All fooling aside, Girl Guides are set to swarm Oak Bay April 1 and 8.

Council approved the move as usual for the annual Chatham Girl Guide Cookie Blitz.

Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders – supervised by their unit leaders – plan to stage themselves along Oak Bay Avenue between Wilmot Place and Monterey Avenue both Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Wall of Fame policy

Oak Bay amended its Wall of Fame policy to change the structure of the selection committee.

Rather than being appointed by the mayor and council, the selection committee will now function as a subcommittee of the Parks, Recreation and Culture and will include the commission’s council liaison, the chair of the commission and two representatives selected by the commission.

Mayor approved to attend Oak Bay-hosted caucus

Council approved Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen to attend the 2017 BC Mayors’ Caucus, that wraps up today in Oak Bay.

They also approved any member of council who wishes to attend the 2017 Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities Convention in Campbell River from April 7 to 9.

Tourism addition

Michelle Le Sage, general manager at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel was officially appointed to the Oak Bay Tourism Committee for 2017.

The next council meeting is Monday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. in council chambers at municipal hall, 2167 Oak Bay Ave.
