Housing Office News/Report February 11, 2015 Housing Committee - The housing office is still working on getting the Housing Committee up and running again. I have a meeting with Chief & Council on the 12th to get the committee ratified! once this is done we can start having regular meetings again :) Housing Policies and Housing Rental Agreements - Once the newly formed housing committee is ratified by C&C we will begin to look at a universal Housing Policy, Housing Rental Policy, and Terms of Reference for the housing committee. We are hoping to apply these policies to all band rental properties, not just Social Housing Units. The housing office is still doing the necessary call outs for maintenance and other services, rents are being collected by most, not all, but MOST :) which is a great improvement. One of the top priorities for the new committee, once they are established, will also be dealing with the non-payment of rents. Invoices and bank deposits are being done every month. Entries for rent charged and rent paid are being entered into the computer and printouts are given to the band manager so that they are brought to the attention of C&C for review as well. CMHC Plan to Improve Operations - The housing office has been working in partnership with CMHC to address CMHC Housing operations since 2013. It was held off for the year that I was away but is now underway again. Mostly dealing with CMHC units under our operating agreement. Lot-in-fills - As you may have noticed there has been a lot of work being done around the reserve, old units that were condemned were burnt down and the Lots that they were on, cleaned up and ready for new buildings. Once the committee is in place we will begin meeting to determine the next process of building new homes on those potential lots. Housing Conference - I will be attending a Housing Conference in Vancouver along with Dodie Rufus and Leslie Walkus on February 20th. Hopefully they will have new information on building, renovation, and new tech materials. Leo Lawson will also be attending this conference. CMHC annual Client Visit is this year, which means our representative will be here in July to inspect the Social housing units again to be sure we are complying with our operating agreement. Look for notices as to the exact date once it is confirmed. So, be prepared for an inspection in April and in July CMHC rental units.  Thank you, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at 250-902-2304 or email me lornah@gwanak.info anytime! You can also message me on FB 

G&N RECYCLING DEPOT Hello everyone, hope everyone is having a happy new year. I’ve included another list of acceptable and unacceptable items for the recycling depot.

The hours are 1-5pm -Monday -Wednesday -Friday

I’d like to ask people not to drop things off after hours. Dogs and birds have been making a mess of garbage been left behind and other Items such as beds, couches, boxes’ has been getting wet and makes it difficult to deal with once I’m back to work. So please wait until the facility is open and I will be happy to assist you. Please remind children not to climb the fences while depot is closed would hate for someone to get hurt if there is no one around. Thanks Brandon Walkus

Emergency planning meeting: Our next scheduled meeting is on March 5, 10-11 am at Wakas Hall. Please feel free to drop by and see what we are doing. Culverts: It has been noticed that children have been putting blocks of wood and other debris into the culverts when it's raining. It cost the Band over $3,000.00 to get one culvert cleaned out and have it replaced because it was plugged with old wood. Please watch your children and get them to stop doing this. Together we can have a safe and clean community. Bob Swain Public Works/Emergency Coordinator Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw Nations
