Notes from City Hall

Council Meeting Schedule

The City of Kimberley council’s Committee-of-the-Whole meeting scheduled for Monday, December 16, is being replaced with a Special Meeting of Council. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in Council Chambers upstairs at City Hall. The public is welcome to attend.

Child Care Gap Analysis and Action Plan

The city would like to thank all those individuals who provided their voice in the creation of the Child Care Gap Analysis and Action Plan. The completed plan is available on the city website.

Tax Relief for Businesses

The ‘Kimberley Investment Incentive Program’ provides opportunities for municipal tax exemption to encourage investment and upgrades to commercial and industrial properties. The program provides tax relief, for a specified term, from 100% of the increase in the municipal portion of property taxes resulting from the increased property value after a commercial, mixed residential-commercial, or industrial project is completed. Brownfield projects are also eligible for relief from 100% of the municipal portion of property taxes while a project involving environmental investigation or remediation activity is in progress. Visit our website or contact the Planning Department at 250-427-9665 or [email protected] for more details.

Civic Centre/Marysville Arena Update

The Civic Centre walking track is a great way to keep active rain, snow or shine. Keep track of your laps because 5 laps equal one kilometer! The track is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, excluding statutory holidays. Civic Centre Access Cards are available at City Hall for a one-time fee of $5.

Public, Parent and Tot, and Senior skating at the Civic Centre and Marysville Arena is in full swing!

To view the new Public Skating Schedule and to keep up to date on any changes and/or cancellations to the Public Skating schedule please visit our website. If you have any questions, please call the Operations Desk at 250-427-9660.

Road Closure on Knighton Road between 103 Avenue and 104 Avenue

A permanent closure of a small portion of Knighton Road between 103 Ave. and 104 Ave. will be completed in the coming weeks. Eliminating this redundant section of the road will result in improved traffic movement through the area. Please pay attention to all road signs and barriers.

Free Family Swim

Come to the Aquatic Centre and enjoy a Free Family Swim on Wednesday, December 18 from 6 to 7 p.m. sponsored by the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary. Remember, during family swim, persons 18 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult in the water.
