The Kitimat City Council Meeting for September 3rd began with Mayor Joanne Monaghan’s good news. She expressed the last two weeks of August were slow.
“I welcomed the forum on Immigrant Employment put on by the Chamber and it was facilitated by our CAO Ron Poole. We met with one of the Helicopter Companies who would like to come into Kitimat and would be an asset for us as an Air Ambulance Service,” said Monaghan.
Monaghan handed out certificates to Alex and Jonathon Orfao for recognizing and getting help with the fire on August 21st. Firefighters taught them Fire Safety at Saint Anthony’s Elementary School and they did the right things including calling 911.
Going into the Fish Derby, Monaghan expressed there were 607 participants and the winner was a 14 pound, 12 ounce Coho caught by Cory Eisenburger. She expressed the weather was perfect for the CAW Picnic and hoped everyone had a good time.
“The big news for tonight is that Doctor Mills has given us a go-ahead to announce that the ground breaking for his medical clinic will be very shortly,” said Monaghan.
She stated things are starting to pick up. Council will be meeting with a Cabinet Minister, Coleman, as well as Northern Health. Thus ended her good news for the night.
