At the council meeting, the Mayor was thanked for attending the Arts infrastructure planning evening workshop and the Rotary Club luncheon, where Community groups were granted thousands of dollars for various projects. The council was also briefed on events over the weekend involving a failed lift station, and the exceptional community response, with people offering their equipment, time, and treats to crews, which limited the amount of time the failure was happening. The council motioned to close the meeting due to potential litigation or personnel matters.

French thanks mayor Hereford the Squamish Arts hosted an Arts infrastructure planning evening workshop on Thursday January the 5th mayor you were in attendance at the event along with counselors Anderson Stoner and Pettingill so Council was very well represented that night and it was well represented or well attended by Arts enthusiasts as well there's some great discussion about the future of Arts in our community and I think that Squamish Arts is on track to move boldly into the future with what I think is going to be a solid plan it's off to a great start and I also wanted to note that the Rotary Club invited members of council to the group's weekly luncheon on Thursday January 12th again mayor Hereford was there with councilors Anderson Greenlawn myself it was a great meeting to attend because a few Community groups were granted thousands of dollars Medicare got money or met a car rather got money to continue driving Squamish residents to medical appointments in both Vancouver and Whistler Under One Roof was granted money and the Squamish Senior Center Society received a grant to fund the replacement of natural grass at the Lawn Bowling facility with artificial turf so a pretty significant amount of money was dueled out and I didn't make a note of the exact amounts but it was north of 30 000 no forty thousand dollars anyway a lot of money and lunch was good too I got fined I had to pay money anyway thanks mayor

thank you for that I don't counselor French touched on some events that I was able to attend along with and councilor French was at those so I'm going to focus my comments on what happened over the over the weekend and over the weekend we saw we did we did see a failure with a lift station and what I really want to highlight is the is the community's response to that challenge that we were that we were experiencing we had exceptional work from our from our staff to not only communicate out what the what was happening but what actions we required from the community to mitigate the impact of that to our to the environment as well as the our Public Works team that was tasked with sort of getting us back operational and the response from the community to those asks were great to see and it wasn't just you know for some people that was simply you know delaying something that required some putting off doing some laundry which is maybe an easy enough thing to do and for other and for other members of the community it was um it involved them stepping up and offering their equipment as contractors or their time or even bringing treats to our crews that are working throughout the night to ensure that we're back operational so we did have some there's many aspects of this that were that we worked really hard to avoid namely the having to spill into the to the into the Estuary but it was the actions of the entire Community not just our staff that got it that were able to limit how long that was that was happening for and get us back and running and I think this really goes to coming together in a time in a time of need and recognizing what we can do individually to help the overall so I was very happy to see that that's the response we had from our community and that we're back in running now and I think it speaks to how ready and how adaptable our staff can be as curveballs get thrown at us so I'm very appreciative of that and thank you to everyone involved in getting us back online and with that we're interested in a motion to close and the staff recommendations that the meeting be close to public in consideration of pursuant to section 90 of the Community Charter subsection 1G which allows us to close for reasons of litigation potential litigation or Personnel matters affecting the municipality so with that could have a motion to close please counselor Stoner and counselor pettingell all in favor motion carries and will recess for 15 or so to allow the room to close down and we'll come back and rejoining the close thank you so much everybody
