Regional District meets Friday in Charlotte

  • Apr. 14, 2008 5:00 p.m.

The Skeena-Queen Charlotte regional district board will be gathering in Queen Charlotte this Friday evening (April 18) for a public meeting. The board’s monthly meetings are usually held in Prince Rupert, so this is a good opportunity for islanders interested in how the regional district works to attend a meeting close to home. The 10-member board has five representatives from the islands – Masset mayor Barry Pages, Port Clements mayor Cory Delves, Queen Charlotte mayor Carol Kulesha, Area D director Ian Hetman, and Sandspit director Travis Glasman. Mr. Pages is the chair. Besides the islanders, the board also includes Prince Rupert mayor Herb Pond and councillor Tony Briglio, as well as representatives from Port Edward, Dodge Cove and Oona River. The regional district is responsible for running the islands solid waste system (and recently had to raise the rates we pay to deal with cost overruns) and the QCI recreation commission. It also gives annual grants to the three museums on the islands, and is responsible for governing areas which are not incorporated, like Sandspit and the communities of rural Graham Island. The agenda includes a presentation from Synex Energy Resources of Vancouver, which is applying for land and water rights for a small power project on the mainland. The meeting starts at 7 pm Friday in the Eric Ross room, Queen Charlotte community hall.
