Prince Rupert Council gives final approval to Transit Fare Increases

Considering in recent weeks the usual running time for a Prince Rupert City Council session has been close to two hours, Wednesday's Special Council session may perhaps one day be listed in the record books as the shortest session of municipal governance for the year.

All Council members with the exception of Councillor Joy Thorkelson participated in Wednesday's 5 PM meeting, using sixty seconds of the two minutes and fifteen seconds of the session, to give final approval to some Fare increases for Prince Rupert Transit.

The short meeting was required owing to requirements from BC Transit when it comes to route planning and information material to be delivered in time for the May 1st date that the fare increases will go into effect.

For the record, the video presentation of Wednesday's public session can be found below.

Council then adjourned from their public gathering and went into a Closed session, which excluded the public.

Those discussions marked the third such meeting behind closed doors of the year so far.
