recent week long trek to the UBCM convention floor.
Council has a rather light agenda ready for review for the final public meeting of September, though not before they meet once again in Special session, closed to the public where they will consider a number of items as outlined in their public advisory.
Once they have addressed those items of the Closed session, Council will reconvene at 7 PM for the public portion of the night, the full agenda of which you can review here.
Tonight's session features both a Regular City Council session and one of the Committee of the Whole, once they take care of the housekeeping items of adoption of past minutes and other items of the usual routine, Council will explore a number of themes on the night.
Among the work ahead for Council, receiving reports on Property Tax Exemptions for the Museum of Northern British Columbia and Pillsbury House.
They will also explore some of the details on the process ahead for the Alternate Approval Process on the Loan Authorization Bylaw regarding the loan for the Prince Rupert Airport and consider a request from Port Edward Council, seeking the City of Prince Rupert's support in a bid to have the North Pacific Cannery Historical Site as a UNESCO World Heritage Site
