The Nelson Downtown Waterfront Plan was put forward to make improvements and a direct connection from downtown to the waterfront
Not a very popular topic, but as most people know July is when property taxes are due.
In getting ready for spring in the city, council is looking at ways to improve Nelson's downtown core.
Council has a lot of issues to deal with, such as the budget, climate change and many bylaws to update.
Now that the holiday season has arrived, hopefully most residents will stay home to do their shopping in Nelson.
With winter approaching, we will be reviewing the city budget for 2013.
It has been a great summer and everything seems to be going well in the City.
Council has dealt with a couple of controversial issues recently
Nelson is known in BC, across Canada and internationally for the beautiful heritage buildings on Baker Street and in the downtown core.
In the last few weeks, a couple of issues have come to the attention of council.
I will have to get up to speed on the status of our current budget discussions.
With many municipalities in the province having difficultly balancing budgets, Nelson is no exception. One of the budget costs overruns for the city budget of 2010 was Nelson Transit.
Local government can step up by making government-run buildings smoke free zones like at the Nelson and District Community Complex, Robin Cherbo writes.
Whether to install water meters or not to install water meters, that is the question
As in previous years, we are presenting the city budget for 2011 with some cost projections into the future, a difficult process along with pressure to reduce taxes and at the same time maintain current public service levels for the city.
