Specifically, Council supports Delta participating as a Third Party in the appeal of GFL’s Air Quality Permit.

Delta Receives ICBC Cost-share Funding for Ten Projects

Council approved the provision of cost-share funding from ICBC in the amount of $157,000 for ten road, traffic signal and crosswalk improvement projects. This funding is part of ICBC’s Road Improvement Program, which provides funding to municipalities for capital projects that could reduce the frequency and/or severity of crashes by improving road safety.

Delta Waives Fees for North Delta Homes Damaged by Fires

Mayor Jackson put forward a motion to assist residents that experienced damage to their homes from the fires that occurred in July 2018. The motion was unanimously endorsed by Council and resolved that any municipal permits needed for house reconstruction or repair due to weather-related fire damage be expedited and municipal fees not covered by insurance, waived for impacted North Delta residents.

Residents that qualify for this initiative are requested to advise City staff when making their application, to help ensure that permits are expedited and fees waived. As well, homeowners that have already paid permit or inspection fees can seek a refund by contacting the Community Planning and Development Department.
