Federation of Canadian Municipalities travel
Council voted to authorize one or more members to travel to Halifax, Nova Scotia to attend the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Annual Conference. The approximate cost per delegate will be $3,720. The cost includes a $960 conference registration fee.
The city will be purchasing a quarter page ad in the Kootenay Robusters Dragon Boat team’s 2019 calendar at the cost of $250. The expense will come from the 2018 advertising budget.
Council approved submitting a grant application to the Columbia Basin Trust Affordable Housing Program. The funding would help pay for a community housing needs assessment. If the grant is successful, the city would hire a consultant to perform the assessment.
The project is expected to cost $20,000 and the city would have to pay 25 per cent or approximately $5,000 of the costs.
