November 10th Council Meeting Highlights


Here are some other decisions made at Fort St. John’s City Council meeting last night:

Council received a report about a Community Building Initiative on Anti-Social Behaviour. The city’s administration department was instructed to provide additional information on the Initiative. The initiative was presented as one of the potential solutions to the city’s ongoing vandalism problem.

Council agreed to draft a letter of support for a proposed new taxi service in Fort St. John. The company, called Royal Taxi, says it will aim to eliminate unnecessary wait times for cabs in Fort St. John, particularly at night.

The city proclaimed the week of November 9-15 Elevator Escalator Safety Awareness Week.

The city proclaimed November 14th World Diabetes Day. The day, which occurs on the birthday of Frederick Banting, the Canadian co-discoverer of insulin, is celebrated by the wearing of blue.

Council denied an application by Canadian Utility Construction Corp to rezone a parcel of land at 85th Ave and 68th St. from R4 (single detached, duplex and manufactured housing) to M1 (light industrial). Council directed the company to explore alternative sites for storage of its construction equipment in order to preserve the residential nature of the lands according to the Official Community Plan.
