No Go for Granite Curb

The city has decided against using granite curbing for the Princess Street sidewalk repairs. City staff say the lower cost of concrete curbing will save about 235 thousand dollars which can be used for other reconstruction projects. Staff also say granite would cost more for ongoing repair and maintenance work.

Both Uptown Saint John and city resident Donna Reardon sent letters to Council in May from asking the City reconsider the decision to use concrete curb as opposed to granite curb.
