Deer management in Oak Bay rears its head again this month.

During budget discussions in March, council tasked staff with creating an estimate of what an attitude survey surrounding ungulates in the community could cost to create.

Staff have not yet responded to this resolution but sought more direction from council during its Sept. 23 committee of the whole meeting. The question of deer on the citizen satisfaction survey was pushed to the October committee of the whole meeting slated for Oct. 17.

The 2016 budget includes $10,000 for deer management activities.
