Each of the land base consists of a combination of community infrastructure facilities that are critical to the overall socio-economic health and wellbeing of the community these facilities include community halls, administrative offices, daycare, Band operated schools, water treatment facilities etc. As well each land base has single family units and some multifamily attached units, which house families, single parents, and elders both on assisted living and in-home care.
The administration delivers all the services of a local municipal type government however, in respect to service delivery the Band administration deals with a greater range of service delivery. Some examples of services that a municipal government would not deal with but the Neskonlith administration does deliver include management of natural resources, Band operated school programming, social services programming and the direct promotion of the economic growth of the community. Now as of November of 2009 the Chief and Council have decided to examine if management of our Neskonlith reserve lands is right path of future community self-determination and prosperity.
