Council’s Last Meeting of 2016

Monday, December 19, 2016 @ 5:59 AM

city hallPrince George, B.C. –  Mayor and council meet  for their regular meeting this evening and  it will be their last meeting of 2016.

The agenda is fairly light,  with one formal hearing  to  discuss a proposed  subdivision  in the Hart, just north  of Chief Lake Road.

Council will also  be  asked to give staff the go ahead to launch a Local Area Service petition   for the installation of sewer service to  the  last  part of  the Hart Highlands not yet on  the sewer system.  There are 106 homes  on Poyner,  Montgomery, Glenngarry,  Langley Crescent, Carlton Lane, Killarney Drive  and portions of Croft and Winslow.  The  early estimate of the total cost of the project  ranges  from $2.3 to $2.8 million dollars.  If  the  majority of   property  owners,  representing  more than 50%  of the assessed values in the  area say yes,   then  they  would  each  have to pay $22 thousand to $27 thousand  dollars  in the form of a special  tax levy  spread over 20 years.

The  Community Association strategy will be  presented,  and calls for  Council to approve some  recommendations to assist  Community Associations  over come  the challenges they have been facing.  Community Associations provide a numer of services to their  neighbourhoods,  but have been  challenged  with  finding  volunteers and   attracting  residents to be part of their boards.

Council will also be asked to approve  $50 thousand dollars for the  City of  Prince George’s  2017 contribution to the enhanced  B.C. Transit service along  the Highway 16 corridor.



I am surprised their isn’t a pay raise on the slate as well.
Then maybe there is but it is a secret…shhhhhhhhh

If the hotel downtown can get a free interest loan…how about the taxpayers who are doomed with sewer in Hart Highlands get the same interest loan?
