Environmental Task Group Report

Council received a report from its Environmental Task Group which contained several recommendations.

Council amended the terms of reference of the Environmental Task Group to broaden  the scope of one of the group's mandates  - to promote landscape boulevards and environmental features, to include businesses and developers in addition to residents and to reference food security rather than food production. 

Council also resolved to receive a presentation at a future Council meeting from Green Teams Canada, which is a currently the largest environmental volunteer group in BC.

Council further resolved to consider providing funding for Green Teams of Canada to hold up to 3 events in 2020, at a cost of $2,000 per event, at its upcoming budget deliberations.

Council extended the term of the Environmental Task Group to December 31, 2020 in order to allow the group to fulfill its mandate.
