This week's District of Port Edward Council session tackled a range of items of note for residents, with the prospect of the development of land on Wildwood Avenue moving forward after the sale of property approved at their Tuesday session.
The approval of the sale included a two year covenant towards a build on the property. In a report to Council, CAO Danielle Myles Wilson noted that the District would accept an offer of $95,000 for the land in question.
Council also discussed how they would approach the 2021 Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention this September, as was the case last September, there will be no travel required by the elected officials and staff members as the annual event will once again be held virtually.
