Council Meetings of Aug 20, 2018

August 20 was another full day for City Council. First a 2 1/2 hour Committee Of The Whole meeting starting at 9AM. Then an in-camera meeting and finally an evening regular meeting at 7PM.

Two organizations, gallery 2 and the Boundary Museum, came to give their quarterly reports. Watering restrictions (it’s that time of year) were on the agenda as well. The changes to border crossing hours had been on the previous agenda but the Commissioner for Ferry County, Johnna Exner, was unable to make that date (they also faced flooding and wildfire). She did make it this time.

But the topics that generated the most back and forth discussion were a Temporary Use Permit for a Tiny House on Wheels. Remuneration for councilors and the mayor, and whether it should be Council or a Delegate that deals with applications for shops wanting to sell Cannabis.
