Council only spends one-third of its contingency fund

Information detailing the use of the Prince George city council contingency funding for the 2023 calendar year was presented to council Monday. The report shows that in 2023, council contingency was set at $75,000, and at year end there was $25,818 left unspent. Unspent funds do not carry forward and are absorbed into the city’s surplus at year-end.

The funds were used last year towards the Inspiring Women Amongst Us event at UNBC ($7,500), a ‘Home of the Rocky Mountain Rangers’ road sign ($3,382) and $20,000 for a one-time micro grant in partnership with the Downtown Business Association following the downtown building explosion.

The original budgeted cost for the Rocky Mountain Rangers sign of $15,000 was based on an estimate for contracted services however, staff were able to complete the work in-house.
