March 7,2006 Finance

4.1 2006 Operating Budget - continued review
Moved, seconded and CARRIED
THAT Council approve the proposed 2006 5-Year Operating Budget.
Voting Against: Councillor Clay
I voted against this as it contains the provision for hiring a web technician in support of the Smart Choices / City Soup website operations .  As I have repeatedly stated, the smart choices 'deal' is bad for the city and the extra costs will NEVER be recovered under the current business model - the staff report advocates the position on the basis that the position will generate revenue through web hosting sales.  It wont.
Moved, seconded and CARRIED
THAT the 2007 - 2010 Financial Plan be approved.
5.1 Integrated Library System
Moved, seconded and CARRIED

Moved, seconded and CARRIED
THAT Contract PK-2006-001 for Westhill Park Sportsfield Redevelopment be awarded to Cedarcrest Lands (BC) Ltd. for $587,589.11 inclusive of taxes;
