City Council to hold Special Council session tonight at 5:30
A notice went up on the City of Prince Rupert website on Tuesday calling attention to two Special Council sessions set to take place tonight at City Hall starting at 5:00PM
The First a Special Regular Council session, though the City's Agenda page offers up no outline as to what topics the Council members may be addressing in their gathering tonight.
A best guess might suggest that it is to deal with some of the motions put forward on Monday evening; particularly towards moving forward with the some of the financial notes and fee changes outlined as part of the last regularly scheduled Council session of the year from Monday.
As well, Council has called another Closed Council Session for 2019 (eighteen of them prior to this evening) this one seemingly to follow the Special Council session, with Council citing a section of the Community Charter as the reason to go behind the closed doors.
90.1 (e) the acquisition, disposition or expropriation of land or improvements, if the council considers that disclosure could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality.
Regardless of the themes, don't expect it to be a lengthy discussion, tonight is the night of the highly promoted Prince Rupert 2030 vision unveiling, so one imagines that the Mayor and Council members will want to be at the Lester Centre in plenty of time for the 7PM presentation.
