City Council, Monday, May 16, 2022, 7pm

Updated: Jan 5

Recognition of the Maple Ridge Secondary School Junior Girls Basketball Team, plus a presentation from the MacLaren Art Centre. It looks like another long night, BUT most of the items were already approved on consent, so not likely to bring on much debate. There is one direct motion to authorize a contract to receive funding from the Tourism Relief Fund.

ON LEAVE: Lehman
