Council voted unanimously in favour of this motion during their April 16 meeting.

This infrastructure moves sewage from one place to another when there isn’t enough elevation difference for gravity to let that happen naturally.

A 470-metre-long pipe on Judd Road is one of two projects that will be worked on.

A 360-metre-long pipe on Guilford Road in Valleycliffe is the second.

 

Landfill vertical expansion

A $1.64-million tender will be going to Whistler Excavations for the third phase of the landfill’s vertical expansion.

Council voted unanimously in favour of this motion during their April 16 meeting.

During the third phase of this project, workers will build up the remainder of the retaining wall to about 10 metres in height.

A staff report says that based on current population growth, this will give the town landfill capacity until approximately 2027.

 

Annual paving contract

About $1.09 million will be going to Alpine Paving Ltd. for annual roadwork.

Council approved the decision unanimously during their April 16 meeting.

“The annual road reconstruction and resurfacing work is a key project forming part of capital improvements to the overall road network,” reads a staff report.

Work will be done on Diamond Head Road; Loggers Lane; Argyle Crescent; Mamquam Road; Government Road; Tantalus Road; Judd Road; Guilford Drive and Cottonwood Road.

The annual reconstruction list was guided by the new master plan, which was endorsed on Nov. 27, 2018.
