The Committee of the Whole started at 9AM and ended after 2PM. This in spite of one of the four delegations not appearing. Two of the delegations were organizations (Museum and Art Gallery) that receive funding from the city and give quarterly updates.
City Council had only one meeting this past Monday.
It began with Service Awards being handed out to two members of the local Fire Department. The largest item was the Update from the Recovery Manager, Graham Watt.
The Inaugural Meeting of the New Grand Forks, BC, City Council took place in City Hall on Nov 5, 2018 at 7PM.
The gallery was full of well wishers for this first meeting of the new City Council.
This first meeting saw them affirming their choice to stand for council and taking the oath of office. Most of the rest of the meeting was formalities: deciding who will be backup Mayor should the need arise at times, when the meetings will happen and who will represent the city on various external entities such as the Regional District, the Hospital Board and the Flood Recovery team. The only item not actually related to council business was the Liquor License for the Curling Club.
