Sechelt pays SCREDO dues

Economic Development

The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization (SCREDO) has received the last of its funding cheques from the local governments that created the arm’s-length entity.

Sechelt, Gibsons, the Sunshine Coast Regional District and the Sechelt Indian Government District are funding the agency to the tune of $300,000 per year.

Coun. Noel Muller presented the $65,859.50 cheque, representing Sechelt’s first three payments for fiscal 2017, to the chair of the SCREDO board on July 5.

Muller, who was part of the original steering committee that led to the creation of SCREDO in 2016, told his fellow councillors at their meeting later in the day that it was “a nice opportunity to finish up a file I’d been working on for the last two-and-a-half, three years” and joked that it was his first photo-op in a while.

SCREDO is operating under a four-year service agreement between the four local governments to work toward reducing economic disparity, increasing the number of growing businesses, and opening up more career opportunities for people who want to live on the Sunshine Coast.
