At a recent Financial Committee meeting, Mayor Formosa put in a good word for the Powell River Historical Museum. Noting that the Museum has many items in storage due to space limitations, Mayor Formosa proposed leasing space at the Town Centre Mall so that the Museum could feature various articles of interest to the public. During the discussion it was noted that the Regional District is considering the Museum as a regional service and has directed Regional staff to look into the proposed service. The Committee also discussed using public space to display local art.
Councillor Brewer advised that as a Municipal Director on the PR Regional District Board, he will follow up on the direction to Regional staff.
