Mayor’s Column – September 27, 2017

September 27, 2017   I had the recent pleasure of participating in the Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Business Walk and more recently in handing our Certificates of Congratulation to three recently opened businesses. Both experiences were heart-warming and eye-opening. Thank you to those who took the time from a busy commercial enterprise to answer questions and…

Mayor’s Column – September 20, 2017

September 20, 2017   In case you’ve been wondering… On September 7 and 8 I had the pleasure of representing Chetwynd at the annual Coal and Energy Conference (Energy Through Synergy) held in Tumbler Ridge. (Next year Chetwynd is committed to hosting.) I also had fun while representing you, which seems to indicate that we…

Mayor’s Column – September 13, 2017

September 13, 2017   These last months have impressed on us the vulnerability of our position in an unpredictable world. (I guess some things are predictable in general terms but precision as to month, day, hour, and person is still very much a guess.) Last year Chetwynd and surrounding rural residential areas were hammered by…

Mayor’s Column – August 30, 2017

August 30, 2017   I am discovering a fine line between keeping Chetwynd citizens suitably informed about the progress of the various projects happening in our home town and my ability to craft a column that contains enough new detail to hold your interest. But I’ll do my best. Actually, there are some details that…

Mayor’s Column – August 9, 2017

August 9, 2017   I just returned from a drive about our town and I congratulate you all on the spirit that I see at work here. Chetwynd is busy, not with an aimless coming and going, but with a purposeful, businesslike drive that is the sign of a community that supports and appreciates its…

Mayor’s Column – July 26, 2017

July 26, 2017 On July 17 Council authorized the awarding of a contract to pave the Airport Runway to Peters Brothers. This is one of the major upgrading contracts to be awarded this year. (Peters Brothers will also be doing the street paving this summer.) Selecting the successful bidder for a contract such as this…

Mayor’s Column – July 12, 2017

July 12, 2017   We are into July and the floods have not come. However, this is no cause for relaxing our vigilance and going on vacation. Just kidding about your vacation. You’d better take it because you need it. Paul is on high alert. I am reminded of an ancient teaching about preparation: Don’t…

Mayor’s Column – July 5, 2017

July 5, 2017   In the human experience there are beginnings and there are endings. Most of us have at least a vague idea of the date of our beginnings. Happily, few of us have any accurate sense of the time of our endings. That said, when time has etched deep the lines in our…
