City of Prince Rupert cancels August council meeting

In the month of August, members of both the Prince Rupert city council and the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District will not be meeting.

In the month of August, members of both the Prince Rupert city council and the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District will not be meeting.

The City only had one regular council meeting scheduled for this month, on August 20. However, on August 14 the city alerted the public that this meeting would not be happening. City Manager Gord Howie says that the meeting was cancelled and rescheduled to take place in September for a number of reasons, the first being that there weren’t enough items to put on the agenda to make the meeting worthwhile. The last council meeting that held on Monday, July 30 lasted less than 45 minutes, which anyone who attends the meetings regularly knows is much shorter than usual.

According to Howie there will also be a number of council members out of town on the day of the meeting, as well as the fact that during August council doesn’t get much communication from the provincial government.

“During the summer months [the council] meet roughly every three weeks instead of every two weeks,” said Howie.

As for the Regional District, there was no scheduled meeting to take place all month.
