 Mayor Appointed to TransLink Mayors’ Council Finance Committee

 PITT MEADOWS, BC: Mayor John Becker was appointed this week to the Mayors’ Council Finance Committee of TransLink, joining several mayors from around the region. Formerly the Joint Transportation Planning and Funding Committee, the new committee is a new proposed structure yet to be finalized this month.

 “Transportation is a key issue for Pitt Meadows residents, and I’m pleased to be able to serve the region on this committee,” Becker said.

 “We have a lot of work before us, and I know my colleagues and I are prepared to hit the ground running to work on fiscal planning for getting people around the Lower Mainland.”

 Although the new committee structure won’t be considered until the January 25 meeting of the Mayors’ Council, given the urgency of the business before this committee, they will proceed with a first meeting under the auspices of the existing committee, with the newly appointed members.
