An investment in a new specialized float for fishing boats and other commercial vessels seems to by paying of for the Gibsons Landing Harbour Authority
Council heard this week from the GLHA’s Terry Rhodes.
He says Howe Sound has been a hot zone during the spot prawn season, and that’s brought a lot of commercial traffic into the harbour, contributing to a 15 per cent increase in revenue.
Rhodes says traffic is up in other categories too, including day visits and overnight visits.
Councillors also voted to back the Harbour Authority’s application for grants from the federal government and Island Coastal Economic Trust to pay for more upgrades to the commercial “drive-on” float
