Meetings of the Committee of the Whole, Peace River Regional Hospital District and Peace River Regional District Boards will be held beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 2, 2023 at the PRRD Office Boardroom located at 1981 Alaska Avenue in Dawson Creek, BC. Agendas may be viewed on the PRRD’s web page at www.prrd.bc.ca/agendas-minutes/
The Regional District understands that many people may not wish to attend in person, and has put in place additional processes to allow the public to continue to ‘be in the know’ about what’s happening at the Board meetings. Meetings are livestreamed via Facebook, and posted online after the meeting in case you miss it.
The PRRD will accept gallery questions and comments from the public, via email in advance, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your comments and your name will be read out loud during the Gallery Questions and Comments portion of the meeting. Gallery comments are limited to items on the agenda, and each person has up to two minutes to share their views or pose questions for the Board’s consideration.
Please continue to watch the Board meetings livestreamed over Facebook:
