Briefs from the July 28 Revelstoke council meeting

Council had a busy agenda last Tuesday, July 28. Here's a quick synopsis of what was on their plate.

Council had a busy agenda last Tuesday, July 28. Here’s a quick synopsis of what was on their plate:

— A request to annex a property near Revelstoke Mountain Resort into the city has reached the electoral approval level. The so-called treehouse-hotel property, which is owned by David Evans, is up for annexation unless 10 per cent of electors opposed the request. Evans has asked to join the city in order to access sewer and water services. If you’re against it, you have until Sept. 30 at 4 p.m. to let city hall know.

— Council approved the granting of a contract to the MMM Group to develop a Stormwater Management Pan. MMM was the lone proponent to submit a proposal, and a report from city engineer Mike Thomas said it met all of the city’s requirements, as well as their budget. MMM produced the report on the Big Eddy Waterworks earlier this year.

— A public hearing has been set for the proposed Trans-Canada Highway shopping centre development. The hearing will take place in council chambers on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 3 p.m., and the public can make input in writing until then, or at the hearing.

— A public hearing on new backyard chicken regulations is set for Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 3 p.m. in council chambers.

— The Revy Riders will receive $15,000 from the Economic Opportunity Fund to build a new trail, as well as a grant-in-aid of $1,522.74 to offset its property taxes.

— The Revelstoke Grizzlies received approval to expand the beer gardens to take up half the stands at the Forum durig hockey games this winter, but the capacity will be limited to 250 people.

— The public nuisance bylaw was adopted by council. It calls for a $500 fine for people who get into fights, urinate, or are excessively loud in public.

— In a bit of housekeeping, the City of Revelstoke abandoned several bylaws relating to dropped development and re-zoning applications. They also got rid of a few outdated polices, including one that said every new councillor was entitled to a blazer and pants or skirt.
