The Village is pleased to advise that the Harvey Creek Intake and PRV-5 are now back online and fully functional. Water restrictions are now lifted.
We would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation in acknowledging and abiding by the water restrictions while we worked to rectify this unfortunate incident.

The Village has been notified of a vehicle break-in on Isleview Place overnight. We would like to take this opportunity to remind residents to be vigilant in protecting their vehicles and personal property from would-be thieves. The following link details some tips from ICBC for proactive prevention of auto crime: http://www.icbc.com/road-safety/prevent-autocrime/Documents/Auto-crime.pdf
If you are the victim of auto crime, or any other crime, it is important to report each incident to the Squamish RCMP as quickly as possible and with as much detail as possible. Emergencies should be reported by dialing 9-1-1; the non-emergency line is (604) 892-6100.
There has recently been another coyote small animal attack in the village. Please be diligent about your pets. Below is further information on resources to educate yourself, your family and your neighbours about coyotes, behaviors and preventative measures.
It is imperative to report sightings to the RAPP line! The operator will ask very specific questions about your encounter – this is why it is extremely important for the witness to contact the RAPP line directly at 1-877-952-7277.
The Conservation Officers Service has advised their mandate is to ensure public safety, which does not include protection of pets. The COS notes it is the responsibility of homeowners to adjust behaviors and take precautions to reduce risk to pets.
Recently, I have been asked by a resident about the comments attributed to Councilor Ando in which he speaks about his personal concerns regarding the Community Centre. I hope the following information will help to put the work on the Community Centre Repairs and Update into perspective.
It is with great pleasure that Council announces that at our October 3rd, 2014 Closed meeting, Council appointed Ms. Mandy Koonts as the Village of Lions Bay's new Chief Administrative Officer effective November 28th, 2014.
Ms. Koonts has been involved with municipal government for over a decade and the Village was extremely fortunate to persuade her to join our senior management team just over a year ago. During this past year, Ms. Koonts has held the positions of Acting Chief Administrative Officer, Deputy Chief Election Officer, Information Officer for the Village and the By-law Screening Officer, in addition to her role as Office Coordinator.

Enclosed is Public Works Manager N. Hoglund's Report to Council November 4, 2013 re Update on Harvey Intake Slide & Subsequent Actions Taken. Here is the Information Report.
With the recent heavy rains there is considerable discussion by our residents about the Village's water related infrastructure, and the current issues with Harvey Creek. At the November 4th Council meeting, Public Works Manager Nikii Hoglund presented the subject report and answered questions on issues related to the Harvey Creek intake slide and boil water advisory. Council asked that the Harvey Creek intake information be conveyed to the public via epost along with details of why there is a boil water advisory and the challenges the Village faces to lift it. This is hoped to be dispatched this week but with early election voting today, focus on completion of the Community Center for the Remembrance Day celebration, and attention to Harvey Creek the release may be delayed.
