Radium renews Jumbo administration contract

Council voted to extend the contract by four years.

Jumbo, backlit signs, and policing were among the items discussed at Village of Radium Hot Springs regular council meeting on Wednesday, January 14th.

The administration contract with Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality will come to an end on February 19th, and council voted to extend the contract by four years.

Sign variations

In adhering to Radium’s sign bylaws, requests were made for variations on the sign at Petro-Canada, as well as Piccadilly Motel.

At Petro-Canada, the replacement of a coin laundry and Subway logo were requested. At Piccadilly, a backlit sign was requested, which had not previously been grandfathered.

Mayor Clara Reinhardt sympathized with the added marketing challenges for businesses off the main road. Both requests were successful.

Police presence

And after council discussed policing priorities for 2015, it was agreed they hoped to see more of the RCMP.

“Police service in Radium is good as responders, but we would like to see a bigger presence; partly as speed control and also interacting with businesses and townspeople,” Reinhardt said.

The next meeting takes place on Wednesday, January 28th at 7:30 p.m. Columbia Valley RCMP Staff Sgt. Marko Shehovac will be there to present his year-end policing report.
