Survey questioned by Comox Valley Regional District director

This year's resident survey will help the Comox Valley Regional District determine the level of interest in local government elections.

Results from this year’s resident survey will help the Comox Valley Regional District determine the level of interest in local government elections, and gauge interest levels on rural curbside recycling.

Ipsos-Reid vice-president Silvano Pelloi appeared before the committee of the whole Tuesday to discuss the survey process.

Courtenay director Starr Winchester questioned the benefit of surveys, and would like to know the cost involved.

“I’m still not convinced we should spend thousands for surveys,” she said.

Key results of the survey will be analyzed and presented to the board’s strategic planning session in the fall.

The committee approved the purchase of 2,123 tonnes of carbon offsets from a hydropower project in India for $4,246 to meet provincial carbon neutrality standards by June 1.

Remaining funds exceeding $47,000 will be set aside for a retrofit at the sports and/or aquatic centre, and other potential climate-related projects in the Valley.
