Nanaimo Council won’t have to pick a remediation option for the Colliery Dams when it meets Monday, thanks to a stay of a provincial order.
Mayor Bill McKay says the stay from the province is just temporary.
McKay says a delegation of Councillors will be meeting with provincial officials on Thursday, and he says the Colliery Dam situation is new territory for both levels of government.
McKay says they should find out if a full stay will be granted in 2-4 weeks, if it is the appeal could still take several months after that.
In meantime, the City will have to keep moving ahead with design and engineering work.
