Outside of a long-discussed 4-1 vote, the District of Kent council had a few other items to deal with on its agenda during its meeting on Monday (May 25).
Mayor Sylvia Pranger asked residents in the district to continue being safe and following provincial health protocols as the first wave of coronavirus begins to fade. She further stressed the importance of continuing to shop local whenever possible in an effort to keep the local economy sustained.
Coun. Kerstin Schwichtenberg reported on her meeting with the Fraser Valley Regional Library and said they, too, are developing a re-opening plan amid the pandemic. As of publication, the staff has not yet set a specific date to reopen.
District officials continue to watch this year’s freshet. The Upper Fraser East snowpack remains very high at 133 per cent. The Upper Fraser East area is one of four primarily responsible for supplying much of the Fraser River’s flow. How the flow changes from Upper Fraser East and other areas will depend on the way the weather acts.
The council extended their own congratulations to Dr. Rachel Collins of Agassiz as the Fraser Health region winner of the My Family Doctor award from the B.C. College of Family Physicians.
