Projects deferred to meet unapproved Gardens cost overruns

A $2.5 million project at the Seymour intersection by Highways 11 and 17 is one the casualties of the Memorial Gardens cost overruns. Council had hoped to start work at the site this year to improve traffic flow in a joint project with the Ministry of Transportation. But now the earliest that work can begin is next year. Council has to cut $5.2 million dollars in projects to meet the overruns. That figure includes $1 million from FedNor which was never granted to the city for the renovations. Other deferred projects are reducing re-surfacing work and storm water management as well as reducing rehab work on trails and playgrounds. Council is opting to defer work instead of borrowing money or dipping into reserves to meet the overrun.
