Members of Nanaimo City Council met yesterday with provincial officials to discuss what’s happening with the Colliery Dams.
Mayor Bill McKay says he and five Councillors sat down with Glen Davidson, the Comptroller of Water Rights and the Deputy Minister, and they outlined the work they’ve done so far.
McKay says the province is well-aware of the work they’ve been doing.
He says they seem willing to give the City the time needed to come up with the best solution, but he has no idea how long that will take or how much that will cost.
The City is still seeking a stay and appeal of the province’s order to fix up the dams.
