A temporary vehicle shelter for the B.C. Ambulance Service (BCAS) will likely remain at the Bow Horne Bay Fire Department for another year after the group was unable to complete their design for a permanent structure by deadline. 

A motion was passed at a Regional District of Nanaimo Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday to extend the temporary building permit for another year.

• Bow Horne Bay Volunteer Fire Department is one step closer to purchasing a used fire truck from Nanoose Bay’s fire department after approval from Regional District directors at a Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday.

The 1995 Freightliner FL60 fire rescue/mini-pumper vehicle will cost $20,000 if approved at the next RDN meeting, utilizing funds from the department’s vehicle reserve fund.

• The Qualicum Bay Lions Club will likely get a $6,739 Grant-In-Aid to paint the Lions’ Recreation Centre in Qualicum Bay following approval at the Regional District of Nanaimo Committee of the Whole meeting.

If approved by the RDN’s board of directors, the money will come from the Area H Community Parks Function Budget.
