At 6PM there was a Public Feedback Session where almost none of the public showed up to ask questions or give feedback. The topic was 3 applications by Cannabis retailers.

The evening meeting of council had a few items requiring decisions: capital assets being written off, support of the Grand Forks Fall Fair, and the Dollorama Signage. For Information they got the Crime Stats from the RCMP (though not presented by anyone from the RCMP). And they also heard from some citizens with concerns regarding the Whispers of Hope’s choice of location for the soup kitchen.
