Kitimat Council on April 2nd began, as usual, with Mayor Joanne Monaghan’s good news. She welcomed Northern Sentinel Reporter, Cameron Orr back to the community.
“It’s been a really full weekend of events,” said Monaghan.
She talked about the opening Clague Mountain’s, the Multicultural Dinner and the Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence awards. Kitimat received a plaque for sponsoring the Community Booster Award.
“There has been a rumour around recently that Apache is stopping their working for a year and I talked to the CEO, Tim Wall, yesterday and he assured me that that was not true,” said Monaghan.
She explained the first phase of dismantling Methanex came to an end. The new contract will be going out this week for cement.
“Tim Horton’s will be going out for bid shortly and they hope that they get competitive bids. Their goal is to open in October or November of this year,” said Monaghan.
“The Economic Development Department and my phone are like revolving doors with industries constantly calling and wanting to be a part of Kitimat and we’re very happy for that and we’re looking forward to a very good year coming up.”
