Capital projects on display and looking for approval from Prince Rupert City Council

It's Presentation Day at City Council, like the days not far removed from high school and that one final chance to impress the teacher with your work on the year.

This afternoon, the heads of a number of civic departments will parade through City Council chambers, providing a snapshot of their hopes and plans for Capital Spending in 2022.

Mayor Lee Brain introduced the plan for a Presentation Day at last week's Council session, setting 3PM this afternoon for the process.

As part of the work on the day, Council will then make the final decisions on the spending plans at the Special Regular Council session called for 7PM, one which also puts the bow and holiday wrapping on a range of increased civic fees and charges for 2022.

This afternoon's review of spending proposals features Fire, Policing, Operations, Recreation and some of the high profile Vision projects that Council has introduced in the last year or so.

Included in the notes for today, spending towards the CN Revitalization project and the plans for Improvements to the Waterfront including the relocation of the Airport Ferry Dock to the Kwinitsa area.

As for the 3PM Festival of hopeful spending, the summary of Requests for the year ahead looks as follows:
