In doing so, the Underwood’s legal capacity has now been reduced from 100 people to 60.

New rep

Ron Betts has stepped down as the community’s representative on the Shuswap Tourism Committee. Chase council approved his replacement, Elena Markin from the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce, stating she is a logical choice for the committee.

Betts, general manager of Tree Top Flyers, had asked to step down, as his busy schedule limits his ability to participate on the committee.

Coun. David Lepsoe will continue as council’s representative on the committee.

Directors chosen

It was agreed that Mayor Ron Anderson will be appointed as the village’s director on the Thompson Nicola Regional District board of directors for 2013, and that Coun. Rick Berrigan be appointed the village’s alternate director.
