Radium jumps aboard transportation plan

Safe roads and Catamount Glacier were among the items discussed at the council meeting in the Village of Radium Hot Springs.

Safe roads and Catamount Glacier were among the items on the agenda at the Wednesday, October 22nd council meeting in the Village of Radium Hot Springs.

Council voted to get on board with B.C. on the Move, a ten-year transportation plan rolled out by the Ministry of Transportation. Through consultation, the village hopes to see a crosswalk with flashing lights for pedestrians, as well as lower speed limits along Highway 93 before the pools.

Catamont Glacier to be regulated

In new business, a proposal was accepted to regulate activity around Catamount Glacier.

“There are a group of individuals going up to Catamount Glacier who want to use Radium as an avenue that funding would come in and out of,” Mayor Dee Conklin said. “They want to apply to the Columbia Basin Trust and have snowmobilers pay reasonable fees and have some management in that area. There are none right now.”

She said that affected groups are supportive of the proposal as a few people tend to damage the trails for many.

Emergency electricity education

Also announced was a defibrillator tutorial that will be taking place at the the Radium Community Hall on Saturday, January 25th in 2015.

“The training is for all ages,” said Mayor Conklin. “There’s no certification, but you learn the knowledge to use it.”
