Correction: District of Taylor to forgive fees of burial for former councillor and mayor

Correction: The previous story stated Jean Von Hollen when it should have been Tony Von Hollen.

TAYLOR, B.C. – The District of Taylor is forgiving the fees for the burial of the ashes of Tony Von Hollen who used to be a former Councillor and Mayor with the District of Taylor.

But before they could go ahead with the decision, they had to make sure they could legally do it. Once that was cleared, they took the vote to council.

Mayor Rob Fraser said that with all the work he put in for the district, that he had no problem waiving the fees.

He also asked that staff come back with a policy for forgiveness of costs for previous Mayor or Council members that sat on the board.
