It has been an exciting couple of weekends as Fort St. John welcomed speed skaters from all across Canada for the National Masters Speed Skating Competition, as well as the 2012 Canadian Age Class Long Track Competition. The reaction to our wonderful facility was one of surprise and amazement! We can be very proud of our Pomeroy Sport Centre, which is one of only three covered ovals in Canada.
At a public meeting Monday night, Fort St. John city staff showed a balanced proposed Operating Budget, along with a slight tax increase, to a crowd of about 20 members of the public and fellow city workers. I really enjoyed the wonderful conversations with FSJ residents and appreciated all the questions, ideas, and comments.
