The schedule also sets out the Acting Mayor Schedule, which will see Coun. Samson take January and July, Coun. Kerr take February and August, Coun. Cornfield in March and September, Coun. Babchuk in April and October, Coun. Wright in May and November and Coun. Evans take June and December.

The Union of BC Municipalities conference takes place in Whistler this year from Sept. 10 -14 and the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities conference will take place in Victoria April 13-15.

The public will also go to the polls next year.

On Saturday, Oct. 19 Campbell River will elect their next city council and school district trustees.

That new council will then go into financial planning for 2019 from Dec. 3-5.
