Oak Bay council postpones

Meeting will be held on Wednesday instead

Oak Bay council set for tonight is postponed as snow accumulates across Greater Victoria.

The Feb. 11 meeting scheduled to start at 7 p.m., has been moved to Feb. 13 at 7 p.m.

“It’s very rare for us to cancel a meeting, but it’s better to give the public a chance to make it,” said Oak Bay Mayor Kevin Murdoch.

The Heritage Commission is still scheduled to meet tomorrow, Feb. 12 at 5 p.m. Murdoch says they will try to keep that meeting as schedule if they can. He said it will be up to the commission’s chair and staff to make the final decision.
