MEDIA RELEASE: GRAND FORKS CITY COUNCIL MAKES SOME HARD DECISIONS IN ORDER TO MAKE ASSET MANAGEMENT A PRIORITY10 Sep 2015/in Public Notices /by GF Webmaster
In 2011 the City of Grand Forks recognized the organization was facing very real financial challenges and has since made a commitment to asset management that will help put the City in a sustainable financial position.
An Asset Management Investment Plan was developed that identified the significant financial gaps that exist within the organization, while recognizing ways in which the financial sustainability could be significantly improved without over burdening tax payers. This means that Council is committed to achieving financial sustainability in several different ways so that Grand Forks remains an affordable place to live.
As residents of parts of Christina Lake and the City of Grand Forks prepare to leave the area in the case of an evacuation order, so too does the Public Works department and School District 51 bus yard. Members of the public may have noticed that school district buses have been moved to Hutton Elementary School and City of Grand Forks trucks and some equipment have been moved to James Donaldson Park.
The move is due to the evacuation alert that was initiated on Wednesday August 26th by the RDKB EOC for parts of the Grand Forks and Christina Lake areas. Both the School District bus yard and the City’s Public Works building are located in the evacuation alert areas. The move is a precautionary measure only.
