A city councillor’s plan to beautify Valley garbage cans with students’ help could be in the offing.

City Coun. John Douglas pitched the idea to School District 70 trustees at their Jan. 25 meeting.

The idea involves affixing cedar siding in a picket-fence style around selected city garbage cans.

Douglas would lobby for the wood to do the project, which could be done in partnership with students from the high school.

The project could start with a small number of cans and expand to do more later, Douglas said.

Trustees voted to have trustee Glenn Wong work on putting the project together.
