After their chocolate bunnies, Council gets back to work

With the Easter weekend over City council members will return to their civic duties on Tuesday, sitting in session one day later than usual due to those Easter observances and holiday requirements.

Upon their return to those chambers of decision, they will reflect on a number of items from the agenda for Tuesday's meeting.

Included for discussion by council will be a review of the recommendation that the city partner with the Hecate Strait Rotary Club to host the RCMP Musical Ride in the city on July 8 and 9. With a number of local business offering up their services, there would be a three way split of the expenses to host the Musical Ride at the Civic Centre, a breakdown of which is available on the city's agenda page.

Other business of the day will include a recommendation to record a property on Overlook as a nuisance property with a thirty day order to have the property cleaned up properly.

City Manager, Gordon Howie will present his report on Outstanding Council initiatives, which will apparently include an update on audit plans, and a preview of the April 16th Budget Presentation at City Council Chambers which the public is invited to attend. He will also update Council on the progress of the Economic Development website (now featuring Japanese and Chinese translation) and the search for a new Economic Development Officer for the region. There is also to be more details on the fitness portal that the city plans to install along the walking trails near the Civic Centre and details on the Duncan road sewage pump project.
Prior to the 7 pm meeting, council will meet in closed session at five, to discuss items under section 90.1 of the Community Charter.

All items on the agenda for the evening of civic governance can be viewed from the City's website.
