Council Meetings of Sept 4, 2018

Tuesday Sept 5 was a busy day for Grand Forks City Council.

They had a Committee Of The Whole meeting at 9AM, and in-camera meeting and then the Regular meeting at 7PM.

Grand Forks Search and Rescue presented during the Delegation part of the meeting.  If you want a good glimpse into what they do and what that takes watching this presentation is a good beginning. Warning Рthere is a distinct possibility you might think of volunteering.

The COTW meeting saw protracted discussion about the proposed Smoking and Vaping bylaw which I wrote about before the meeting. In my article I wondered which councilor(s) asked for this and during the meeting you can hear some councilor’s wondering about that aloud. No one present owned up to it.


The evening meeting dealt with a number of issues. The two burned out houses on Donaldson came up for a Show Cause for Unsightly Premises. Council discussed the Cannabis Delegation issue. And they did have an announcement of the decisions of council regarding Flood Recovery in the verbal report on the Hydrology Report. For some present it was not what they wanted to hear . . .

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.
