Hall will dig into own pocket for banquet


Langley City Councillor Dave Hall offered to fork over $1,500 of his own money to add to this year’s Volunteer Banquet if the city doesn’t take the funds from reserves.

The annual banquet honours those who volunteer in Langley City each year.

On Monday night, Hall made two motions regarding adding $1,500 in expenses towards the event.

First, he asked the City council to approve taking the money out of a surplus rather than from new money in this year’s budget.

Hall’s motion called for the cash to come from the operating surplus left over from 2013, from the Enterprise Funds, or from casino revenues.

If that doesn’t work, Hall has asked that he be allowed to pay for the extra money out of his own pocket.

His second motion says he will write a personal cheque for the $1,500.

Hall said he plans to take the money from funds he’s been paid for various committees and regional groups he’s sat on in the last year.

The motions may be debated, if another councillor seconds them, at a future City council meeting.
