Feedback Requested: Derelict and Abandoned Vessels Draft Manual

The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources has completed a draft of their “Practical Manual for Addressing Problem Vessels and Floating Structures”, and is now requesting that UBCM Members review and provide input on the draft manual.

For any local government dealing with problem vessels, the issue of who is responsible for what is a key concern. The draft manual seeks to address this issue by:

1.    explaining which level of government can do what in different situations;
2.    identifying key points of contact for resolving problems; and
3.    outlining options for a collaborative approach for dealing with the most serious issues.

UBCM members are asked to review the draft manual and provide input by November 15, 2013. Please send your comments to UBCM Senior Policy Analyst, Maria Stanborough.
