Proposed Deer Management Strategy

Staff were directed by Council on August 2, 2011 to provide options for Council consideration on the deer management issue. A report was then completed outlining a number of Conflict Reduction and Population Reductions options for consideration in dealing with the deer management issue and presented to Council on September 6, 2011. Examples of deer management strategies from other communities within BC (Grand Forks & Kimberley) were provided to Council as information to be used when directing Staff on an appropriate deer management strategy.  This report was endorsed by Council at the September 19 Council meeting, and a further status report will be presented to Council and members of the public at the Monday, October 3 Council meeting.
