City council approved a funding application to a Union of B.C. Municipalities program to protect archaeological features in the city.
The application is for $2,400, which would be used for a facilitated workshop with the Williams Lake Indian Band. If approved, the funds would come from the UBCM’s 2011/12 Community to Community Forum program.
The purpose of the proposed workshop would be to identify areas of concern, a format for documenting known areas of risk, and a process for advising developers of the need to protect archaeological features and the necessary assessments.
The City and Williams Lake Indian Band would provide matching in-kind value in the form of staff resources and facility rental.

City council has awarded the contract for the supply and installation of traffic signal light modifications at the Third Avenue and Oliver Street intersection to Michael’s Electric HDD.
The contract was awarded for the bid price of $123,117 (net HST).
