City Council Preview: Monday, June 14, 2021

We're taking a Break from Blogging over the next ten days or so and with that plan now in motion, we did a little weekend work to provide for our usual coverage of Council themes ahead of the first session for June, we'll catch up with the talking points of our elected municipal officials upon our return.

Monday's council session could be a short evening, with only a few reports of note for Council to consider and comment on. 

Among the areas of note, a report from contract planners iPlan on a property item, the delivery of the 2020 Annual Report and the release of the 2020 Statement of Financial Income.

The City's CFO will also provide the background to the April variance Report.

A chance for council members to share any reports, questions or make any inquiries will bring the evening's work to an end.

With Public Orders still in place towards Social Gathering, a note posted to the Agenda Page for tonight's session continues to note that Council sessions remain for now a remote participation affair, with no members of the public allowed into the Chamber.

"In accordance with current Provincial Orders, scheduled Regular Council Meetings have moved to a remote format for public access. - available on Citywest Cable Channel 10/310, and live streaming at Videos of the City’s Council meetings are also posted to YouTube in the days following the meeting. In the interests of public health and safety, at this time no one will be permitted into City Hall to view in the gallery, in order to ensure we can maintain physical distancing requirements. Staff and Council attendance is also limited, with most calling in via conference. Thank you for your understanding." -- An update on the process ahead for Council sessions from the Agenda Page for Prince Rupert City Council
