Courtenay representative Larry Jangula praised the Comox Valley Citizens on Patrol Society, which has received a combined $1,500 grant-in-aid from each of the electoral areas, as approved Tuesday by the regional district board. The money will help the group with operating expenses.

Jangula, noting the City of Courtenay gives Citizens on Patrol about $20,000, feels the money is “probably the best bang for the buck” in terms of grants bestowed, considering the extent to which the society assists the RCMP in terms of patrols, directing traffic and other such services.

The board approved dozens of grants-in-aid to assist groups such as the Anderton Therapeutic Gardens Society, Arts Denman, the Blazing Paddles Dragon Boat Society and the Comox Valley Head Injury Society.

The board approved the establishment of a water quality sample station for Comox Lake to continuously monitor water quality from a proposed deep-water intake location. The project budget is $80,000.
