City Hall Bus Depot Made Official

It’s official - City Hall is the permanent bus depot for the south core.

Councillors ratified the decision tonight in a 7-4 vote, closing the books on an issue that has seen opinion hotly divided.

Councillor Shelby Ch’ng says it’s time to say it like it is, and stop "lying to constituents" by calling it a temporary location.

Also passed was a motion by Councillor Linda Rydholm to secure money for some additional security in the vicinity.

Rydholm says it's up to city staff where the funds come from - whether it's this year's or next year's budget.

However, a similar motion to allocate funds for extra litter clean-up in the area was defeated.
