City Council passed a resolution Monday evening to approve the installation of service connections on Brandon Crescent as a part of the City of Thompson Phase 2 Watermain renewal.
Deputy Mayor Kathy Valentino spoke out in support of the resolution, saying that it was a smart thing to do
She said the area was designated as part of the paving program, but that it makes more sense to do the watermain work that needs to be done first, so that they don’t pave the road then rip it up to do the work.
She added that it’s good that the City has contingency money so they don’t have to go looking for funding elsewhere.
The recommendation from City administration is to defer the paving until next year.
