Jan. 28 Council Briefs


CDC Month

Council designated February Child Development Centre Month. The Fort St. John CDC is trying to raise $100,000 at their 39th annual talent show this year to help build expansions. The event will be held March 8 at the North Peace Cultural Centre.


High on Ice

There will be no delegation from Dawson Creek to compete in amateur ice sculpting. A Dawson councillor previously committed had to drop out.


Price of water

In light of a flap over water prices at the Peace River Regional District meeting last week, Fort St. John Council reaffirmed its water policies already in place. Any issues with existing water policies must be brought to council for discussion.


Road stays open

A small stretch of lane on 73rd Street, albeit with road allowance, between 87th and 89th avenues will stay open and continue to be maintained. Closing it would limit the capacity of development for holdings companies on adjacent lots – none of which seem to have plans to build but could conceivably do so in the future, said an opponent of the closure.


Oldtimers Hockey Club

The Oldtimers will actually be getting their license for a beer garden at the North Peace Arena to coincide with their annual tournament – so long as they amend their request to open it at 10 a.m. on  the second day, February 9th, and instead open no earlier than 11.


Community Awards

Fort St. John City Council and the Chamber of Commerce will partner to deliver the 2013 Community Awards Celebration. Meant to be an annual partnership, the last five years yielded only one joint effort. The event was cost neutral due to sponsorships and tickets sales. The Chamber told Council a single event hosted together would yield better recognition of award recipients.
