City Council Meetings July 17, 2017

It was a busy day in Council with 3 meetings. We bring you two of thee today. The afternoon meeting was about Affordable and Small Housing and will be available at a later date.

First was the Committee Of The Whole in the morning.

Two topics that generated heated discussion were the Fire Risk during the department managers monthly reports and the discussion about the proposed Womens’ Transition House.

The fire risk was heated because of the apparent inability of any level of government to stop a homeless man from starting camp fires in the bush on Observation Mtn. I’ve got an editorial piece on that here. Residents and home owners are very unhappy with this situation.

Certain neighbours of the proposed Transition House oppose the project’s location nearby their properties. Today they argued it doesn’t fit within the zoning regulations.

Regular Meeting

The Regular meeting took less time and was less controversial.
