Conduct review committee discussed

A special meeting on Thursday will consider if councillors should be appointed to a conduct review committee to investigate complaints against their peers, Coun. Niels Konge and Mayor Mark Heyck.

Sheila Bassi-Kellet, Yellowknife's senior administrative officer, called the city council meeting on Tuesday after being asked to produce a shortlist of potential committee members that could include local professionals and city councillors at a Municipal Services Committee meeting last week.

Bassi-Kellet acknowledged some councillors had already weighed in on the dispute between Konge and Heyck. The special meeting will take place at 12:05 p.m. in the council chamber at City Hall.

The NWT Mining Heritage Society is changing its name to the Yellowknife Historical Society. The move comes after the society chose to broaden its scope beyond mining to preserve and promote "Yellowknife's rich history" in general.

The society formed after Giant Mine shut down in 1999 with a mission to collect and display relevant memorabilia.
