Council giving thought to joining Northwest Alliance Initiative

Prince Rupert council has seemingly been watching with interest as communities to the east have started to collaborate on efforts to seek out revenue sharing opportunities, particularly when it comes to ongoing development projects in the region.

At Monday's Council session, Mayor Jack Mussallem outlined some items of interest from his recent meeting with members of  of the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District.

At that session, he discussed their efforts on provincial revenue sharing with local government and heard an update on their Northwest BC Resource Benefits Alliance Initiative.

The Mayor observed that the latter was a project which the City had some interest in and that the City was giving consideration into becoming a community partner with that initiative.

In his closing thoughts on the session with his counterparts from Kitimat-Stikine, the Mayor advised that Council would be receiving a report on that initiative for further consideration in the future.

His talking points on the initiative can be found from the City's Video Archive they start at the 28 minute mark.

Some background on those efforts in the Kitimat-Stikine area can be found below:
