Meets in Electoral Area B
Powell River Regional District board held its August 24 meeting at the local government’s McCausland Road maintenance yard in Electoral Area B. In a bid to encourage more interest from residents, the regional district rotates the location of its August meeting throughout each electoral area. Only two residents were present to observe the latest meeting, one from Electoral Area A and one from City of Powell River.

The board approved a $2,000 increase for the budget, from $25,000 to $27,000, to purchase a low-emissions vehicle for administrator use. It also approved borrowing $22,000 from the Municipal Finance Authority of BC. The short-term loan will be paid back from 2018 to 2021.
