Winter Games Finished In the Black
Prince George, B.C. – The 2015 Canada Winters Games wrapped up with a surplus of $200 thousand dollars. The details of the expenditures and the success stories will be part of a presentation to Prince George City Council this evening.
Finances are the focus of this evening’s meeting with not only the report from the Canada Winter Games, but details on the City’s finances as well including the annual report on salaries and expenses ( see previous story).
Annual financial reports will be presented by the Northern Sport Centre, Initiatives Prince George, the Prince George Library and Tourism Prince George.
Council will be asked to approve the questionnaire that will be used to gauge public support for a variety of services and departments. The annual survey is one of the pieces of information used by Council when setting annual budgets.
There will be a call for a change to the permissive tax policy, the change would remove the requirement that a potential tax exempt service has “substantial enrollment” and the requirement that “there are no significant barriers to participation in the program or service”.
