FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Fort St. John City Council voted in favour of adopting the Five Year Financial Plan Bylaw at Monday’s Council meeting.

The Five Year Financial plan includes the City’s 2018 Capital and Operating Budgets, drafts of which were originally presented to council last November and in January respectively. The City also hosted a public meeting about the two budgets on February 13th, which was attended by two members of the public.

Council voted in favour of awarding a contract for the design of renovations to the City’s Public Works and Grounds buildings to Vancouver-based Carscadden Stokes McDonald Architects for $134,800. Though Fort St. John-based architectural firm Gridline Projects Inc. submitted a bid that was $24,800 lower, the staff report recommended the second-lowest bid from Carscadden, since Gridline was not as experienced as the Vancouver firm, and its submission was actually incomplete.

Council also voted in favour of supporting the applications of two local non-profits in their bids to receive BC Hydro GO Fund grants. Both the Fort St. John and Area Senior’s Care Foundation and the Engage Sport North Society are applying for $10,000 grants from NDIT, which administers the GO Fund on behalf of Hydro. The Seniors Care Foundation says it plans to use the money to expand its Meals on Wheels program. Engage Sport, which runs a sports discovery program in Prince George, wants to expand to Fort St. John, Chetwynd, and other areas in the Peace River Regional District.
