strategic plan and how they want to market/brand Peachland
  • Peachland does not have a Tudor theme, or 18th century focus; therefore, the Committee feels that a Town Crier is not the right fit for Peachland
  • A Town Crier does not fulfill the mandate of the TPC committee, which is ‘to identify and support sustainable events that strengthen the local economy, especially during the shoulder season

AMENDMENTS TO THE WATER RATES AND SEWER RATES BYLAWS
Council adopted amendments to the water rates bylaw and sewer rates bylaw. The amendments area result of the approved Secondary Suites and Garden Suites Policy, that sets the application process to achieve legally resisted suite designation within Peachland. In addition to the base fee charges for the principle dwelling, a secondary suite will be charged 40% of the water base fee for the principle dwelling. The water consumption fee will remain the same.

OUTDOOR FOOD VENDING APPLICATION – KONA ICE OF CENTRAL OKANAGAN
Council approved the application for Outdoor Vending Applicant, Kona Ice of the Central Okanagan. The Vending applicant will be located in the location of Outdoor Vending Location #4, on Beach Avenue and 13th Street.
