Final day for Local Government sessions in Prince George
With delegates arriving in Northern British Columbia's largest city to take part in the North Central Local Government sessions for 2015.
Since Wednesday, local government officials, as well as some from the provincial government and opposition have been meeting in a number of sessions to discuss issues of local interest to communities across the Northern reach of the province.
Also on the agenda for delegates were a working list of resolutions to vote on during their time in Prince George.
As we outlined on the blog back in April, a number of Northwest communities had provided for some of the content for those resolutions, though for this year the City of Prince Rupert offered up on contribution to the items for discussion.
You can review the work of the delegates on those resolutions here, more background on the work of the delegates can be examined from this report from the NCLGA.
You can get a snapshot of some of the events that kept the delegates occupied since Wednesday from this agenda listing, the three day conference comes to an end later this afternoon.
The final official event of the conference addresses from Provincial Ministers Shirley Bond and Coralee Oakes. The host committee will then offer up their farewells to put a wrap on the event for this year.
The NCLGA was established in 1955 and brings together local government officials from across the region to discuss and share ideas related to the challenges that each of their communities face and to find ways to solve common issues.
