Budget committee recommends fixing Gardiner and wants to look into selling it
The city's budget committee is recommending $505-million in funding over the next 10 years to fix up the Gardiner Expressway.
Budget Chief Mike Del Grande is sternly telling councillors, they need to vote the same way, when the opportunity arises.
City staff say the repairs are badly needed and admitted last week, that part of the road could be unusable if it isn't fixed within the next 6 years.
The budget will be debated by city councillors in January.
Committee members also approved a motion to look into selling or leasing the Gardiner and the DVP, as well as examine tolls for non-residents and a tunnel underneath the roadway.
The staff report on that is due in May.
