For the record – Climate Action Reserve Fund

A correction regarding a quote which appeared in story in the Aug. 7 Gazette.

For the Record:

In the Aug. 7 Grand Forks Gazette in the article on page 3, Council receives report on climate reserve fund, Coun. Bob Kendel was quoted as saying, “Up until now we have sent our penalty dollars to the Darkwoods Trust Fund.”

In fact, the money collected for the 2012 carbon tax agreement from the City of Grand Forks has not been sent to the Darkwoods Project Trust Fund.

At the May 21 regular council meeting, Grand Forks council rescinded an earlier resolution to submit the city’s carbon offset for 2012 towards the Darkwoods Project Trust Fund.

Also at the May 21 regular council meeting, Grand Forks council approved the establishment of the Climate Action Reserve Fund.

Bylaw 1989, which establishes the Climate Action Reserve Fund, was voted upon at the Aug. 19 regular council meeting.

The motion passed three readings at the meeting, with final reading and adoption set to come at the next council meeting Sept. 30.
