An audit of the Bulkley Timber Supply Area has brought forward a number of conerns.
Though most of the area complied with regulations, the audit revealed six bridges with structural concerns, culvert maintenance issues, and overall road maintenance issues.
Even more troubling is the information that the government already knew about these issues, yet the had not been corrected.
On top of the road issues, it was also found that many timber sale license holders were not complying with obligations to conduct fire hazzard assessments after logging.
The BC Timber Sales Program are already planning courses of action to correct the concerns.
