Council pitches in for trade show and presentation

$4,000 has been approved in sponsorship from the District of Kitimat to a Kitimat Economic Development Association event.

The Kitimat Economic Development Association (KEDA) is putting together a trade show and energy dialogue at Mount Elizabeth Theatre for October 26.

And following a presentation to Kitimat Council they’re pitching in $4,000 to help them get the show up and running.

The event, titled Lets Talk Energy, will be a combined trade show and public speaker, way of Peter Tertzakian, who is an author and energy economist who gives popular talks on energy issues.

Entertainment will be provided as well, in the form of country music artist Aaron Pritchett, who is a former Kitimat resident.

Councillors were fine to provide money to the cause, but had initially waited for a staff report about their options.

If the event was treated as a community grant KEDA would be eligible for just $1,250.

Council had originally moved for an additional $500 donation to KEDA for administration, but was withdrawn after it was determined that $500 for KEDA for administration would come out of the $4,000 offering.

Meanwhile, for the sponsorship the District of Kitimat will be provided a booth during the event’s trade show.
