Council has agreed to make $1,000 of their individual, existing budgets available at their own discretion for educational programs related to their duties.

Councillor Randy Halyk cites training for elected officials provided by the Local Government Management Association of British Columbia (LGMA), Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM), Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA).

The councillor argued that while funding does exist in the council budget for education and training, by the time funding is approved for a course, it may be too late to register or it may be finished.

Council has $26,000 available to attend conventions such as the UBCM, the NCLGA and the FCM, and attend training programs.
