Comment:

Good example of watershed council proposal.
Recommendation:
Fund (low priority)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Budget constraints. Proposal was found to be technically sound and appropriate but was deferred because other work was judged more urgent and funds were not adequate for all needed work.
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This proposal, as with all watershed council proposals, should be reviewed on a separate level because it is primarily an administrative proposal and its existence is a policy question.
