Question period to end White Rock council meetings

White Rock residents with questions for their elected representatives will now have to wait until the end of council meetings to pose their questions.

Council voted unanimously Jan. 28 (with Couns. Helen Fathers and Al Campbell absent) to give final reading to amendments to the city’s Council and Committee Procedure Bylaw that seal the decision.

The shift was proposed to “help streamline” the meetings. In a Jan. 14 report to council, rationale provided for the move was to enable citizens to ask questions pertaining to the preceding meeting.
