City Hall Tracker January 26 2009
The second gathering of 2009 for council and mayor, as they begin to get into the swing of this municipal governance thing.
Included once again on the agenda was an interesting request for partnership with the city from the Hecate Strait Business Society, so the Business society could access funding that isn't normally available to a non-charity operation (page 27 of the January 12 agenda).
However as we discovered through the minutes of the January 12 meeting (page three), this item was withdrawn for consideration at the last minute two weeks ago pending further discussion and infomation from staff. Those discussions apparently successful, it placed back on the agenda for last night's meeting see (pages 37 and 38 of January 26 agenda).
However, once again, as it was two weeks ago, there was little in the way of detail provided on the agenda regarding what the request is for, or how it would work. That would apparently be explained during the presentation.
Beyond that item, council was to look at such things as an extension to a demolition order, receive the findings of the ferry advisory committee and review some bylaw recommendations.
In committee of the whole they were to hear a report from MLA Gary Coons and take in a presentation from Communities in Bloom, the health Advisory Committe and from Howard Gray on waterfront development.
