Regional district board meets Charlotte next Friday

Islanders who want to view local government in action will have that opportunity next week (Friday, June 20), as the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District board meets in Queen Charlotte.
The regional district board is made up of five representatives from the islands and five from the mainland, and it usually meets in Prince Rupert.
Administrator Janet Beil said Friday’s agenda will include more information about potential 911 service here, and more information about the provincial government’s latest proposal for getting small communities to pay more for police services. The regional district’s solicitor will also be attending the meeting and will lead a discussion on board structure and policy, Ms Beil said.
Four of the five off-island directors are planning to stay overnight on the islands and attend the Hospital Day celebrations Saturday in Queen Charlotte.
Masset mayor Barry Pages will chair the meeting, as chair Ed Wampler of Port Edward is ill and won’t be able to attend, Ms Beil said. The meeting will be held at the Queen Charlotte management committee office, starting at 7:30 pm.
