CAMPBELL RIVER B.C.-Campbell River city council has received its final quarterly report for 2017.
Council got the document, which runs from October 1st to December 31st, at Monday’s meeting. It showed that the city accomplished much of its work plan last year.
Of the 142 approved projects, 83 were finished with 49 of the remaining being in-progress, multiple year projects. 10 were cancelled or delayed due to a focus on other emerging areas or because new information on them came to light. That includes Campbell River’s Water Supply project, which will be finished after five years of work, in 2018.
Key projects that were finished last year included the first phase of CRadvantage, the downtown municipal broadband initiative, and online booking for recreation services and program management.
The city says revenues were at 106 per cent of what was expected, and that actual expenses came in at 95 per cent of budget.
