There were a few gaps at the council’s table Tuesday, but it was standing-room only for interested people in White Rock Town Hall, as the council got its first glimpse at the proposal to create catalytic development in White Rock, heard the IT division’s plans for a county fiber network and adopted a new initiative that will pervade all county departments and boards with a program of sustainability.As budget hearings for the fiscal years 2009-2010 are approaching, Tuesday’s meeting provided a last opportunity for council to get some idea of the cost of implementing the three projects, despite the absent councilors: Councilor Jim West, who is still recuperating from back surgery; Councilor Nona Bowman, who is traveling, and Councilor Robert Gibson, who was delayed, but arrived shortly after the meeting started.
