Because our village lies within the boundaries of Yoho National Park, it is in a unique situation whereby the general town services – water, sewer, garbage, snow removal, etc. – are managed by Parks Canada. However, Field does have a council consisting of 10 members split evenly between the F.C.C. (Field Community Council) and the F.R.A.A. (Field Recreation / Advisory Association). The latter is incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia.
Field Recreation / Advisory Association
As mentioned above, this is the incorporated arm of the community council who’s main purpose is organizing events throughout the year. The F.R.A.A. consists of 5 members.
The defined purposes of the Association are:
- To assist recreation activities as a whole for the Community.
- To obtain and control finances and to procure and administer equipment in connection with the foregoing objectives; and to assure that such finances and properties are not misused or used for purposes at variance with these objectives.
- To encourage all citizens to assume their share of responsibility and participate in the support of community recreation.
- To co-operate with all properly constituted bodies, both elected and appointed.
Field Community Council
More to come on the Field Community Council. The F.C.C. consists of 5 members.
