Next week is jam-packed with flood related meetings in Grand Forks. There’s a meeting on Tuesday, December 11th, at 6PM at Grand Forks Secondary School regarding housing appraisals.

Recovery Manager Graham Watt explains. “They can have questions answered and kind of talk about the process in person, and there will be representatives of the Recovery Team and Keystone Appraisals there, and that will help explain the process a bit better and help them understand when they’ll get the information and that kind of thing.”

He says there’s Recovery Update Meetings next week as well. “Thursday (December 13th) at 5 o’clock at the River Valley Community Church there’s a South Ruckle neighbourhood specific meeting because there hasn’t been a recent one with that group, and at 6 o’clock the meeting for the general community. So a couple of the last major community meetings of the year we’re trying to make sure we reach as many people as possible at this point.”

A Red Cross information session actually kicks off the week at Grand Forks Secondary School on Monday, December 10th, at 5:30PM. That’s regarding Small Business Relief Funding, to go over the recent announcement with business owners.
