A group focused on keeping the Lakeland environmentally safe is getting ready for their major meeting. LICA, or the Lakeland Industry and Community Association, will host their Annual General Meeting on October 9th in Bonnyville.
The group was founded back in 2000 as a way for communication between oil and gas producers and residents in the region. Executive Director Arianne Crook says the organization has grown in scope since then.
“Then we became the local airshed zone in the region, monitoring the air quality in the region for the oil and gas producers in the are.”
The group is also doing watershed planning and advising for the Beaver River Watershed. The AGM will begin at 6 PM at the Centennial Centre. Crook says it will feature a chance to talk about what has been done and work into the future.
“We’ll give maybe a more in-depth presentation than we have in the last couple of years. We’re proud of the things that we have done and want to share that with our membership.”
LICA memberships will be available at the meeting and are required to vote in the board elections being held. More information on the group and their AGM is at their official website.
