Williams Lake Council to look into Indigenous relations resource request

Williams Lake Council will be deciding if they want to move forward with the additional resource request for Indigenous relations.

Staff will be providing more information on a hybrid position, which combines active transportation, climate change and Indigenous relations.

Multiple options were considered before landing on what they felt was a beneficial choice.

“Councillors have gone and tried to establish a relationship and work on that stuff,” says Gary Muraca, Chief Administrative Officer.

“but when we’re talking about actual initiatives and true reconciliation, the City of Williams Lake just didn’t have the resources to facilitate or move any kind of project forward. So when we would apply for a grant, we would need a staff member.”

Staff will look to have the position remain a hybrid until March 2025, when the City will decide if they want to create separate positions.

Talks for the resource request began in late February, in hopes for it to be approved in time for the strategic planning session (March 8th), but fell through due to staffing and lack of time.

Council will make its decision regarding the request on Tuesday, April 18th, and if passed, will look to have the position filled by July.
