Council awarded the 153 Mile Store relocation contract to McGinn Engineering and Preservation Ltd. for a total not exceeding $28,000, excluding GST; and further, that Council add a budget of $35,000 for the work to the proposed 2016 Annual Budget.

More council briefs are as follows:

• The owner of the burned building at Williams Inn has received a 90-day demolition compliance order.

• Council has scrapped the idea of supporting a round about for the intersection at Proctor Street near the exit of the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex due to higher than anticipated costs.

Mayor Walt Cobb said council had budgeted $250,000 toward the project, but the estimates came in at $300,000 more than that.

“There was no way we could afford it,” Cobb said.

“There will just be the four-way stop there instead.”
