New Westminster approves pool-financing plan

What's happening at city hall

The city held an “alternate approval process” related to its plan to borrow millions of dollars for the project. The 41 responses received by the June 10 deadline were far below the 10 per cent (5,061) electors required to prevent council from proceeding with the loan authorization bylaw.

Council approved a loan authorization bylaw that allows the city to borrow up to $93.6 million to fund the replacement of the Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre with a new aquatics and community centre.
