This evening beginning at 5 pm, City Hall will play host to a doubleheader committee of the whole.
On the docket tonight is immigration and the Merritt Airport.
Merritt’s Communications Manager Will George joined Q101 to discuss the meeting.
“Immigration programs to recruit foreign workers. It’s looking at the BC PNP (provincial nominee program), but more on a federal government. We’re going to have a representative here from the Federal Government, from the immigration department,” said George. “Oftentimes we just talk about the BC PNP program but that’s just one arm of attracting foreign entrepreneurs, as well as foreign workers.”
For the airport, Councillors will have the opportunity to discuss whether they believe the airport celebration held back in June should become an annual event.
“The airport master plan will also be discussed, looking at the direction of the plan and development up there,” added George.
