Council approves motions, Northlands repairs given go ahead
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - After years of haggling and negotiating, the city of Yellowknife is finally ready to go ahead with the replacement of the water and sewer infrastructure in Northlands Trailer Park.
Monday night at council, Northlands resident Trevor Kasteel put forward two motions that he hoped could be included in the agreement between the two parties.
He said the first one is meant to be a show of good faith in writing.
"The city of Yellowknife and Condo Corp. 8 will continue to work together to investigate additional funding opportunities up until the project is complete, and the LIC (Local Improvement Charge) commences. They will work together in good faith to access any funding opportunities to further decrease the monthly LIC payment."
The second one is a request for the two parties to continue negotiations with MACA to find ways to cut costs.
Some councillors did have concerns about rushing the motions but Cory Vanthuyne tried to put things in perspective.
"[The condo corp. has] advocated that they'd like to see that it move forward, all of us have advocated that we want to see it move forward, and I'm sure that if legal has any glaring problems with it, they will be identified. I see no problem with accepting the motion."
Council approved the motions, contingent upon legal review.
