The District of Sparwood is seeking the public's feedback on Cemetery Management Bylaw 1017. The new bylaw, if adopted, will replace Rivercrest Cemetery Bylaw 877 and Elk Valley (Michel) Cemetery Operation and Maintenance Bylaw 831. Changes include the prohibition against pets being permitted in either cemetery, larger floral receptacles in Rivercrest Cemetery, regulations surrounding adornments at Rivercrest Cemetery, and updates to the fees and charges for both cemeteries.
The operation of off-road vehicles will once again be permitted on Crown land throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre, effective at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017. The campfire prohibitions remain in effect throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre. View the information bulletin here.
Note that some area restrictions are still in effect on Crown land in the vicinity of large wildfires in the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre. Please visit the BC Wildfire Service website to see where these restrictions still apply.
