City of Quesnel to hold referendum in 2018 asking residents if they should borrow money for project

The City of Quesnel will hold a referendum in 2018 asking residents if the city should borrow money to fund a public works yard.

Mayor Bob Simpson says the city has been discussing plans for a new public works yard since 2002.

The referendum will ask taxpayers if Quesnel should borrow money for the project.

The cost of the project was first estimated around $3-million in 2002 but is now expected to cost $9-million.

The raise in cost is because of inflation and tweaking of the design.

Mayor Simpson says it shouldn’t take over 14 years to decide if a project should be funded.

The referendum will take place during the 2018 municipal election.
