Alley art funding approved by council

Council approved a contribution of $5,000 from the Communities in Bloom operating reserve fund for the 2014 Alley Art Mural Mentorship Project.

Council also directed staff to investigate options for long-term sustainable funding for mural programs, in partnership with the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area, by way of a formal funding agreement and Memorandum of Understanding, and report back to a Committee of Whole Council meeting.

Council authorized entering into an agreement with Oasis Leisure Group Inc. for operation of the sports store at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex for a three-year term, effective June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2017, with an option to renew for an additional two-year term from June 1, 2017 to May 31, 2019, providing all terms and conditions of the agreement are adhered to. Oasis Leisure Group has operated the store since 2007.

Council approved a development variance permit for Platform Properties Ltd. requesting to vary part of the sign bylaw to increase the total area of fascia sign from one square metre to 1.35 square metre per one metre of building frontage, for the proposed “SportChek” sign at 710-1185 Prosperity Way.
