Kitimat City Council meets tonight for their Regular Meeting of Council. Guess what, the Enbridge Plebiscite topic has made the agenda again. The meeting begins at 7:30 in the Council Chambers at the College.

There are 7 presentations. The first is from Al Marleau with a travel grant request. Stuart McFadden wants to talk about a zoning amendment on Kingfisher. Mary Ellen Proctor from Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club is asking for a travel grant request. Finally, Duncan Peacock is saying thanks for the support.

Then come three Enbridge Presentations from Douglas Channel Watch’s Cheryl Brown, Dave Shannon and Murray Minchin.

After minutes, there are two motions. The first comes from Councillor Mario Feldhoff. The first is to amend the Viewpoint Apartment Renovation Development Permit and the other is to add additional campsites at Hirsh Creek.

Under Bylaws, there is adoptions of the sewer user fees amendment bylaw, 3rd reading of the Leisure service fees and chargers amendment bylaw, 1st reading of a zoning amendment for 1851 Kingfisher street and the 3rd reading for Crossroads Dormitory.

Under reports, there is Al Marleau’s travel grant request, no charge admission to people who have a Gym Works Card, the grant request for Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club, a request for a letter of support for the Child Development Centre and the statement of accounts for March 2014.

Seems that now everybody with a need to travel appears in front of the council for a grant (taxpayer) money.
You hardly see any organization raise money anymore, not when you can get it for nothing at the council, especially in an election year.
My suggestion is raise the money your self and maybe the council can match it up to $500
but for kids only.

Since when does the District provide Travel Grant requests? I thought those were for youth?
