Chapleau Council Approves Contracts for Dock Installation and More

Plans are moving forward to change the municipal dock on the Chapleau River.

Council's awarded a $1500 contract to install a new dock - something Mayor Michael Levesque explains as a solution to a problem with the original dock plan.

Mayor Levesque notes the contract awarded this week is simply for the installation of the floating docks, as they were already constructed by a local company.

Council's also approved a nearly $66,000 agreement for inspections of four local bridges, over $21,000 in repairs to the front-end loader, a nearly $17,000 "summer work agreement" for combination maintenance/capital work at the Recreation Centre - replacing the brine piping system - and a rezoning request to allow a medical office in the basement of a local doctor's existing residence.
