City Council Preview, Monday, April 24, 2017

For the first time in a while, the City Council Agenda offers up a fairly expansive range of items for consideration by Prince Rupert's elected officials.

When Council members gather on Monday evening at 7PM, they'll be reviewing a list of items that includes changes to the Airport Board makeup, a proposed new Seniors Housing development and they will also move forward with the final approval process for the city's Financial plan and Tax Bylaw requirements for 2017.

You can review the background documentation for tonight's Regular Session from the Agenda Package here.

As it is also a Committee of the Whole night, the public will have opportunity to ask questions of Council members at Monday's session, the first such opportunity since the end of February.
