City of Powell River Council has adopted the city’s 2019 annual report.
At the September 3 council meeting, director of properties, development and communications Scott Randolph said there were a couple of changes in the version councillors were provided at the meeting. He said the draft councillors were given at the August 18 committee of the whole meeting included the draft consolidated financial statements.
“We’ve now replaced those with the signed and final version of the consolidated financial statements,” said Randolph. “They have been inserted into the document.”
He said there was also a minor change made to the information under a photograph regarding Powell River’s supportive housing development on Joyce Avenue.
Randolph said council had been provided low resolution copies of the document, but high-resolution copies would be made available on the city’s website and in hard copy versions.
According to a report by Randolph to council, one of the purposes of the annual report is to report on objectives and measures of the previous year and include a statement of municipal objectives and measures for the current and next year.
The community charter requires municipal governments to prepare an annual report, make the report available for public inspection and provide an opportunity for public submissions and questions.
Mayor Dave Formosa provided an opportunity for public input at the September 3 council meeting but there was no public feedback on the 2019 annual report.
