Busy Night for City Council

Monday, May 30, 2016 @ 5:57 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  In addition to  voting on  the  proposed bike lane plan ( see other story), this evening’s meeting  of Prince George City Council will deal with  everything from a new transit agreement, to  several  public hearings.

The agreement with BC Transit for the 2016/17  year  will see the City’s share pf  the cost increase  but there  is no  indication on  how that increase will translate to  transit fares.

Two presentations will be made, one  by the Tabor Mountain Recreation Society, the other by Fortis BC.   Both are  overviews and updates on activities.

Public hearings include  rezoning applications for:

-property  on Boundary Road to allow for  industrial development

-property at  15th and Ahbau to  allow for a multi family  residential development

-property on Vanier Drive  to  allow for a mixed use development

Solid Waste Services will present a report outlining the  decision to  eliminate commercial  garbage pick up  in the City.  The last commercial pick up  will be September 2nd. ( see previous story)

Council will also consider  the development of a Standards of Maintenance  bylaw which is aimed at making  sure  tenants have  safe, healthy  accommodation  by   making  landlords address building maintenance  in  a timely manner.
