Comox Valley politicians off to UBCM convention

At the upcoming Union of BC Municipalities convention, Comox council will be sponsoring a resolution which calls on the provincial government to step up efforts to enforce producer compliance under the MMBC (Multi Material BC) recycling regime.

Mayor Paul Ives will attend the Sept. 21-25 gathering in Vancouver, along with Couns. Hugh MacKinnon and Barbara Price.

Courtenay representatives include Mayor Larry Jangula and likely Couns. Manno Theos, Doug Hillian, Erik Eriksson and Bob Wells.

Jangula anticipates discussion about policing contracts, housing and transportation.

“There’s a real irregularity in the Valley about what area pays for policing, what numbers there are and the costs,” he said.

From Cumberland, Mayor Leslie Baird, and Couns. Jesse Ketler and Sean Sullivan will make the trip.

Nearly 2,000 delegates are expected to attend the policy sessions at the 112th annual event.
