Council briefs: Awards tender for building removal; Approves variance permit

Awards tender for building removal
At its November 2 meeting, City of Powell River council awarded a contract tender to Augusta Recyclers to disassemble and remove the former barge-facility building near Powell River’s south harbour at a cost to the city of $24,550, plus GST.

Approves variance permit
Council approved a development-variance permit for the subdividing of a Cranberry residential lot on Park Avenue to allow narrower width than the city’s required minimum permitted for its zoning. Councillor Rob Southcott said lots on Park Avenue are large and the variance should be granted as the city’s strategic priority encourages neighbourhood densification.
