City Council met last Friday for a special meeting.
The meeting was called in regards to the Thompson Cemetery, with the question before Council being whether or not Maple Leaf Construction should be awarded the contract to pave the interior roads.
The resolution was passed six to one.
Councillor Ron Matechuk was the lone councillor voting against the resolution, and said that he’d rather see the money go towards roads that are in worse shape and see more traffic.
The paving of the roads will cost the City of Thompson $85,000, which Councillor Blake Ellis said is manageable since $100,000 was originally budgeted for the job.
Councillors Wong and Byer were not able to make the meeting.
