Each year, Council submits resolutions to the Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA) for consideration at its Annual Convention. In 2023, Council brought three resolutions for debate, one of which was for Greater Enforcement for the Provincial Invasive Mussel Defense Program. The resolution was endorsed and will be submitted to the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) which is then presented to its membership at the Annual Convention. You can learn more about the resolution here: 2023 SILGA Resolutions Book
