PRRD sets 2021 board meeting schedule

The Peace River Regional Directors have set a 2021 board meeting schedule - and will finally return to Fort St. John in June 2021 after more than year away.

Board Meetings are scheduled on the second and fourth Thursday of the month whenever possible, with longer periods between some meetings due to statutory holidays, conferences, and more. While one meeting per month is proposed for the months of June to September, Dawson Creek mayor Dale Bumstead suggested a pair of meetings in June.

Although Board Meetings have historically been scheduled to be held in Fort St. John each quarter, all meetings were relocated to the PRRD Boardroom in Dawson Creek in 2020 to accommodate COVID-19 safety measures and related technological requirements.

As the PRRD Boardroom in Dawson Creek is equipped to accommodate virtual presentations and has physical distancing safeguards in place, it is proposed that quarterly meetings resume in Fort St. John in June 2021. Consideration was given to annual conferences such as UBCM, FCM, BC Natural Resources Forum, and others, though not all conflicts were avoided. Alternate Directors may be called to attend meetings in place of Directors in the case of conflicting schedules.

Fort St. John councillor Tony Zabinsky noted if COVID-19 was still prevalent in September 2021, that perhaps that a pair of meetings be held in September.

Director Karen Goodings said having a second September meeting would be critical.
