Propane terminal reps brief Port Edward

Representatives from AltaGas briefed District of Port Edward council on the proposed propane export project on Ridley Island. If the environmental review goes through it will be the first propane export site on Canada’s West Coast. On Jan. 20, AltaGas announced an agreement with Ridley Terminals to sub-lease 20-acres to build its own export terminal. “It’s a fabulous site. Most of the infrastructure is already there,” David Markham, Alta Gas representative, said.

The proponent estimates the project will create about 200-250 jobs during the construction phase and 40-50 permanent jobs. Markham said their intention is to hire locally for those positions.

Board appointments announced by city

The City of Prince Rupert has made several appointments for the upcoming term for the Performing Arts Centre Society, the Prince Rupert Airport Authority and the Port Edward Historical Society Board. After reviewing applicants for all three boards and societies, city council appointed Joanne Finlay to the Prince Rupert Performing Arts Centre Society, Don Scott, Gloria Rendell and Kelly Sawchuk to the Prince Rupert Airport Authority and Laurie Davie to the Port Edward Historical Society.

Cow Bay Marina fees passed unanimously

Prince Rupert city council adopted the Cow Bay Marina Fees and Regulations Bylaw No. 3386, 2016 in the March 21 council meeting.

Given first, second and third readings in a previous council session, the bylaw was enacted in large part to develop alternate revenue streams for the city through moorage fees (temporary, seasonal and year-round) and to provide the public with more waterfront access with a breakwater extending into the harbour.
