First session tonight for new Regional District Board

Tonight makes for the first night of business for the new Regional District Board, with its membership set to take to a fairly short agenda to launch the next four years of Regional Governance.

The night features a report on supplier payments for the month October, as well as a fairly lengthy list of correspondences that could make for conversation among the membership on the night as they gather in the Prince Rupert Boardroom.

Some of the themes of the correspondences include NCLGA nomination information, the latest destinations for EV Charging stations in the region, along with a number of correspondences to the District coming out of UBCM.

Also up for review, how the Board will move forward to appoint a Director for Electoral Area A which is set for nominations for consideration.

The board will also receive a report on the need for some additional funding for the Mainland Recycling Roof Repair work at the Kaien Road facility in Prince Rupert.

Two pieces of internal business will also be reviewed, the first how the weighted voting system will work.  With the latest Census results providing the final population statistics for the region, with a population of 12,300 the presence of Prince Rupert loom large for the District.

As we noted earlier this week, the Prince Rupert representatives will be Mayor Herb Pond and Councillor Barry Cunningham who combined hold 7 voting units on the Board.

As well the rates of pay for the Board members will be reviewed as part of tonight's session.

Tonight's session also relays some background on the 2023 Business Façade Improvement program, which is funded through the Northern Development Initiative Trust. 

You can review the full agenda for their work ahead tonight from the Regional District website.
