City Council highlights

Alaska Highway Corridor historic designation

Plans to have the Alaska Highway Corridor designated a historic site will be referred to the Tourism Board. Proponents will have the chance to speak on the issue sometime within the next two years.

Miss World Canada

Michelle Apples, Fort St. John's Miss World Canada contestant, will not be receiving any funding from the City. Council denied her request Monday.
Councillor Don Davies recommended Apples be sent a package of Fort St. John memorabilia like pins, pens and a jacket, but City staff said she had already availed herself of these items at the City's visitor centre.

Healthy vending machines

The Pomeroy Sports Centre, North Peace Arena and Kid's Arena Field House will be getting machines that vend healthy snacks and may take debit and credit cards.

Elections at the Pomeroy

The Pomeroy Sport Centre will lower its fee for the provincial government to use the space for elections in May. Councillor Byron Stewart wondered why the City would give the province a break and why other locations in the city who likely needed the money couldn't host, but City Manager Dianne Hunter said the ease of access and visibility of the site encouraged voting. She added the provincial government contributed largely to the Pomeroy's construction. Hunter said the election should not impact the walking track nor incur any intrusive costs for the city.
