I have been contacted by a number of people interested in reading the 149 page report received by the SRD at the October 2009 Board meeting. Unfortunately, they have had little success in finding it on the SRD website. Here is the direct link and instructions for a manual search. I encourage everyone interested to review the report for themselves.
A downloadable PDF of the report is: HERE
If that doesn't take you directly to the report this is how you can do a manual search.
Go to www.strathcona.ca
On the bottom left side bar click on minutes. Enter October 2009 in the search windows and click search. This will display a listing of board and committee meetings held that month. Click on the SRD Board Minutes (top of the list). This opens the board minutes. Scroll down to the item called: Proposal for New Service -Cortes Island Community Hall. Click on [Item] (in blue). This opens the report attached to the minutes.
This is a large file, so be patient, especially if you are on dial-up. Don't enlarge the text of try to flip through pages until the download in complete. Once the download is complete use the "Save As" function to copy it onto your computer. With the document saved onto your computer you can read and print whatever pages are of interest to you.
Knowing how to manually search regional district minutes gives you reasonably easy access to decisions made at the open committee and board meetings.
