Council endorsed revised Accessibility Award of Merit criteria, as recommended by the Accessibility Advisory Committee, to tighten the Award of Merit criteria, April 3.
It is more concise and easier to complete. The committee recommends that a sub-committee of three members of the Accessibility Advisory Committee review the applications and visit the nominees prior to sending their recommendations to council.
Council also approved changes to the bylaw and its associated application form and application guide for the North End Industrial Tax Exemption, and gave the first three readings to the revised bylaw.
The changes improve clarity of the tax exemption program. The application for the program and the application guide will be posted to the city’s website. Contact: Geoff Goodall at 250-392-1766
