DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Peace River Regional District directors will consider signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Village of Pouce Coupe at their September 9th board meeting.

If approved the five-year agreement would see the PRRD provide $1,500 annually to assist with the operating costs of the Riverview Cemetery, located outside the Pouce Coupe boundary on Briar Ridge Road.

It’s not the first time the regional district has helped the area with cemetery funding, $24,500 has been contributed to the village over the past 14 years through Electoral Area D.
