Powell River Kings receive top-up from community forest

Funds cover completion of concession counter project

Powell River Kings Hockey Club Society will be receiving an extra $2,000 from the spring 2020 Powell River Community Forest grant.

At the City of Powell River Council meeting on June 24, chief financial officer Adam Langenmaier said the spring 2020 grant was sent out to recipients and a call was received from the Powell River Kings indicating the hockey club had applied for a $6,562.50 grant and only received $4,562.50. The money was needed as a top-up to complete the club’s concession counter project approved in the fall of 2019.

Langenmaier said he contacted community forest president Greg Hemphill and they reviewed the application, realizing it was a typo that led to the grant being reduced.

“In this case, it was just an error,” said Langenmaier.

“Council is the only body that can authorize funds to come out of the community forest reserve,” he added. “The community forest board has provided a recommendation to increase the Powell River Kings society grant from $4,562.50 up to $6,562.50.”

Council voted to increase the grant by $2,000.

According to a report to council from Langenmaier, there is $2,310,997 remaining in the Powell River Community Forest reserve for future grants.
