It’s a large grant that party planners are hoping Vancouver City Council will approve.
The New Year’s Eve Celebration Society is asking the city for $125,000 to support the 2015 New Year’s party at Canada Place.
The society says contributions from the city will allow for extra equipment and security personnel.
Complete with activities and fireworks the party is geared toward a more family-friendly crowd, with a countdown scheduled for 9 p.m.
If approved, the city’s grant will leverage over $275,000 in fundraising efforts by the society and other contributions towards the event.
The motion is expected to be brought to council later today.
