McLean Cres. under budget

Cache Creek councillor congratulates CAO on successful road project.

The paving on MacLean Cresent is finished, but the four new street lights have yet to be turned on.

Coun. Herb Hofer noted at the Apr. 27 Cache Creek Council meeting that the project finished under budget, and gave credit to the Village Administrator, Dan Plamondon, who he thanked for keeping on top of it.

The contract was awarded to Bree Contracting last Fall for $435,745. The final tally hasn’t been released yet.

Mayor John Ranta noted that he hasn’t seen new street lights on yet.

Plamondon said BC Hydro had notified him that it was on their work order, but they were backed up with work and would get to it when they could. There was no date given.

He said the power company had to review and permit the new lights before Bree’s sub-contractors could hook them up.

Unfortunately, he said, until that is done and everything in the contract is complete, the Village can’t release the $40,000 holdback to the company.
