Councillor Cardozo voiced her concerns about the awarding of grants, specifically that decisions rested on the shoulders of three Councillors and representatives from the RDEK.  She went on to say that some other municipalities do have different systems which may be more democratic in nature. Apparently representatives from Columbia Basin Trust are willing to discuss other systems with council.  Staff were asked to look into this for next year.  In the meantime the system will remain for this granting year.
