City still to make a decision on rent breaks for Civic Centre rentals

No decision yet on  Rent Reduction
Requests for Civic Centre use
One event is over, the other set to take place this weekend, but as of Monday's Prince Rupert City Council session, no indication has been given yet, whether the City will provide the rental breaks requested by two groups in the city.

The issue came up earlier in April, when the organizers of the 2015 Homecoming appeared at Prince Rupert council to outline their thoughts on the cost of rental for the Civic Centre facility and inquired as to the prospect of break on the rent.

Their appearance it seems caught the eye of organizers of the 2015 Charles Hays Prom, with a representative from the organizing committee also making an appearance in front of Council, this time to suggest free rent for this years Grads, as well as for those in the future.

Rent Reduction request
update from City Council

On Monday, Mayor Brain in response to an inquiry from Councillor Randhawa, that no decision has been made in relation to either of those requests, with the issue to be addressed at some future point.
