Victoria city council takes a breather

From now until the municipal election Nov. 19, all meetings have been cancelled, including council and subcommittee meetings

Councillors in Victoria and Saanich are getting some time off for their election campaigns.

As of today (Oct. 28), Victoria’s mayor and eight councillors are on a holiday of sorts, at least from their meeting schedule at City Hall.

From now until the municipal election Nov. 19, all meetings have been cancelled, including council and subcommittee meetings.

After the election, their schedule for the remainder of 2011 continues to be pretty light.

A Nov. 24 council meeting wraps up the three-year term, and the inaugural meeting of the newly elected council takes place Dec. 8.

The real work begins Dec. 15, with a full schedule of meetings, and then it’s Christmas break.

Saanich council meetings are on a similar hiatus, with no scheduled meetings between Oct. 26 and Nov. 28.

In Oak Bay and Esquimalt, it’s business as usual. Meetings are scheduled in both municipalities each Monday between now and Nov. 21.
