Word Delayed On Providing Power For Expansion Of Metal Shredder

Common Council still isn't ready to give details on how the city plans to power a metal shredder expansion on the city’s lower west side at the port.

Information was expected to be released this week concerning a new option after nearby residents objected to the use of above ground power lines.

Mayor Ivan Court says Council is still in negotiations with the province and NB Power.

After a closed-door emergency meeting last week Court saying he couldn't comment on whether the option involved an alternate route or underground transmission lines until the costs were worked out.
