Metro Vancouver elected representatives voted to support the WBM Express in October 2011
Waste Management Committee Moved Quickly to Facilitate Funding Request by Water Balance Model Partnership
When the Metro Vancouver Waste Management Committee (WMC) met in September 2011, it received a request from the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC to co-fund development of the Water Balance Model Express for Landowners. The action item resulting from the discussion was a recommendation from the Regional Engineers Advisory Committee (REAC).
When the WMC met in October 2011, the recommendation from REAC to support the funding request was introduced as on-table item.
“The recommendation by REAC provided the Waste Management Committee with what we needed to keep the process moving forward,” stated (former) West Vancouver Mayor Pamela Goldsmith-Jones. “We voted to support the request for a $50,000 grant and our next step was to refer the request to the Metro Vancouver Regional Board for their consideration.” The Board approved the request a week later on October 19, 2011.
