Council approves adding $2.9 million to capital budget for Transit Terminal construction project

City Council voted 8-1 in favour of a request from administration to add $2.9 million to the existing $17-million capital budget for the downtown Regional Park 'n Ride Transit Terminal project, now under construction, after the final tender came in over budget. No impact on local property taxes will result because the difference is being funded from available federal and provincial grants.
