City Council in Brief

Council dealt with a number of business items at the regular Council meeting on November 22, 2010. Following are some highlights:

·The downtown Christmas tree lighting ceremonies were approved for December 3 – 7 pm at the Legislative Assembly and 8 pm at City Hall.

· A number of new street names were approved as part of the Northrup development off of Brookside Drive: Aiden Street, Benoit Street, Nason Street, Fearneley Street, and Shannon Street.

·The process was begun to restrict parking on Claremont Street and remove parking on the west side of Regent Street, between King and Queen, and on the north side of King Street, between St. John and Regent.(Note: It was incorrectly reported in e-Brief last week that parking would be removed on the south side of King.)

· Efforts also got underway to adjust parking rates in the City of Fredericton and establish new rates for the East End parking garage, which will be open 24/7 and feature a different rate structure than other city owned parking facilities.

·The collective agreement with CUPE Local 1783 (Transit) was approved.

·Two new police officers were appointed. Welcome to Cst. Jerri Beckwith and Cst. Zachery Coady.
