This is important information for anyone who wishes to submit a negative vote, using the attached form, regarding the proposed loan to implement the new Water Filtration project.
If you look closely, there is no name or address information on the form should you wish to send your response via regular mail or if you drop it off at the CVRD offices.
Presumably, if you send your response to the address given for email submissions, it will be redirected appropriately.
According to the BC government’s Community Charter rules, any responses to any Alternative Approval Process (AAP) must be sent to the Corporate Officer at the regional government offices.
If you wish to reference this rule, it can be found by opening this document and going to page 17:

As quoted in the above document: “Local governments may decide to establish a process or procedure that includes how the forms are received, date-stamped and secured for the Corporate Officer’s access only, regardless of who receives the forms at the local government offices.”
But just to be sure, it might be a good idea to send the forms directly to the Corporate Officer for the CVRD – who is Angie Legault; her title and contact information can be found at:
