City Council approved the waiving of the land lease fees for Thompson Trailbreakers, the Heritage North Museum, and the Thompson Wildlife Association at the last regular meeting of council.

 

Councillor Judy Kolada Voted in favour, saying that organizations like these are important to the quality of life in Thompson.

 

She said that Council needs to show their support for quality of life organizations as they will help retain citizens.

The vote passed 7-2 for each resolution, with Councillors Matechuk and Wong voting against every time.

 

Councillor Matechuk spoke up against the waiving of fees for the Wildlife Association, as the fees are for two properties instead of one, which he said is a little much.

 

Councillor Wong spoke up in opposition, saying that the City shouldn’t be giving things away for free when we’re looking down the barrel of tough economic times.

 

He added that in the future he’d like to see the practice become the waiving of a percentage of the fee instead of the whole. Those thoughts were echoed later by Councillor Kolada.
