5.  President's Report


  • The park is to have culverts installed around end of October as volunteered by Nick ROY.  Lorne will be cleaning up stumps and exposed roots now that larger stumps have been removed. The beach area improvements in the future.

  • Fire Agreement with Regina Beach involving five communities continues to be worked on.  There will be an increase for Kinookimaw from 2001 rate of $1800 to approx. $6000 or more. 


  • The new lagoon continues to progress, hopefully open by mid-November.  KBA has contributed $148,000 to the project so far.  I continue to attend meeting updates and will keep everyone informed.


  • Lorne has pulled harrows to help smooth the roads, assorted street signs have been ordered but Signal Industries is closing so we are not sure of the order’s status.  Lorne will check. Speed bumps have been removed for the season.


  • J. Bumphrey is working on a community mapping project for KBA.


  • Water, apparently, cannot be chlorinated at this time for two reasons: 1) High magnesium levels will cause the water to turn brown.  Water needs filtering to reduce the magnesium level.  2)  We do not have enough storage capacity to allow the chlorine to “work”, prior to actually being used.


  • A community water meeting will be subject to a separate email to the Board and community, forming an advisory group.


  • Christmas Supper is December 1, 2018 at Memorial Hall.


  • Next meeting is for 2019 Budget/work planning.


  • Tree affected by road oil at Rootman’s needs replacing.


  • Incorporation needs to be concluded as soon as practical.

M: That the Presidents report and related discussion be accepted as presented.

       M/S: G. Tramer/C. Bjarnason
