The Consent Agenda features reports on Building Department activity and from Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue.

As well there will be a request to support an application to the Local Government Development approvals process fund and a receipt of the January minutes of the Accessibility Committee.

Council will also offer appreciation to the Prince Rupert Children's Festival and review a report on Rotary plan stop become involved in plans for Mariner's Park.

As the Council session comes after numerous Emergency Room Closures, including one today that will not come to an end until 4 PM this afternoon, it's likely that the topic of Health Care in Prince Rupert will make for some discussion during the Council commentary period.

Council members also host a Special Session at 5 PM, along with a session CLOSED to the Public, the details towards that closure for the public are outlined here.   

The Closed session tonight, marks the sixth such session restricted to the public session for 2024.
