Nanaimo City Council Meeting March 14, TODAY

Nanaimo City Council Meeting
Monday March 14, 7:00pm
Democracy Works When The Public Stays Involved
It Is Too Important To Leave To Politicians
If you can attend in person that is the best way to see your business being taken care of, second best is watching on Shaw Cable from the comfort of your easy chair, it is also available live online using this link, and last but not least is reading what the local press says went on.

Archived video is available of previous meetings at the same link used for live online coverage. You have to remember that the newspaper does not print everything that happens in a council meeting, and as a matter of fact, if their reporter dozes off at the wrong time, they might even miss something important. So, watch the meeting for yourself, and get involved with how YOUR city council takes care of YOUR business.

Past councils have been pretty generous with the way they have been spending your money, but don't blame them, YOU are the one who needs to keep on top of what is really going on if you ever hope for your taxes to quit going up every year.Remember taxes are scheduled to increase by nearly 25% in the next four years. If you don't think you can afford another $500 or so, then you need to be more involved with the process.

This should be a very busy and full council meeting with lots of 'meat' on the agenda.The Newcastle & Brechin Neighbourhood Plan looks like a hot topic and you will hear from the Chamber of Commerce regards the creation of an economic development authority. Restrictions to hours of operation of retail businesses in the South End is also on the agenda. I'm sure 7/11 will be watching this one. Changing the liquor licence at the VICC is also up for consideration.
